Karan Singh Grover is all over the place with the promotion of his film Alone (quite literally!). He has been on reality shows, awards functions, events – and just yesterday, we saw him at the Stardust awards with co-star, Bipasha Basu. (BTW, you can check out the 10 best moments from The Stardust Awards 2014 here.) I’m sure it must have been tough for him to hide from the prying eye of the media, which led him to finally speaking in detail about his divorce from Jennifer Winget. Here’s what he had to say in a recent interview with Pinkvilla:
“I’ve been lucky with my first film; have had a chance to work with good people. Once the audience watches it, they will know why I chose this film. At this crucial point, when talk is around my divorce, and personal life, I don’t feel good. Yes I could have spoken my mind, but chose not to; instead I chose to keep silent. I didn’t want to hurt anyone with my words. I choose not to point fingers. It’s two people – whether they are actors or any other professionals – they have joined hands and they have chosen to live it separately. It’s their decision, and their life, and they don’t owe answers to anyone else.”
He also admitted that he is a complete mess when it comes to break-ups and wants to left alone during such times. He further added:
It’s not easy at all! Two people are in love, and have built something special together, but are then parting ways, because otherwise they will just end up destroying everything about themselves. Our generation has grown up witnessing horrible fights between my parents – not my parents specifically. I have seen a lot of couples fight, while growing up. And I would never want my kid to witness that while growing up, parents making each other so unhappy. Why live that life? Once you come to that realization, mutually, you make the difficult decision to separate.
Fair point! I would say it’s a rather dignified way to explain his side of the story.
Well, here’s hoping things get better for KSG in times to come, especially with his film lined up for release on January 16, 2015.
