A relationship is a tricky business, especially when they are talked about in context to showbiz world. Some couples set examples of relationship and marriage for everyone to follow while some couples’ don’t work together and part ways. One of such couple is Juhi Parmar & Sachin Shroff. Sachin & Juhi were married for over 9 years before they decided to get a divorce on the 6th of July this year. Together, they have a little girl named Samaira. It all seemed like a mutual decision until Sachin claimed that Juhi was ‘never with love with him’.
In an interview with the Times of India, Sachin remarked, “The divorce happened with mutual consent, amicably and in a dignified manner. Unfortunately, and by Juhi’s own public admission, she was never in love with me. One-sided relationships are doomed from the beginning. It’s said, It’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. But the fact is that it hurts to have been in a loveless marriage. Nothing I did could make Juhi love me.”
When asked if he would consider remarriage, Sachin revealed, “I am more realistic now and I realise that love must be two-sided for a relationship to be successful. It’s too early for me to think about another relationship or marriage. I am still healing emotionally, as I was deeply in love. Let God decide what he has in store for me. I look forward to the rest of my life with optimism and happiness”.
Well, all this didn’t go down well with Juhi Parmar. She broke her silence about the spilt and lashed out at Sachin for calling their marriage “loveless” and for the impact it can have on their five-year-old daughter. On Friday, she took to her Instagram account and wrote an open letter to Sachin. A mother first, an ex-wife now, an actress from the last two decades, a daughter, a sister, I am Juhi Parmar and this is my truth,” Juhi posted on Instagram.
Here’s what Juhi said:
“On January 27, 2013, a mother was born and my first priority has been my daughter ever since. A lot has been said, but why is my question. We had decided we would never blame each other as that’s not in the best interest of our daughter. I had kept my word and always shared the blame of a failed marriage by terming it to be ‘incompatibility’.
I could have never imagined that you will form a base by misconstruing and misinterpreting my so-called statements. You have put the entire blame on me of the marriage crumbling down by calling it a loveless marriage. You claim that I have never loved you no matter what and also that only you loved me that too deeply and thus, you have called it a one-sided marriage and relationship.
I am shattered as a woman, I can’t get over the shock and don’t know how to gather myself to speak up. And yet I must to protect my dignity as a woman, which has been maligned. I must speak up to keep the respect of my child and tell her that she was born out of love and not lovelessly, as that would shatter the whole purpose of her being.
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 with 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.
If I want, I too could have given away various facts to prove what went wrong in our marriage but all that shall remain hidden beneath in my heart. I still choose to keep everything between us because I choose to keep the integrity of our marriage as well as the integrity of the man who was my husband for nine years and who shall always remain the father of my child.
Half the truth is actually as good as a lie! A one-sided fabricated story is actually pretty close to fiction. I know my realities and I know the future, which I must now face with my daughter. “
