Pulkit Samrat and his estranged wife Shweta Rohira parted ways on a rather bitter note last year. And things between them have been getting uglier with each passing day. Recently, some reports about Shweta’s miscarriage (which had happened a few years ago) made its way to several dailies. Pulkit spoke about those articles during his recent interview with Hindustan Times.
I was shocked to read news articles about the miscarriage. I was like, “This is such a personal thing for any couple.” It was a tragic time for both of us. To put it out in public is not right. What shook my faith further was the fact that it was about a pious thing like motherhood, and the person, with whom I have spent so many years, would go to the extent of falsifying facts to malign my image and put it out in the public to gain sympathy. I was like, “Ab tak main chup raha hoon (I have been quiet till now), but this is a big blow to the entire issue. The miscarriage happened four years ago; it was tragic for both of us. I wonder, “Itni personal cheez bahar kaise aa gayi (how can such a personal fact become public).” Reading that article truly ended my relationship [with Shweta], because it was ethically unacceptable. I had no option but to dig deep. The moment I got to know that it had come from the ‘horse’s mouth’, and that they had the hospital bills, totally fabricated, totally false evidences, it shook me. There were fabricated stories in the past, but I don’t have any words to react to this.
He further added:
It’s misusing a miscarriage that happened four years ago, when somebody (Yami Gautam) wasn’t even in the picture. I started shooting for Sanam Re four years after that incident. Aap kitna bada jhooth bol loge (How much can you lie)? There’s a limit. You’re saying that we (Yami and Pulkit) took advantage of the miscarriage, since she [Shweta] was advised best rest. That’s such a big lie. All I can say is, this is the point where my relationship ends, because I was never with this person (Shweta). I would never expect someone to stoop to this level.
