Shubhangi, who plays Angoori Bhabhi in the TV show Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai!, confirmed, “It’s been almost a year since we are not living together. Piyush and I tried our best to save our marriage. Mutual respect, companionship, trust, and friendship are the foundation of a strong marriage.”
Shubhangi said, “However, we eventually realised that we couldn’t resolve our differences and decided to give each other space and concentrate on our individual lives and careers.”
Arriving at this decision wasn’t easy for the actress. She said, “It’s still difficult. My family is my top priority, and all of us want our families around us. But some damages are beyond repair. When a relationship of so many years breaks, it’s bound to affect you mentally and emotionally. I was also affected, but we had to take this step, and I have come to terms with it. Mental stability is paramount. I have always believed that adversities teach you a lesson.”
The estranged couple remains cordial for their 18-year-old daughter, Ashi’s sake. “She deserved love from both her mother and father. Piyush comes on Sundays to meet her. I don’t want her to be deprived of her father’s love,” said Shubhangi, who began her TV career in 2006 with Kasautii Zindagii Kay, and has featured in shows like Kasturi and Chidiya Ghar.
