Marriages may be made in heaven, but separation and life after that totally depends on how couples deal with it. One of the most graceful divorces Bollywood has seen in recent times is that of actor Ranvir Shorey and ex-wife and actor Konkana Sensharma.
The couple got married in 2010 and together have a 10-year-old son Haroon. While the parents separated in 2015, they officially got divorced only in 2020.
Speaking with media in his recent interview, Ranvir expressed how Konkana and him are working together to ensure that that their son is unaffected by their feelings for each other. Ranvir gave an insight into how they co-parent Haroon, and said that there are no rigid rules in place. Ranvir quoted:
Haroon is free to move freely between his parents’ homes, as and when he chooses. But right now, he is dividing time between them, on a week-to-week basis.
Speaking to Times Now, Khosla Ka Ghosla star said,
I think the best way to put it is, it will be that even if we couldn’t give him one home, we have at least managed to give him one neighbourhood. We don’t keep things rigid that if he is with me, he can’t see you and if he is with you, he can’t see me. If both of us are not working right now in the lockdown – one week he is with me, one week he is staying at her house.
Adding further, Ranvir said,
And even in between, if he is free to go whenever he wants to go from one house to another house. So we have kept it very fluid and easy. It is important not to let the feelings that we have for each other affect the child’s life.
Ranvir has been posting his happy moments with son – sometimes on his holidays or jointly celebrating his birthday with Konkana.
Earlier in February this year, Ranvir was quizzed whether he would partner with Konkana again professionally. While replying in negative, Ranvir then said,
Even if the bitterness is there, it should not spill over to the child’s life. That is more important for me. Whatever steps we take, they have to be right for Haroon.
On the work front, Ranvir will be next seen in Sunflower, to be premiered on June 11 on Zee5.
- It is totally incorrect to blame only one partner when a relationship fails
- A bond is broken beyond repair, when both sides are unable to equally contribute emotionally and otherwise to a marriage
- It is unfair for either spouse to trap their partner legally, even if they claim they are doing it ‘for the sake of children’
- Infact, marriages where couples fight and abuse each other daily, are even worse, as young minds grow up with a baggage of extremely unpleasant memories
- In such circumstances, it is best that both parents mutually discuss and decide the way forward, keeping in mind the best interest of the child
- There is no taboo associated with divorce today, but if you brainwash the child against each other, surely you are his biggest enemy
- We are certain that kids like Haroon will grow up with the best of upbringing imparted by both his parents and grandparents, Vs other children who have been fraudulently kept away from non-custodial parents (often fathers in this case)
- We hope such examples can only help build a loving and happy society, instead of fighting meaningless and endless ego battles in court
