In the first break-up of the year, actress Nandita Das and her husband Subodh Maskara have decided to end their seven years of marriage. The critically acclaimed actress confirmed the split in an interview to DNA.

Nandita and Subodh have six-year-old son Vihaan and he is the couple’s top priority, the 46-year-old actress said.

"Yes, it is true. Subodh and I have decided to separate. Thankfully, it is very amicable. Our son is our foremost priority and as parents of a delightful and sensitive child we request that his and our privacy be respected. There's nothing to hide and there's nothing more to be said," Nandita said. She added, “Separation is never easy, more so if you have a child. For us, our son is our main concern and we are committed to ensuring his well-being.”
