Rati and husband patch up, call off divorce
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.”
