Filmmaker Rajiv Rai, son of the famous producer Gulshan Rai, is well known for his films like Mohra, Gupt and Tridev. The latest update on him is that, he is now officially divorced from his wife, yesteryear actress Sonam, after 25 years of their marriage. The official divorce of Rajiv Rai and Sonam came through on July 25 this year.
Speaking about the divorce, Rajiv Rai said that they had decided to go in for a legal separation in June last year and that the petition for divorce by mutual consent was filed on January 21 this year. He added that, they (Sonam and him) neither had a showdown or argument anytime nor any verbal disagreements over the decision. He also added that, while there was no specific reason why things didn’t work out for them, they were trying hard to make their marriage work, but somewhere along the way it fell apart.
Elaborating on his life before the official divorce came through; Rajiv Rai said that, they (Sonam and him) had been living separately since 2001. He added that Sonam and he had been holding on to their marriage for a long time and that they were waiting for their son to turn 18 years of age. Their son, who is 23 (and is working in a production house), has accepted their divorce with a lot of maturity. Rajiv Rai also added that it was totally upto their son to choose whoever he wanted to live with.
