This morning, we
woke up to the speculations of Kiran Karmarkar and Rinku Dhawan’s marriage
having hit a rocky patch.
The couple has been together for 15 years and are parents to a teenage son. Confirming the news, Rinku told SpotboyE.com, “Yes, Kiran and I are no longer together. However, I have not yet decided whether I will file for divorce or not.”
The actress revealed that she and Kiran have been living apart for 12-15 months, however refused to elaborate on what led to the split.

When contacted, Kiran too admitted to the separation, but when asked what led the couple to take the drastic step, he simply said, “Zindagi hai ho jaata hai. I am a low profile person and stay away from parties. So why would I want to discuss what led Rinku and me to part ways?”
Rinku and Kiran had first met on the sets of Ekta Kapoor’s popular soap, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, in which they played siblings. Soon friendship blossomed into love and the two tied the knot in 2002.
On the professional front, Kiran was last seen in the show Tamanna and Dhhai Kilo Prem. Rinku, on the other hand, featured in Yeh Vaada Raha.
The actress suddenly quit the show a year ago and made way for sister Ashita Dhawan Gulabani.
