Amit Tandon has confirmed that his marriage with wife Ruby Tandon is going through a rough patch but he is focusing on not letting all this affect their seven-year-old daughter Jiyana.

The couple, who met on a social media platform, has been married for 10 years, but are now staying separately.

“I am not going to comment on anything right now. All I can say is that I have a young daughter and I want to make sure that she is taken care of. I don’t want her to be affected negatively. Whatever is happening in our life is now very personal. She [Jiyana] is my priority and I don’t want her to suffer, “ says Amit.

According to reports, the reason behind separation is Amit having an extra marital affair. However, denying these reports, Amit says that he and Ruby developed compatibility issues.

“Whatever is being reported about infidelity issues, is absolutely wrong. We have been together for a while and it’s been 10 years of marriage. Issues started to arise some time back, and there were more of compatibility differences,” says the actor.

Amit, who played the role of Abhimanyu Modi in the show Dill Mill Gayye and also made it to the final round of singing reality show Indian Idol season one, says he and Ruby are trying hard to reach a level of understanding, which would benefit their daughter.

“We are both slowly and steadily trying to get to a place where we can be there for each other and for our child, in the best way possible. I think that is what two mature adults need to do. A lot of stuff is going around that Ruby has done this or that. I will not say that there is no truth in this, but I don’t want to divulge too much because at the end of the day, our seven-year-old child will be affected by this most and she is my biggest priority,” adds Amit.
