Makdee actor Shweta Basu Prasad has filed for divorce from her filmmaker husband Rohit Mittal after announcing separation in December. The actress has now finally opened up on her relationship with Rohit post separation. In an interview with Spotboye, she said, ''Yes, we have filed for a legal separation. Rohit and I are perfectly cordial and friendly. As I had mentioned in my post it was a mutual decision. He has always been very supportive of my acting career and I am his fan, he is a wonderful filmmaker and I hope we work together someday. We had 5 years of a very loving, healthy and loyal relationship, we just decided to end the marriage and remain, friends, that’s it."
The actress also spoke about falling in love again. ''Of course I am not closed to the idea of falling in love again but right now my only focus is my career and my work. Love happens organically great, if it doesn’t happen then no problem. Not looking for it."
Announcing the separation on Instagram, Shweta had written: “Hi everyone, Rohit Mittal and I have mutually decided to part our ways and end our marriage. After months of contemplation, we arrived at this decision few months ago in each other’s best interest, as individuals. Not every book is supposed to be read cover to cover, that doesn’t mean the book is bad, or one can’t read, some things are just best left unfinished. Thank you Rohit for the irreplaceable memories and always inspiring me. Have a great life ahead, forever your cheerleader.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Shweta will be reportedly seen in Sudhir Mishra’s film for Netflix opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui called Serious Men. She also has a film with Divyenndu Sharma titled Shukranu, set in the 1970s during the Emergency. These are among her five projects releasing this year.
