The duo tied the knot in 2019, however, separated briefly in 2020 during the pandemic. The couple has a seven-month-old daughter named Ziana.
In her latest TOI interview, Charu, who is a television actor by profession, said that she has given enough chances to her husband and wishes for an amicable divorce now.
Allegations by Charu
Charu told TOI that she sent a notice to Rajeev on June 7 seeking for an amicable divorce. However, he replied with another notice levelling accusations against her. The actress said,
I didn’t want to talk about the problems in our marriage, but I have been forced to talk about it now because Rajeev is spreading lies about me, which is damaging to my reputation. Yes, we have taken the legal route to end the marriage and I initiated the process.
Adding further, Charu said,
There is ‘nothing left’ in their marriage anymore. Everyone knows that we have been having problems in our marriage for the past three years, since the time we tied the knot. But I kept giving him chances.
Earlier, it was for me and then for our daughter, Ziana. Par woh ek chance dete dete teen saal kab nikal gaye mujhe kuch pata nahi chala (But I don’t know how giving yet another chance led to three years of this).
He has trust issues and I can’t take it anymore. I sent him a simple notice asking for an amicable separation, as there is nothing left in our relationship. I want to part ways because I don’t want my daughter to grow up in a toxic and abusive environment. I don’t want her to see people hurling abuses at each other.
Allegations by Rajeev
Charu shared allegations levelled by husband in his notice. She quoted,
He is claiming that he didn’t know about my first marriage! Not only did he know about it, but also appreciated me for moving on from my past and making it on my own in Mumbai. My first marriage happened in February 2007 when I was just 18 and we separated in November 2016 owing to compatibility issues.
Rajeev has accused me of being a bad mother as he doesn’t appreciate me posting Ziana’s pictures on social media. He says nazar lag jaati hai. I am not superstitious like him and don’t want my daughter to be exposed to such a mindset.
Speaking with TOI in another interview about Charu’s 1st marriage, Rajeev had quoted,,
No one knew about it. Practically no one, barring those from her hometown, Bikaner (Rajasthan), knew about her first marriage. It was clearly a secret loop hidden from all of us. So, this came as a shock to me, and it shook me up badly. Three years of marriage and I had no clue. I understand it was her past but she should have at least told me and I would have accepted it with respect.
In one of his Vlogs, Rajeev had mentioned that he was not comfortable with his daughter getting too much social media exposure at a young age. He even said that he did not want to show on camera how much he was missing Ziana ‘for sympathy’.
Rajeev also refuted allegations of being an absentee father. He added that Charu gives him all the importance on their holidays but calls him unavailable as soon as they end. He said,
Also, I think in today’s day and age, it will be foolish of anybody to trust someone blindly. The world is changing, and it only understands the language of money.
