Getting kicked out of one’s own house is the most brutal and painful thing that can happen, but imagine, discovering that your wife is not your wife (legally we mean) in reality! Confused? Well, we can only imagine the plight of an actor who is apparently going through all this and much more (if reports are to be believed).
Actor-turned-director Deepak Tijori was married to Shivani Tomar, a fashion designer by profession. The couple was living in a Goregaon flat with their 20-year-old daughter, Samara Tijori, before differences cropped up and the duo decided to separate.
Now according to a 2017 report, Deepak Tijori was kicked out of his own house by his estranged wife Shivani.
On one hand, Shivani filed for maintenance under 125 CrPC (Code of Criminal Procedure) and on the other hand, the ex-Bigg Boss contestant ‘discovered’ that his wife, Shivani was not his wife after all, as she had not yet divorced her first husband. And so, which means, they are not legally married and their marriage stands null and void.
It’s not clear if Deepak and Shivani are legally husband and wife or not, but a source quoted Shivani as saying:
"I am a deserted wife. I cannot maintain my expenses. My husband is liable to do the needful for me and my daughter."
Leading entertainment website, Pinkvilla reached out to Deepak’s sis-in-law, Kunika Sadanand, to know the facts.
She was quoted as saying:
“Obviously, someone is putting the story in the press so that the court gets prejudice because they are in court for divorce and their alimony settlement has to be done."
Talking about the marriage being null and void, she said:
“Can a person be married for 26 years and realize that their marriage is null and void? I am sure someone is doing this mischief, we are not bothered by such stories because the court will take an opinion based on whatever is there in front of them."
Talking about Shivani not divorcing her first husband, Kunika said:
“I don't know of my sister not being divorced and getting married to Deepak Tijori. That (Shivani's first husband) person also got married so that means his marriage is also null and void? It is all rubbish."
Finally revealing if reports indicating Deepak has been thrown out of the house, Kunika stated:
"He is there only, he lives there partly, he has a girlfriend also, so he lives with the girlfriend also. He comes and goes in the house. How can she throw him out, he is the father of her child? He has his own room there and if he is thrown out, you think he doesn't have the key?"
This whole episode is just too confusing and so we hope, Deepak and Shivani come out gracefully and reveal what the truth is. Till then, stay tuned with us for more updates on this case and your other favourite celebs.
