Excerpts from the conversation that ensued:
We think it hurts you that Ashish has remarried…
I don’t know where this belief comes from. I think I timed my Insta post wrong. People jumped up and started performing. The interpretation has been wrong. Today’s media works on social media posts and your personal interpretations, right?
Seriously, I’m not hurt. Ashish is a gem of a person. It’s just that we started to see life differently, since the last two years or so.
What does that mean?
It means that his needs were not the same as mine. Their needs were different. We even start to think differently (pause).
I am a dancer and actor.
I don’t think you want to elaborate, but we got the feeling that you wanted to dig deeper into work and he wanted you to take care of his house…
We’ll take that and let you keep the details of the reason, but were there fights when you two were on the verge of breaking up?
Really, none at all. Our son Arth knew that his father would marry someone else. Ashish and I sat down amicably and decided that we should split up as a couple. We called him and told him. Then we went abroad to meet him. Ashish’s current wife, Rupali, also met my son. He has a very progressive mind.
Ashish and Rupali even come back home. We also go to his house…
Do they come to your house?
Yes, without bitterness. I believe that a man is not committing any crime if he remarries after divorcing his first wife on amicable terms. The man can be 21 or 61 years old. Why does the media get so excited and start interpreting social media posts and producing articles based on those posts?
Rupali came into Ashish’s life after you two got divorced?
Yes. Ashish had even told me that he has someone in his life.
Will you marry again?
My decision right now is ‘No’. But Ashish wanted a wife after we divorced.
We have a feeling we’ll see you working harder now…
You’re right. I have signed a YRF movie, a Dharma movie. And I intend to restart my work ‘Umara’.
