Known to be a strong lady, Kamya Punjabi never hesitates to call spade a spade. She does not believe in mincing words.
But there are a few things in life that do make the actress extremely emotional. One of them is the late Pratyusha Banerjee. The actresses had shared a great soul sister bond.

Recently, Kamya who is otherwise a fine performer, found it very difficult to perform a particular scene in her latest show Shakti- Ek Ehsaas Ki. She had to enact a suicide scene. While talking about it, she said,  "I am a strong woman. But shooting this scene, in which I commit suicide by hanging myself like my friend (Pratyusha) apparently did a few months ago, has been the most difficult one in my life. I was overwhelmed by a weird feeling of helplessness and had knots in my stomach."

She further stated, "It's a huge coincidence that my show replaced Balika Vadhu, in which Pratyusha played the original grown-up Anandi. Our birthdays are just two days apart - hers being on August 10 and mine on 13th. Pratyusha's birthday was the biggest occasion of her life and would begin the preparations a month in advance. She would insist on celebrating our birthdays together. I just couldn't muster the courage to cut the cake on my birthday this year. My co-actors and the unit made me cut one finally. She used to stay over at my place and I still have her clothes and bag at my home."
Pratyusha Banerjee committed suicide on 1st April following turmoil in her relationship with her boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh.

Kamya was very supportive and helpful with Pratyusha's parents through a very horrible time and fielding the media. she has my respect for that.
