Ending their 8 years of marriage, Juhi Parmar and Sachin Shroff filed for a divorce in 2017 and got separated legally on June 25, 2018. The couple have a baby girl Samaira and and Juhi in her earlier interviews has accused her ex-husband of not spending enough time with their daughter.
Recently, in an interview with Spotboye.com, Juhi talked about her life after the ugly split. She opened up on her life now as a single parent. She confessed that it has been tough in the initial stages, but now, she is finally being able to manage and enjoy being a single parent to her six-year-old daughter Samaira.
“Being a single parent is definitely tough, but the child loves you doubly and that keeps you going. Frankly, I have been a single parent since the last 2 years. Every day is challenging, but it has been made easy by primarily by my sister, parents and friend Aashka Goradia. They have been pillars of strength in my hard times.”, Juhi stated.
Talking about how her parents helped her in taking care of her baby girl, Juhi said “They were in Jaipur. My Dad worked in Raymonds, got promoted and shifted to Mumbai, later he retired in 2016. After that, he and Mom chose to not return to Jaipur. They changed their lives for me and Samairra. They said, ‘Juhi, you go out to work and we’ll look after your child’. That’s how I started shooting for Shani.”
Talking about why she hasn’t hirde a caretaker, Juhi was quoted as saying, “I had decided to not get back to work if Samairra was going to be looked after any staff. I have heard horrid stories of kids being badly treated by caretakers. Secondly, I am a very obsessed and indulgent mother. Grandparents aren’t taking care of her because they are paid for it but simply because they love her no end. They stay awake when she is unwell, my Dad attends PTA meetings and even leaves her to school and brings her back.”
When the interviewer asked her if she was worried at any given point of time that she might lose the custody of Samairra, she replied, “Not at all. From Day 1, we had decided that Samaria will be with me.” Further talking about Sachin’s detachment from Samairra, Juhi said, “Well, what can I say? I can’t speak on someone else’s behalf. All I want is to see Samairra the first thing in the morning and then hug her tightly at night by my side.”
Juhi and Sachin featured together in TV shows such as ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’, ‘Maa Exchange’, ‘Star Vivaah’ to name a few.
