Actor Manasi Naik has decided to part ways with her husband, boxer Pradeep Kharera, she exclusivel­y tells us. Naik and Kharera unfollowed each other on social media and also deleted pictures of each other, sparking rumours of the impending divorce. “The rumours are true. I have filed for divorce; it is under process currently. I’m extremely emotional right now,” Naik, 35, says.

The Tribhanga (2021) actor admits that she is not coping well with the separation: “Things didn’t work out and it all happened too soon. It’s high time for me to walk out [of my marriage]. I respect him and his family. But, as a woman, I have self-esteem and self-respect, too. That said, I still believe in love, I want to [fall in] love again.”

Naik adds that she wants “to move on and concentrat­e” on her career. “My family, friends and audience are all counting on me, as an artiste. I think it is high time that I concentrat­e on my career,” she ends.
