Simi Garewal replies after being criticised for sharing Mahesh Bhupathi's video with first wife: ‘So quick to judge’
Simi Garewal recently posted an old video of Lara Dutta's husband Mahesh Bhupathi with his ex wife Shvetha Jaishankar. It did not go well with some people.
Actor Simi Garewal recently posted an old video clip from her popular chat show Rendezvous with Simi Garewal featuring Tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi and his first wife Shvetha Jaishankar. However, a section of social media expressed displeasure with the video as Mahesh and Shvetha are no longer a couple. They parted ways in 2009 after their divorce.

Sharing the video last week, Simi wrote on Instagram, “Mahesh Bhupathi & Shvetha Jaishankar (his first wife). This rendezvous with Mahesh & Shvetha was in the first year of their marriage. Both lovely people who couldn't carry through in the end…”
“A day after Mahesh married Lara Dutta, Shvetha tied the knot with Chennai businessman Raghu Kailas. The journey to find your soul mate is not always easy. But now both couples have found their life partners.. & their happiness,” she added.
Soon after she posted it online, several people criticised Simi. One of them wrote in the comment section, “Shouldn't be putting lows of someone's life out there.. they have long moved on, why to touch those strings?” “Noone finds a perfect partner. They just become too tired to move on and on, so just settle with the last one,” added another. One more also said, “Simigi, you have put your point across them very delicately without tainting anyone’s reputation. I really admire this quality of yours. It’s life, things happen.”
Responding to one of the comments, Simi clarified, “Thank you. I appreciate your post. People are so quick to judge without even reading the entire post! These are real life stories…We gain from learning about human experiences..(with happy endings).”
Mahesh was married to Shvetha Jaishankar who was a model, for seven years. After their divorce, Mahesh married actor Lara Dutta on February 16, 2011. The couple are now blessed with their first child together, daughter Saira Bhupathi who was born on January 20, 2012.
