Kashmera had to fly from the USA to India for work. The Hindi-English film 'My Bollywood Bride' or 'My Faraway Bride', produced by Brad Listermann and featuring Kashmera as the lead actress, tells a scenario similar to her love affair with Brad.

The Second Marriage of Kashmera

There were rumors that she had broken up with Brad later in 2006, which later proved to be accurate. They split up for a number of reasons, including their differences on a personal and professional level, as well as her friendship with Krushna Abhishek, a well-known comedian in India.

I talked to Mami (Govinda's wife, Sunita) about it and told her that you guys went to Kapil Sharma's show and you need to come to my show as well. People are asking me. Then they came, and it was a fantastic episode. But then, Kashmera tweeted something wrong for my sister. Govinda thought it was for them. I tried to clarify, but Mami got angry. Then, I decided not to get in between Mami and Kashmera. Then, it was the first birthday of my kid. They didn't come for it, and then I got upset. My mother has raised Govinda ji, so I have all the right to be upset with him."
