Moving forward in the interview, the actress also talked about the current scenario between her and hubby, Mihir Mishra. Stressing on the fact that people evolve with time and they’ve evolved in different paths, she said, “Many people had given our Marriage just three weeks, but it lasted 16 years. It means that we had much love, care and compassion for each other. However, relationships and people evolve with time. In our case, we evolved at different paces, and our paths diverged. I have an aesthetic way of looking at life. Maybe, we had a karmic debt, and it lived out its course.”
However, the actress has revealed that she wants their friendship to survive this ordeal. She explained, “It’s even more sad, because a lot of people felt that ours was a fairy-tale romance. What was most beautiful about our bond was that we were friends first and then partners. I hope that our friendship survives this ordeal. Having said that, happiness is essential for every human being, and it shouldn’t be compromised on, at any cost.” Heading towards the closure in her statements, she sends out blessings for Mihir and also talked about the decision of divorce. “I wish Mihir all the very best. It’s been 16 wonderful years with him. I would request the media to respect our privacy and let us heal with grace. I don’t know and can’t say anything about it at this point. We haven’t spoken about it.” Well, it’ll be interesting to see what Mihir has in the store about his troubled marriage. But it’s always not less than a blessing to see a couple dealing with such nerve-wracking situation with maturity and balance.
