Estranged TV couple Juhi Parmar and Sachin Shroff are officially divorced now. The couple ended their 9 year old marriage.
It is also reported that Juhi has not demanded any alimony and their daughter, Samairra will be living with her, while Sachin has visitation rights to his daughter. The duo had shocked fans with their separation news last year as they were seen as one of the most loved television couples in the industry.
Well now, in an interview with Spotboye.com, Juhi opened up on her life now as a single parent. She said, “Being a single parent is definitely tough, but the child loves you doubly and that keeps you going. Frankly, I have been a single parent since the last 2 years. Everyday is challenging, but it has been made easy by primarily by my sister, parents and friend Aashka Goradia. They have been pillars of strength in my hard times.”
When she was asked how their daughter is co-oping up with the development, Juhi said, “These are obvious questions that any child would ask in such circumstances, but a large percentage of her questions were only based on ‘Mummy kab aayegi shoot se?’ I guess till a certain point in his/her life, every child is more attached to his/her mother.”
About how her parents helped her taking care of Samairra, Juhi stated, “They were in Jaipur. My Dad worked in Raymonds, got promoted and shifted to Mumbai, later he retired in 2016. After that, he and Mom chose to not return to Jaipur. They changed their lives for me and Samairra. They said, ‘Juhi, you go out to work and we’ll look after your child’. That’s how I started shooting for Shani.”
When the interviewer asked her if she was worried at any given point of time that she might lose the custody of Samairra, she replied, “Not at all. From Day 1, we had decided that Samaria will be with me.” Further talking about Sachin’s detachment from Samairra, Juhi said, “Well, what can I say? I can’t speak on someone else’s behalf. All I want is to see Samairra the first thing in the morning and then hug her tightly at night by my side.”
About her mom and dad’s reaction to her decision of ending her marriage, Juhi quipped, “They never wanted me to sulk or suffer. They only wanted me to be happy (smiles).” Further elaborating if they knew from the starting that things were going downhill between Sachin and her, Juhi stated, “I chose to not tell them. They may have sensed chhota mota problems, but they never gauged that we were having serious issues. Of course nobody is happy when one takes such a major decision, but at the same time I had to decided what is right for my child.”
Juhi and Sachin ties the knot in 2009.
Juhi Parmar became a household name with her super-hit Star Plus show ‘Kumkum: Ek Pyara Sa Bandhan’ where she played the role of an ideal bahu and her chemistry with onscreen husband Chirag aka Hussain was loved by many.
