TV actress Upasana Singh took everyone by surprise when a few years ago she declared that she would be getting divorced with husband Neeraj Bharadwaj. The duo has been separated for four years now. For the uninitiated, Upasana was the one who essayed the role of Bua from Comedy Nights with Kapil and The Kapil Sharma Show, while Neeraj was part of Star Plus’ popular show, Saath Nibhaana Saathiya. Well, now reports suggest that after four years the couple has decided to give their marriage a second shot and won’t be filing for a divorce.
When Neeraj was asked about this latest development by a leading daily, he said, “We realised that in an attempt to give each other space, we drew apart. Also, there were outsiders who tried to take advantage of the situation by escalating issues between us. Unfortunately, instead of talking to each other, we listened to them and that led to more differences. Which couple doesn’t fight? But I misunderstood it as lack of love and decided that I can’t force Upasana to be with me against her wish. All that was required was for us to communicate to sort out our differences. The biggest mistake was that we didn’t clarify with each other because of our ego. To top it all, we were staying separately because it was convenient for us to travel to our respective sets. Everything is fine now and this marriage is for keeps.”
Upasana, on the other hand, said that it was only normal for any couple to fight and that was no big deal . “My husband is quite temperamental (laughs), possibly that’s why he said what he did (about them contemplating divorce). He regretted what he said, but it was too late to clarify. We could have sorted our issues amicably. I was more angry with him for speaking with the media about our personal issues and thinking of taking such a drastic step (divorce). My family and in-laws were quite disturbed after reading the news and I was busy fielding questions on my personal life.” Well, we ‘re happy that the couple has decided to let bygone be bygone and work on their differences and lead a happy and fulfilling life together.
