All that glitters is not gold and while the excessively romantic poetry posts of actor Arunoday Singh would leave fans dreaming about his perfect married life, seems like all was not well in the kingdom. In his latest Instagram post, the Aisha star spilled beans about his recent divorce with Canadian wife Lee Elton, leaving fans shell-shocked.

Operating under the handle name ‘sufisoul‘, Arunoday often shared original excerpts and poems that left fans swooning and quoting it in their day-to-day life. However, his recent post was anything but poetic as the actor shared out his feelings emotionally. The post read, “I haven’t been writing or posting for a while. There’s a reason for it, a rather sad one: My marriage seems to be over. Turns out we were very good at love, but couldn’t survive reality. Despite our best efforts, professional counseling, and a current trial separation, nothing seems to have helped bridge the fundamental differences that have emerged between us. It seems wiser to let go. I think we both deserve better. We shall try to resolve this with compassion and dignity.”

Arunoday tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Lee, in December 2016, in a royal Hindu ceremony at Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. The two started dating after they met in Goa, where Lee owned a restaurant. Lee reportedly runs a garden restaurant in Goa and shuffles between it and Mumbai.

Enjoying a fan following of over 1 lakh on the photo-sharing app alone, Arunoday is a rage among Instagrammers who swear by every post of his, unlike his humble footing in the industry.

Last seen in ALTBalaji’s web-series Apharan, Arunoday made his Bollywood debut with the movie Sikandar in 2009 and has to his credit, movies like Yeh Saali Zindagi, Blackmail, Aisha, Ungli and Buddha In A Traffic Jam. For his outstanding performance in Yeh Saali Zindagi, he was even nominated for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role.
