I still be­lieve in the in­sti­tu­tion of mar­riage: Ran­vir Shorey

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

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)
