Ashish and Piloo got a divorce in 2022.
Ashish on his differences with Piloo
In an interview with India Today, Ashish said, "We used to communicate a lot. So, at this point, we discovered the differences we had we were not able to manage. We realized that if we wait some more time, it will lead to fights and then we'll be upset and angry with one another. We had a series of conversations and, of course, before that, we took support and help from professionals. We made a full effort, but we discovered that it was not going to work. We both sat down and chatted about this and took Arth in confidence. Obviously, at this point, I may seem very clinical about it but there was pain because we tried with our hearts out to make it work."
Ashish told Piloo that he wanted to re-marry
He also spoke about telling Piloo that he wanted to get married again, “I was very clear that I didn't want to live alone. I want company and why should anyone come in the way of that happiness which a person can get, that security that one can get when one wants companionship? So at that point itself, I shared with Piloo and told her, even as we were going through a divorce, that I wished to get married. I told Piloo that I wanted to walk my future with someone. She said, ‘You know what? I'm looking at my life differently.’ I said ‘absolutely.’ So, here were two people. After the completion of one chapter, we chose two different parts.”
