Shweta Basu Prasad Rahul Mittal

‘Makdee’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ actress Shweta Basu Prasad had tied the knot with her filmmaker boyfriend Rohit Mittal on Dec 13, 2018. The couple tied the knot at a five-star hotel in Pune. Much to everyone’s surprise, the couple called off their wedding in December 2019. Now, we get to know that the two have filed for divorce as well.


Speaking to, Shweta said, “Yes, we have filed for a legal separation. Rohit and I are perfectly cordial and friendly. As I had mentioned in my post it was a mutual decision. He has always been very supportive of my acting career and I am his fan, he is a wonderful filmmaker and I hope we work together someday. We had 5 years of a very loving, healthy and loyal relationship, we just decided to end the marriage and remain, friends, that’s it.

Shweta went on to add, “Of course I am not closed to the idea of falling in love again but right now my only focus is my career and my work. Love happens organically great if it doesn’t happen then no problem. Not looking for it. I do socialise a lot. Yes, I don’t have a PR as I don’t care about getting snapped at airports much. I don’t get the idea of paying to get stalked or lame interviews about my lipstick and bags and why coconut water is good for health.

On parting shots, she even spoke about her career flourishing in a huge way. She said to, “There are 5 projects that are releasing this year! 2020 I have my hands full. There will be ‘Shukranu’ opposite Divyendu Sharmaa, a reliance film set in the 70’s during the emergency. Then there is Sudhir Mishra’s ‘Serious Men’, a Netflix original film with Nawazuddin Siddiqui. 2 web series and one more film that I had shot for more than a year ago called ‘Jamun’ with Raghubeer Yadav. In ‘Jamun’, I play a cross-eyed girl (squint), Raghubir Yadav plays my father who is trying to find me a groom, but because of her condition, she is not getting a suitor. It’s a nice one.

Well, we wish Shweta all the best for the coming year ahead.
