"I have been living alone for the last four-five years. There were differences from the beginning, which continued to grow, especially after I returned from Indonesia. I tried to sort things out with my wife, but could not save the marriage. It struggled with differences and compatibility issues. The divorce is in process and is expected to be completed in two months."
Rohit further added that he had faced another huge loss in the year 2021. He mentioned about his mother's demise in 2021 from which he hasn't recovered till now. Talking about the same, he mentioned:

Rohit and his estranged wife, Poonam, are also parents to their 10-year-old daughter. Explaining his pain of not meeting his daughter for two years, he added how much emotional turmoil he is currently going through. He added:
"I haven't seen my daughter in two years. Maa chali gayi, aur daughter door ho gayi. I was going through emotional turmoil and went into a shell."
Concluding the conversation, Rohit mentioned that it had taken a considerable amount of time for him to deal with his personal matters. However, he added that he is a changed person now and wants to do some good work to make his parents and daughter proud of him.
