Television actor Pankit Thakker and wife Praachi have ended their 17-year-long marriage.
The couple has a young son.
The two have been living separately for the past two years now and their marriage hit a rough patch in 2015.
According to reports, the separation was mutual and the two are co-parenting their young son.
Pankit confirmed the news to a leading newspaper, saying: "Yes, the news is true. We have been living separately since last 2 years. I don't want to get into the details as to why we are not together, all I can say is that we have mutually separated. Right now our son is our priority and we don't want to harm him in any way."
Pankit was last seen on the show Bahu Hamari Rajni Kant and Praachi was conspicuous by her absence at all the events of his show.
Pankit started his TV career with Ekta Kapoor’s hit show Kabhii Sautan Kabhii Sahelii in 2001 and has been a part of several popular TV shows since then.
The news of this separation comes just a day after we heard the shocking news about trouble in Mandana Karimi’s marriage. The Iranian actress filed a domestic violence case against husband Gaurav Gupta just a few months after tying the knot in a grand ceremony.
Earlier today, we also told you that Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya and husband Ashwin Ramkumar are officially divorced.
And now another one has bit the dust!
