It seems like our Bollywood industry is constantly clouded with sad and good news going hand in hand. Just as we get one pleasant news about someone’s wedding date or pregnancy, it is followed by heart-breaking news of a couple's separation. Today, one such sad news is about the divorce of Wake Up Sid actress, Konkona Sen and her estranged husband, Ranvir Shorey. Amidst extreme shooting schedules and heavy work pressures, Aparna Sen’s daughter, Konkona Sen Sharma met Ranvir Shorey on the sets of a musical comedy film, Mixed Doubles. Their love began with a script and finally reached its destination of marriage. (Recommended Read: Nick Jonas Gives A Cool Reply On His 10 Year Age Difference With Wife, Priyanka Chopra Jonas)
The couple had tied the knot on September 3, 2010, in a private setup with their family members and closed ones. Both Ranvir and Konkona had revealed that they're married after two days of their private marriage through their respective tweets. After which, the whole industry came forward to give their blessings to the beautiful couple. While Konkona had adorned typical Bengali attires, Ranvir was all set to show off his Punjabi chivalry in a cream coloured sherwani. However, in 2015 both Konkona and Ranvir had decided to start living separately and after five years of living separately, the couple has officially filed for divorce.
According to a report of SpotboyE, both Ranvir Shorey and Konkona Sen have decided not to give their marriage a second chance. Despite going through a lot of relationship counselling, the couple doesn’t want to continue their relationship as husband-wife. The reports have also revealed that the request for separation was a mutual decision taken by both Konkona and Ranvir. Talking about the legal formalities then they’re already done and the decree is going to come through in the coming six months. One of the sources of the SpotboyE has also added “This is one of the most amicable divorces ever seen. But yes, it is extremely sad that they could not get back together as man and wife.” (Don't Miss: Raghubir Yadav's Wife, Purnima Kharga Accuses Him Of Having Affair With Nandita Das, Files Divorce)
The couple started dating in 2007 and had gotten married in 2010 in a private ceremony and had separated in 2015. Ranvir had gotten himself an apartment near Konkona’s residence to spend enough time with their son, Haroon. Despite, heading for legal separation, the couple is on cordial terms with each other, which is a very rare sight in the glamour world. They have been spotted on friendly outings, quietly enjoying each other's company. Both Ranvir and Konkona have decided to co-parent their son, Haroon who is six-year-old. To ensure that their separation doesn’t leave a bitter impact on their son, they have mutually decided to spend quality time with him, one by one.
Talking about changing the stereotype and taking up the responsibility of bringing up his son, just like his mother does, here is what Ranvir said during a media conference back in 2014 during his film, Titli’s release. He had stated “It’s about changing gender roles. Since Haroon’s mom is usually busier than I am, we came up with this idea. It’s not so much about spending a few hours bonding with my son as it’s about child-rearing. So, Haroon has two homes now and half the time he’s at my place and the other half with his mom."
According to Ranvir, men need to break the stereotype and come out of it. He had revealed in an interview with ScoopWhoop and had retorted “With women stepping out and taking on new roles, the time has come for men to step out of their stereotypes too. I’m more patient and my cooking has improved too. Now, Haroon likes what I cook more than what he gets at Konkona’s. I cook my specialities for him.” Although we are sad on hearing that things did not work out for the duo, we are also glad that they are heading their ways amicably, without creating any problems for each other, or their son.
