In a shocking twist on TV actress Charu Asopa and Rajeev Sens’ married life, Sushmita Sen’s brother claims she didn’t tell him about her first marriage. There has been a lot of speculation about the couple in recent months and it looks like their married life has been going through a rough patch.
Charu Asopa to the Times of India“I didn’t want to talk about the problems in our marriage, but I was forced to talk about it now because Rajeev is spreading lies about me, which is damaging my reputation. Yes, we went the legal route of ending the marriage and I started the process.”
In response to Rajeev’s allegations, Charu said, “He claims he didn’t know about my first marriage! Not only did he know about it, he also appreciated me for leaving my past behind and starting my own business in Mumbai. My first marriage was in February 2007 when I was just 18 and we separated in November 2016 due to compatibility issues. Rajeev has accused me of being a bad mother as he doesn’t appreciate it when I see Ziana’s pictures in post jaati hai on social media. I’m not as superstitious as he is and I don’t want my daughter to be exposed to that kind of thinking.”
She added: “I stopped working because Rajeev wasn’t particularly interested in it. I was told that if I stopped working for a while, our problems would be solved. But that didn’t happen. I gave Rajeev many chances but now I’m done. He was never available to us. I was mostly alone during my pregnancy. Ek chance dete dete ghada bhar gaya hai, but I have to think of Ziana now. From this point there is no going back, as there is nothing left in this marriage. It hit me hard and took a toll on my health. I really loved him but I realized that he is not the man I loved and it hurts a lot.
Rajeev told the same publication, “Lack of trust and communication, ego conflicts, childish quarrels and much more…” He adds, “Virtually nobody except those from her hometown of Bikaner knew of her first marriage secret being kept from us. Well, that came as a shock to me, and it shook me badly…three years of marriage and I had no idea. I understand it was her past, but she should have at least told me. I would have respected it if she had told me about it before the wedding.”
He added: “Whatever Charu is today, it is due to her mother who has been a strong support system since her difficult days in Mumbai as an actress. I hope sanity prevails and she gives her mother the respect she deserves.”
Rajeev, brother of actress Sushmita Sen, and Charu, a TV actress, were married in June 2019 in a lavish wedding ceremony in Goa. Charu has appeared in many TV shows including Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev, Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo, Love by Chance, Baal Veer, Karn Sangini and Mere Angne Mein among various other prominent projects on TV.
Charu and Rajeev Sen were blessed with a baby girl on November 1st, 2021.
