‘It’s the children who suffer the most when a family breaks down’: Nitish Bhardwaj on separation with wife

Mahabharat actor Nitish Bharadwaj has filed for divorce with wife Smita after 12 years of marriage. The couple separated in September 2019, and his former wife, who is an IAS officer, is currently living in Indore with their twin daughters. ‘Divorce can be more painful than death’ sometimes.’ Nitish said in an interview talking about his divorce. He informed that the case has been filed in the Family Court in Mumbai and he does not want to get into the details of his divorce.

“All I can say is that sometimes divorce can be more painful than death as you live with an amputated core,” he added.

“It’s the children who suffer the most when a family breaks down. So, the onus is on the parents to ensure that there’s minimum collateral damage that their children have to go through,” he said.
