Bollywood actress Kirti Kulhari has called marriage an ‘overrated’ concept, months after she announced the news of her separation from husband Saahil Sehgal.

In April, the couple had decided to part ways in life after four years of marriage. Kirti also informed that she will not be commenting further on the separation and seized the conversation saying ‘it is what it is.

After almost two months of separation, Kriti has told radio host Siddharth Kannan that she feels marriage is overrated as a concept. “I am not saying love is overrated or companionship is overrated. I am saying marriage, as a concept, is overrated. I can be in love with someone, I can have a beautiful relationship with someone and still choose to not be married to that person,” the actress said.

“This idea of marriage exists in our society. But through the marriage, I realized… I said, ‘What is it about marriage as a concept that we make such a hawa (big deal) out of?” added Kriti.

She further said, “Yes, marriage is important for the social structure and this and that, but I think beyond everything, a marriage needs to happen between two people. Their hearts need to be connected. I am sorry, but it is not about families coming together. It starts and ends with these two people, and that’s how it is for me. So, I can do everything I want to do, be a partner to someone, without the ‘marriage’ word being attached to it.”

In an interview, Kirti also opened up about how her parents took the news of her separation from Saahil Sehgal. She told that her mother wanted her to try to save the marriage, meanwhile her father ‘kind of understood’ her decision.

While announcing her separation from Saahil, Kriti had posted a heartfelt note on Instagram that read, “A simple note to let everyone know that my husband Saahil and I have decided to separate. Not on paper, but in life. A decision that’s probably harder than the decision of ‘being with somebody’, because coming together is celebrated by everyone you love and care about. And the decision of not being with somebody brings along pain and hurt to the same people. It’s not easy. Guess it’s not meant to be easy but IT IS WHAT IT IS.”
