And the season of Breakups continues. 2016 doesn’t seems like the year for lovers! While people are still getting over the Ranbir-Katrina, Farhan-Adhuna and Virat-Anushka, now comes the news of Bollywood’s veteran actor Om Puri ending 26-year-long marriage with wife Nandita.
Puri and Nandita have decided to live separately without going for a divorce and the actor getting visiting rights to son Ishaan, 18.
“The court order came last week. It was a clash of our sensibilities. This happens with people so there is nothing unusual in it. Nandita and I are supposed to talk only regarding Ishaan’s education and welfare,” Puri said.
His lawyer Jalaja Nambiar said the couple will have separate lives without divorce.
“Mr Puri wanted divorce but because things started going here and there, he opted for an amicable settlement and the court granted them judicial separation under which they are a married couple legally but have their separate lives and cannot interfere in each other’s matter,” she said.
The news came out in the open when Nandita wrote and released Om puri’s biography “Unlikely Hero: The Story Of Om Puri”
Om Puri felt that his wife wrote and exposed his past relationship in a disrespectful manner.
