TV actress Juhi Parmar has filed a divorce with husband Sachin Shroff in Bandra court. The estranged couple has 5-year-old daughter Samairra and Juhi has said that she is not going to take alimony from Sachin but he will have to contribute for child support, Juhi is Samirra’s sole coustody.
Juhi has now opened up about the on and off relationship with Sachin, in a statement to leading newspaper, the actress said, “We have sought divorce by mutual consent and our daughter Samairra’s custody is going to be with me. I was very clear right from the start that I will be her sole custodian. Our marriage didn’t work from the beginning. Incompatibility drew us apart; we could never be on the same page. Our backgrounds, mindsets, outlook and expectations from life were completely different. We tried our best, but our differences were irrevocable. I have not asked for any alimony because I am capable of taking care of myself. I just told Sachin to contribute towards child support so that we can secure Samairra’s future; as parents, it’s our collective responsibility.”
She further added, “We decided that it was best to part ways because a harmonious atmosphere is a must for a child. She is too young to understand what’s happening in our lives. However, Sachin’s absence isn’t a new thing for Samairra as we have been separated many times. There have been times when Sachin has not been home and she is used to not seeing him around. However, she does ask about him at times.”
After the split roumours speculations were there that it was Juhi’s temper behind the split while other blamed professional commitments. “I do not have a foul temper. I’m just a transparent person who calls a spade a spade and I’m proud of being an honest and fearless person in today’s times. People are writing loosely, assuming that it’s the reason for our divorce. It is my request to all of them to stop judging. What happens between two people, only -they will know. A marriage – successful or failed involves two people and not one. It is easy to blame it on one person based on hearsay and jump to conclusions. I don’t want people to write baseless rumours because when my daughter grows up and reads these stories, she will be hurt.”
