Pulkit Samrat attacks journalist outside Bandra court


Actor Pulkit Samrat’s wife Shweta Rohira filed for divorce after living seperately with the actor for a long time. She has finally filed for divorce. On Monday, the estranged couple reached Bandra family court to file for divorce. After filing divorce, when the ‘Sanam Re’ actor stepped out of the court, he got into a scruffle with the photo journalist Santosh Nagarkar, who was present at the venue to click pictures.

Nagarkar tells hitlist, "Pulkit and Shweta arrived together at around 1 pm. They were inside the court for over three hours. When they left, Pulkit attempted to make a run to avoid the cameras. When we chased him, he threatened us and grabbed me by my collar. He was accompanied by his security guards and lawyer, who also punched us."

When Pulkit was asked about the incident, he reasoned, "The photographer pushed my uncle and me and was recording it. I requested him to let me pass, but he refused to give way."

Shweta, who had made an exit before the brawl, said, "Within seconds of leaving, many people called to tell me what had happened. Thank God, I had left. When you get into this field, your life is no more your own. They clicked my snapshots too, I didn't stop them."

Talking about her divorce, she adds, "I was karmically divorced long ago. Going to court was a technical exercise, only for the paperwork. We are adults, we took a decision, our lives have changed. I have put a full stop to one chapter of my life. I want to begin anew"

Pulkit Samrat and Shweta Rohira’s married life hit the rough patch just one year after their got hitched. They fought over various issues and the most vital reason for their separation is Pulkit’s co-star and actress Yami Gautam.

Shweta held Yami responsible for her seperation with Pulkit. She even tagged Yami a home-breaker.

In an exclusive interview with Mid-Day in 2016, Shweta gets candid about her separation with Pulkit. Blaming Yami, she said, “Yes, Yami broke my marriage. I have finally come out of my illusion; so many people cannot lie. Everything was fine between us until one person came in between”.

Shweta revealed how Yami came closer to them, “She used to stay in the same building as my mother in Andheri. Pulkit and I used to spend a lot of time at my mom's place. She used to come over and play with my dog. But for me, she does not exist now. At the same time, I want to thank her for showing me Pulkit's true colours”.

Pulkit never said to Shweta what went wrong in their marriage, “I asked him this question several times, but never got an answer. He was always evasive and would say, 'I will talk about it later'”, she replied.

Pulkit and Shweta were living separately for the past one year. Their marriage was going nowhere and finally they have decided to end their wedding officially.
