Mumbai: Mahabharat fame Nitish Bharadwaj recently announced his separation from his wife IAS officer Smita Gate. For the unversed, Nitish had got married to Smita Gate in 2009. The couple parted ways in September 2019 and they have twin daughters, who are currently staying with their mother in Indore.
Now after 2 years the actor has reacted to this. Nitish said the case has been filed in the Family Court in Mumbai and said he doesn’t want to get into the reasons for the divorce. “All I can say is that sometimes divorce can be more painful than death as you live with an amputated core,” he told sources.
Both Nitish and Smita were married earlier. Their respective relationships also ended on a sad note, but this hasn’t left the Mahabharat actor cynical about marriage. Calling himself a believer of marriage despite ‘being unlucky’. “It’s the children who suffer the most when a family breaks down. So, the onus is on the parents to ensure that there’s minimum collateral damage that their children have to go through,” he said.
The actor, however, did not share whether he is in touch with his daughters, saying that he wants to ‘reserve his comments’ on that.
