Actor Pankit Thakker, wife Praachi split after 17 years of marriage

Television actor Pankit Thakker and his wife Praachi ended their marriage after 17 years of togetherness. The ‘Dill Mill Gayye’ actor Pankit Thakker and his wife Praachi have been living separately for quite a long time.

"Pankit and Praachi's relationship hit a rough patch in 2015 and they had then parted ways, but the separation was mutual and the two are doing their best to secure their son's future," The Times of India quoted a source as saying.

The actor recently confirmed the news to a leading daily: 

"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."

However, wife Praachi Thakker squashes the report of separation. She said, “We have two flats and Pankit keeps shuffling between them, but neither are we separated nor getting divorced. Every couple goes through ups and downs and we are trying our best to smooth out creases from our relationship. Pankit's quote was blown out of proportion and that led to the controversy. People should understand that after being in the industry for so long, we do not need to get down to such cheap publicity. A husband-wife's matter should be left to be dealt with them only.”

Pankit and Praachi’s break up is connected to Vahbiz-Vivian's divorce. It is rumoured that Pankit’s link-up with actor and his business partner Vahbiz is the reason of Vahbiz-Vivian's divorce but Praachi totally defended her husband and said that Pankit has not hand in Vahbiz-Vivian's divorce.

“My husband has no hands in Vahbiz-Vivian's divorce. I know my man and if he had to eye another woman, our marriage wouldn't have lasted 17 years. I do not want to comment on Vahbiz, but it is really disturbing to read such stories. We both are trying to keep these baseless rumours aside and work on our marriage.”

“As parents, we are also working hard and putting all our energies into our careers. That's our focus at the moment. I am positive that we will manage to swim out of our difficult times soon,” she added with a smile.

On the work front, Praachi is currently playing antagonist in ‘Sethji’, while Pankit was last seen in ‘Bahu Humari Rajni Kant’.
