On-screen devar-bhabhi of Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, Avinash and Shalmalee fell in love with each other while working together for the show. Earlier also, there were reports that the couple was having troubles in their marriage, but they slammed such rumours. And now, Avinash confirmed to SpotboyE, that he and Shalmalee have been granted the divorce, ending their 3 years of marriage. Shalmalee has moved in with her mother.
As per the sources, Shalmalee did not trust Avinash and doubted his loyalty towards her. The were arguments between the two in the last two months, and it reached a stage where the two were not willing to see each other’s face.
In an interview with the TOI, Avinash had earlier said, "I don't have a clue about what's happening in my marriage. Our families have been trying for a patch-up, but there has been no progress so far. I want to focus only on my work for now." He added, "I don't know if Shalmalee and I will get back together or we will separate forever. I am hoping that whatever happens, will happen in our best interests."
It all started with rumours when a source close to the couple revealed this to a famous entertainment tabloid, Bollywoodlife, “A few days back, Suyyash Rai held a gig at a suburban hotel called Bombay Adda. Quite a few celebs attended the event including Avinash. When friends asked him about Shalmalee who was missing from the do, he said that she was unwell. A celeb friend of Shalmalee called her up to enquire about her well-being, she said that everything was not hunky dory between the couple. She also made some revelations about him that shocked the friend. Apparently, when Avinash found out that she had spoken about him, they had an argument, which turned rather heated. Post that, Shalmalee decided to file for divorce.” (Also Read: Karisma Kapoor Was About To Become A Bachchan 'Bahu' But Ended Up Becoming Sanjay Kapur’s 2nd Wife)
The Indian Express quoted an insider as saying, “Avinash-Shalmalee had been quite happy initially but they have been constantly fighting these days. With insecurity regarding work growing stronger, the couple’s conjugal life has been going through a tough time.”
When rumours started doing the rounds about their divorce, Avinash said, “I have been getting calls regarding it (that his marriage isn’t working out). Every relationship has its share of ups and downs. We are trying to work out the best for both of us. We wish the best for each other. It’s a mutual feeling. But a few media houses are speculating too much for just TRPs’ sake and are just spoiling it further by making random statements.”
On the other hand, Shalmalee stated, "I am shocked with whatever I heard. All that is being claimed is rubbish. We are having issues and we are trying to level things. The people who are involved in this are me, Avi, his parents and my parents. This is our personal problem and we will figure a way for it which will be the best for both of us. There is absolutely no bad blood between me and Avi. The poor guy has never ever raised his finger at me, leave alone beating me. He is one of the sweetest and gentlest people you will ever find. There is nothing of that sort. There is no complaint that I have lodged. My parents will in fact vouch for what a good guy Avi is. Whatever is there is within the family and we will try and sort it out." (Also Read: Naga Chaitanya Wants To Go To A Bachelor Party But Wifey Samantha Has Something To Say)
