In an interview with Zoom Digital, Shruti opened up about her reaction to her parents' divorce. The actress revealed that she is glad that the duo parted ways because if things don't go well between two people, there is no reason to stay together forcefully. She said, "I was just excited for them to live their own lives. I was glad that they separated as I do not think that two people who are not getting along, should stay together forcefully."
