Just last week, television celebs Juhi Parmar and Sachin Shroff filed for their divorce. Kumkum fame actress and her estranged hubby, Sachin, tied the nuptial knot on February 15, 2009, and were blessed with a baby girl, Samairra after 4 years of marriage in 2013. But the sad news is that the couple will now be legally separated soon.
However, there has been no official confirmation from the either of them on their divorce, but speaking in an exclusive interview to TellyChakkar, Juhi opened up and said, “It is been more than a year now that Sachin and I are living separately. Sometimes things don’t work out and in our case as I mentioned earlier compatibility was the major reason behind our separation. With the time passing we both understood that things were not working out between us. We tried our best and never kept divorce as an option. But, I believe that one should not be part of a forced relationship. With the course of time we realised that we need to take a decision. Since we belong from a good family and blessed with a beautiful daughter, we didn’t want to make it controversial which would affect us and our child.”
She further added, “My daughter Samaira stays with me and whenever she or Sachin wish to meet each other, I am totally fine with it. Sachin and I are still in a talking terms and there is no bad blood between us. Instead of being in a bad marriage, I would prefer to be good friends which we are now. I want to thank my parents and close friends like Pooja Bedi, Aashka Goradia, Shani producer Siddharth Tewary, Salil Ankola and his wife for their constant support and lending their hands whenever I was in need. It is very important to have people around you when you are facing a tough time in life. Like other girls, even I had few questions in mind running constantly if I am doing the right thing and should I really move on in life? However, I had to take a decision which was a difficult one but better for our future.”
Because Juhi and Sachin are now living separately, Samairra must be missing her dad, to which Juhi replied, “If she misses him I make sure that she goes and meets her father. I am not distancing dad and daughter and I will never do that. There is no ego between us.”
There have been flying rumours that Juhi’s aggression and Sachin’s lazy attitude towards his career, have been the reasons for their separation. To this, Juhi remarked, “Let me clear the air that Sachin is not a lazy person and if I was an aggressive woman I wouldn’t have managed to complete two decades in the industry and had such good friends with me. A lot has been written but it isn’t anyone’s business to know who brings food on my table.”
And finally, on speaking about his plans for her second marriage, she said, “I haven’t thought about it as my child’s future and career is my priority at the moment.”
It’s all sad to hear such news and statement but we do wish all the happiness in this world for the two of them in the separate lives.
