After three years of marriage, Masaba Gupta separates from Madhu Mantena

It’s unfortunate that designer Masaba Gupta and filmmaker Madhu Mantena’s marriage lasted only three years. The couple in a joint statement announced today that they are on ‘Trial Separation’. The couple got married in June 2015.

Masaba wrote on her social media handle, "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 after consulting professionals and our parents. The only thing we are ready to say right now is, 'what we both want out of life individually and separately is putting unnecessary pressure on the marriage and the love that we share. Hence we would take time off from each other and our marriage to figure out for ourselves what we want out of this life'." In the joint statement, Masaba added that they "still hope to find reconciliation."

"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," Masaba and Madhu Mantena added in their statement.

A source added that Neena Gupta is very depressed as it has happened very sudden and the industry is shocked as well.

Masaba Gupta, daughter of Neena Gupta and West Indian cricket legend Vivian Richards married Madhu Mantena after years of courtship in June 2015 which was followed by a grand reception party.
