“A decision that is probably harder than the decision of being with somebody, because coming together is celebrated by everyone you love and care about,” Kulhari had said in an Instagram post. “And the decision of not being with somebody brings along pain and hurt to the same people. It’s not easy”.

Mukerji had announced the split through Instagram in September. “Being divorced once before already, felt like I had more at stake the second time round. I had more to prove. So when my second marriage broke down it was really scary," she said.

Mukerji spoke about not sacrificing her life for marriage. “ Divorce means even though you do your best and try your best things sometimes do not work out and that's ok," she added.
