I still believe in the institution of marriage: Ranvir Shorey
Actor Ranvir Shorey (below) announced his separation from his wife of five years Konkona Sen Sharma earlier this month, but he says his belief in the institution of marriage is not shaken. Ranvir was responding to questions at an event to launch the trailer of his upcoming film where he spoke about his split. “This is about my recent announcement of separation. Yes, we have separated mutually. But I still believe in the institution of marriage,” he said.
“I understand because of my recent separation this question is coming up (of belief in marriage). But I don’t think the institution of marriage has anything to do with that. I only blame myself for that (the split),” added Ranvir.
The couple, parents to four-year-old son Haroon, took to their respective Twitter accounts to announce their split following the long-drawn-out rumour surrounding the status of their relationship.
In reference to a specific dialogue in the trailer of his film — “Marriage is all about family plan” — he was asked about the concept of an arranged marriage and family planning. To that, he said, “I don’t believe in arranged marriage. My marriage was not arranged. But yes, I believe in family planning.”
I know it’s because of my separation that this question has come up (of belief in marriage)
