While Harsh got married to Bengali actress, Suneeta Gupta, Shefali, on the other hand, is married filmmaker, Vipul Amrutlal Shah.

Harsh once claimed that he could sense that his marriage with Shefali would have ended

Previously, in one of his interviews with The Hindustan Times, Harsh Chhaya had explained how from the very starting, he could sense that his marriage with Shefali Shah wouldn’t last long, and he ended up sensing it for nearly eight months prior to finally calling it quits. Referring to how he retrospects the entire episode very pragmatically, the actor said:

“It hurt. The separation didn’t take me by surprise. I had seen it coming for almost eight months.  still look back at it very pragmatically. Two people met, fell in love, got married and parted ways. One couldn’t do anything about it. I felt it was better to separate than live a life where you don’t know where your marriage is going. After feeling bad and gathering enough sympathy for myself, I finally got out of it in six months.”
