In May this year, Mirror broke the story of Konkona Sen Sharma and Ranveer Shorey’s two-year-old marriage hitting a rough patch. We had hoped, like most couples they would find it in their hearts to settle their differences. Especially with a baby in their midst.
Unfortunately, it seems, the fissures may have run too deep. Sources close to the couple have revealed that the two are considering the legal route to terminate their marriage over “irreconcilable differences.”
It was in May that Konkona and Ranveer raised eyebrows when they arrived for a film screening separately, sat far apart in the auditorium throughout the show, and did not even exchange a word while leaving.
At that time, despite our repeated attempts, Konkona maintained a dignified silence, while Ranveer snapped: “We are not conjoined twins!” It has been four months since the episode, and Konkona is still silent. Ranveer, meanwhile, is unavailable.
Industry sources close to the talented couple say that the marriage is beyond repairs. “Konkona has even told a few of her close friends that she wants to file for divorce. She has told them that she has tried her best to reconcile with Ranveer but things don’t seem to be working out between them, and she is not to take it beyond a certain limit. Seems, the two are as different as chalk and cheese, and you get to know these things only after you start living under the same roof.”
The couple had bought a swank apartment in Malad a few days before their marriage. Buzz in the complex seems to suggest they may have demarcated their respective spaces and are leading separate lives.
Konkona and Ranveer married in 2010 in a private ceremony after dating for many years. It may be recalled that they had postponed their wedding on at least more than one occasion.
“Ranveer is not an easy guy to live with. And Konkona tried her best to make the relationship work,” says a friend, adding, “In fact, she has still not given up hope completely.“
