Actor Pankit Thakker who is known for his role of Chetan Rawal in the TV show ‘Aapki Nazron Ne Samjha’ is planning to file for divorce from his wife, actress Prachi Thakker. The couple who got married in September 2000 has separated for the last five years.
In an interview with BT, Pankit talks about it and says, “I am waiting for the pandemic to end so that I can file for divorce. We have been living separately since 2015 and now both of us find ourselves at a better place and in happy state in life. We still respect each other and things are very clear between us. We have mutually decided to stay responsible towards our son. And I am fine with him staying with his mother. I lost my mom when I was quite young and I understand how important a mom is in a kid’s life. We are filing our divorce with mutual consent.”
Talking about his wife Prachi who is known for her roles in popular TV series like ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’, ‘Sethji’ and ‘Havan’, he says, “Prachi is beautiful and talented. I always respect for who she is. But at times things are not in our hands. We tried our best to be together but we failed and have eventually found peace in living separately. I married her after falling for her and going against my family as she eight years elder to me and I was just 21 at that time. I was at peak of my career and believed that was a right time god is blessing me with everything I wished for.”
He fondly remembers the time he met Prachi for the first time. “I still remember meeting her for the first time at a dance club in Bandra, Mumbai where she was celebrating her birthday. She came to me so gracefully and made me dance with her. I want to move ahead in life with all positive and beautiful memories and also wish her all the success in life. I’ll be always standing for her whenever she requires me.”
