Sitara Devi was not just a talented artist, but also a strong woman who promoted feminism and women by living life on her own terms. 

Sitara Devi had four marriages. Mr Desai was her first spouse, and nothing is known about him. Her second spouse was actor Nazir Ahmed Khan. There was also a significant religious divide, with Khan being a Muslim and Sitara Devi being a Hindu. Sitara Devi's third marriage was to film-maker K. Asif. This marriage also did not last very long, and it was childless. After her third divorce, Sitara married Pratap Barot, a Hindu gentleman of Gujarati heritage. The couple had a son, Ranjit Barot, born in 1950.
