Ranvir and Konkona, who got married in 2010, announced their separation on Twitter in September 2015. “Ranvir and I have mutually decided to separate, but continue to be friends and co-parent our son. Will appreciate your support. Thank you,” she wrote.
In a 2015 interview with Hindustan Times, Konkona said that she shared the news on Twitter as she did not want her personal life to become a topic of gossip. “In the past, I faced a lot of speculative writing about my personal life, and I did not enjoy that. I felt that this (Twitter) was a public forum where I could make a formal announcement,” she said.
Ranvir and Konkona, who starred together in films like Traffic Signal, Mixed Doubles, Aaja Nachle and Gour Hari Dastaan - The Freedom File reportedly tried to give their marriage another chance and even attended marriage counselling but failed to arrive at a middle ground.
At the trailer launch of Titli in 2017, Ranvir said that he blamed himself for his marriage with Konkona ending. “Yes, we have separated mutually. But I still believe in the institution of marriage. I understand because of my recent separation this question is coming up (of belief in marriage). But I don’t think the institution of marriage has anything to do in that. I only blame myself for that (the split),” he was quoted by IANS as saying.
