SpotboyE.com was the first one to inform you about their biggest decision and later confirming the news to the world, Ridhi shared a post about them separating on social media and mentioned about their love and respect for each other.
Also, the two remain to be friends. Ridhi in her post had said, "True love should be transformative; a process that amplifies our capacity to cherish not just one person but all people. It can make us stronger, lift us higher and deepen us as individuals. Only to the extent that we polish ourselves now can we hope to develop wonderful bonds of the heart in the future."
Talking about the show Maryada: Lekin Kab Tak?, it aired on Star Plus in October 2010 and after a run of two years, ended in April 2012. The show centered around the lives of four women from the same family: Priya (Ridhi Dogra), Devyani (Indrani Halder), Uttara( Kamya Punjabi) and Vidya (Vindhya Tiwari). It initially focused on the character of Uttara and the trials she faced in her abusive marriage with her drunkard husband and later revolved around Brahmanand Jakhar (Vishwajeet Pradhan), Uttara's brother-in-law, and Uttara's betrayal to her sister by marrying Brahma.
