Mumbai: TV star Juhi Parmar has hit out at ex-husband Sachin Shroff for labelling their marriage “loveless”.
Following their divorce last month, in an interview with a leading daily, Shroff had said that “Juhi was never in love with me. One-sided relationships are doomed from the beginning.” In a lengthy post shared on her social media accounts, Parmar claimed that Shroff “assassinated” her character publicly by calling their marriage a “one-sided relationship”.
“My integrity has been questioned and blamed by my ex-husband. I have been completely misinterpreted and misquoted by my ex-husband who claims ‘That I was never in love with him.’ I want to ask that when and where have I said those words?… And by calling our marriage a one-sided relationship you have not only crushed and negated all my efforts that I put into our marriage but also insulted me publicly and assassinated my character.
“If I didn’t love the man I was married to, I wouldn’t have stayed him for nine years of my life and given birth to a child which is ‘ours’. Two decades of hard work to build an image, a niche for myself but today my parents, my family and I have to face emotional torture, abuse and nuisance due to the comments you have made,” she wrote.
Parmar said during her nine-year-long marriage they were on the verge of separation twice, but she “really tried” to make things work, setting aside her career.
“You claim that you had deeply loved me. A man who has ever loved his wife and child, would never raise a finger on ‘his’ family publicly even after they are divorced. You have been quoted in the media stating that till now you were quiet because you were worried about the implications on Samairra.
“… Today not only is her mother’s image being harmed but our daughter’s image is getting hampered as well. Will she not be tormented when she grows up and reads comments about herself and her existence being questioned? How will she feel when she reads comments from people who are questioning why she was ever brought into this world? Is this fair to her?” she added.
Parmar said Shroff’s version of the story was a “one-sided fabricated story”. The duo finalised their divorce on June 25.
