Messages Pouring In For Madhu Mantena & Masaba Gupta

Madhu and Masaba married in June 2015. For those who missed the heartfelt message, this is what it read: “To our family, friends, acquaintances. With a lot of sadness, Madhu and I have decided to go on a trial separation in our marriage. Both of us have taken this decision after consulting professionals and our parents. The only thing we are ready to say for now is that “What we both want out of life individually and separately is putting unnecessary pressure on our marriage and love that we share.”

She added, “Hence we would like to take some time off from each other and our marriage to figure out for ourselves what we want out of this life. We also want to say that this is a tough time for us and we want to really protect our privacy at this time. We still hope to find reconciliation in our individual paths and dreams and hence this privacy is important for us for now.”

She continued, “We are not strong enough to explain ourselves to even friends who deserve an answer from us. These friends, we realise are equally invested in our relationship and our individual well being. All we can say to each of them is give us time and give us love when we reach out to you. We now need a lot of it :).”

The statement concluded with, “While we know, given the world and the lives we live in will lead to speculation, rumours & dragging us down into the dirt at this time… We are communicating and encouraging each other to be brave and reminding ourselves the only priority at this time is the well-being and protection of our own selves and our families. Madhu & Masaba.”
