In an interview with India Today, Ashish Vidyarthi opened up about the first time he and his ex-wife, Rajoshi shared the news of their separation to their son, Arth. However, Ashish also mentioned how Arth reacted to the entire situation. The Soldier actor revealed that he knew if he hadn't parted ways with his ex-wife, it would have greatly impacted their son, Arth. Thus, to not have a slow drop of poison, Ashish and Rajoshi took this decision. He shared:

"There was a lot of guilt, both Piloo and I did not want to give this kind of a life to him. Arth was there in the picture, even as we were going through the differences. We discovered that staying together would make a mess of it, that would have impacted both Piloo and me, and more importantly, it would have affected Arth. He would very clearly know that parents are messing up. They're really upset with one another, and it would be a slow drop of poison."

Further, in the same conversation, Ashish revealed he felt extremely guilty while taking up the confidence to tell his son about his separation from Rajoshi. However, finally, when he and Rajoshi talked about the same to Arth, who is a 22 years old professional, the doting son shared that he is still processing it. Ashish shared:

"So, the first part is that it was very painful to even arrive and say it's not working out. And then the part of telling Arth and taking him into confidence came in. There's a huge amount of guilt but we were very clear that we take responsibility for what we are doing, and we are talking to an adult child. It was very difficult to communicate with him, but hats off to him. He is still processing it, but I remember he said, 'the way you both are resolving it is better than pestering yourself into something.' Obviously, he is gone through his stuff."
