Ace fashion designer Masaba Gupta and husband Madhu Mantena announced their trial separation last year on August 25th, 2018. Unfortunately, the couple has finally decided to call it quits. After the trial session of almost seven months and 3 years of togetherness, the two have now filed for divorce. The couple who got married in 2015, attended the proceedings of their divorce at Bandra's Family Court, Mumbai. "After much thought and consideration, we have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters. We have decided to move forward separately and get divorced. We are two individuals who respect and care for each other and have made our own choices. We would appreciate if we are given our privacy at this time," read a joint statement from the duo.
A close source present at the court proceedings expressed how the now estranged couple operated themselves in a dignified manner at the court and it's Masaba Gupta who has refrained from exerting her rights for alimony. "In an amicable dissolution of their marriage, both Madhu and Masaba presented a dignified appeal in court. Masaba refrained from exerting her rights for alimony provision", the source said.
It was in 2018 when the couple took to social media and shared the sad news of them parting ways. Masaba shared on Instagram, "With a lot of sadness, Madhu and I have today decided to go on a trial separation in our marriage. Both of us have taken this decision in consultation with professionals and our parents." "The only thing we are ready to say for now is that 'What we both want of life individually and separately is putting unnecessary pressure on the marriage and love that we share. Hence, we would like to take some time off from our marriage to figure out for ourselves what we want out of this life".
The joint statement from the couple went on to read, "We are not strong enough to explain ourselves to even friends who deserve an answer from us.... All we can say to them is to give us time and to give us love when we reach out to you. We now need a lot of it " Right from the time, Masaba and Madhu made their separation public, the two have been cordial to one another and are still friends.
The brilliant designer, Masaba has been growing in her fashion field by expanding her flagship store pan India, producer Madhu is working on huge projects like Ranveer Singh starrer 83', Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30, and the most expensive film being made in India Ramayana.
