The two divorced in 2017 after almost 19 years of marriage; they have a 16-year-old son, Arhaan.

“If you are in an unhappy marriage and that’s what you decide to do you should do it with a lot of dignity, self-respect. Don’t let anybody tell you that you are any less of a woman. With me, I could sense that a lot of people were like, how the hell did you pull it off?”

She said that it’s difficult for a woman to move on with her life after divorce.
