// // // The stage is set for a divorce between actor Om Puri and his journalist wife Nandita Puri. The news was broken by Mumbai Mirror last week, but Puri was in denial.
Speaking for the first time on the sensitive subject, Om says, “I won’t lie to the press. A joint statement quoting me as denying the divorce report had come out in a paper. Let me state that denial was issued on my behalf without my consent. The truth is, Nandita and I are separating. As reported, I had approached a lawyer to get the proceedings going.”Om Puri
But now, Om has decided to postpone the proceedings. “It’s because of my son Ishaan. I want him to come to terms with the new situation in his life. He has to understand that his mother and father are not going to be staying together. At the moment, he seems to be in denial.”
Om said he tried bringing up the sensitive topic with his son. “But Ishaan laughed and ran away. When the article on my divorce appeared in Mumbai Mirror, Ishaan was in school. He immediately got it xeroxed and brought it home for his mother to read. My son is my life. I don’t want him to be scarred by what his parents do. Ishaan is no longer a child. I’m hoping he will understand the situation between Nandita and me very soon. Until then, I’ve moved back home with them.”
