In an interview with the Bombay Times, Bharadwaj told that he had filed for divorce in Mumbai’s Family Court in 2019. He, however, refused to discuss further the grounds for the divorce saying that sometimes divorce is more painful than death.
The Mahabharat actor expressed his thoughts on the institution of marriage. “I am a firm believer in the institution, but I have been unlucky,” he said.
Bharadwaj said that the children are the ones who suffer the most when a family breaks, saying that it is the responsibility of parents to ensure that their children suffer the least amount of collateral damage.
When asked about whether he was in regular touch with his twin daughters, the actor reserved his comments. “I would like to reserve my comments on whether I am able to meet them or not,” Bharadwaj told Bombay Times.
The Mahabharat actor was previously married to Monisha Patil. He announced his separation from Patil in 2005. The duo are parents to two children, they have a son and a daughter.
