Actress Kirti Kulhari has posted a note on Instagram to announce that she is separating from husband Saahil Sehgal. The note read:
Not on paper, but in life. A decision that is probably harder than the decision of being with somebody, because coming together is celebrated by everyone you love and care about. And the decision of not being with somebody brings along pain and hurt to the same people. It’s not easy.

Earlier in August last year, Kirti had credited her in-laws for her screen success. Kirti tied the knot with Saahil in June 2016, post which her professional life has shaped up in the ‘best possible way’. She added that her husband and in-laws supported her in all her career decisions. Some of her most successful films are Pink (2016), Uri: The Surgical Strike (2019) and Mission Mangal (2019) – all came after she got hitched.
In an interview with TOI back then, Kirti said that an actress’ career no longer comes to a grinding halt after she gets married. She said,
I did not set out to become that woman but I think my marriage kind of coincided with Bollywood going through that change in mindset in the society. It is like you can be 30 and above and still be acting. You can be married, have kids, and still be acting. The industry was going through the transformation and I just joined the bandwagon.

Kirti also then said that she nurtured herself as an actor and person only after marriage. She also added that her husband and in-laws supported her, which helped her reach her current position in the film industry. Kirti quoted:
My marriage has affected my career in the best possible way. I have a husband who knows much more than me about films. I have learnt so much from him. We watch a movie and discuss things. I grew so much as a person and as an actor and all the apprehensions I had before my marriage, were all broken by him. He has supported me in the most amazing way and helped me reach where I am today. Even my in-laws supported me blindly which means a lot to me.
Kirti’s Career Graph:
In 2010, Kirti made her big screen debut with Khichdi: The Movie and followed it up with Shaitaan. She was last seen in the second season of the Amazon Prime Video series Four More Shots Please! – a role which was bold enough where she played a successful lawyer and separated mother.
Kirti’ next will be a role of a police officer in Ribhu Dasgupta’s The Girl On The Train, which also stars Parineeti Chopra and Aditi Rao Hydari. The film is a remake of the 2016 Hollywood drama of the same name, which in turn, is based on Paula Hawkins’ 2015 bestseller.
