Rati and hus­band patch up, call off di­vorce

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

In April this year, ac­tor Rati Ag­ni­hotri shocked the in­dus­try when she re­vealed that her hus­band, Anil Vir­wani (inset), had abused her for 30 years. The ac­tor not only walked out of her house, and filed a po­lice com­plaint, but she also spoke at length about her trau­matic ex­pe­ri­ence. At the time, Vir­wani ve­he­mently de­nied the al­le­ga­tions. While the cou­ple was headed for di­vorce, we have now learnt that in a re­cent de­vel­op­ment, Rati is back with Vir­wani. She has cho­sen to not dwell on the past.

Con­firm­ing this news, Vir­wani says, “Yes, things have be­come much bet­ter. Now, none of us wants to fo­cus on the bit­ter­ness. We’re back to our happy selves. I have known Rati for 33 years and that is a lot of time ... you don’t part ways just like that. There is no ques­tion of a sep­a­ra­tion.”

When asked what brought them back to­gether when their mar­riage was on the verge of col­laps­ing, he says, “There was just this one mo­ment when both of us re­alised that we needed each other. It was one split sec­ond, and things just be­came nor­mal. I think it is our love for Tanuj (their son, ac­tor Tanuj Vir­wani) that made a big dif­fer­ence. He has just be­gun his ca­reer and we want to be there for him.”
