In an interview to Hindustan Times on Tuesday, Raghu Ram was quoted as saying, "Our relationship has changed over time. Today, we might not be a couple, but we are still the best of friends.The disconnect was bound to happen. The important thing is that we started off as friends, and we realised that if our relationship isn't working, then it is best to stay friends. We have prioritised our friendship over everything else. I am happy about that, and so is she." (Also Read: Raghu Ram and Sugandha Garg to Separate. 'Yes, It is True')
Raghu, 40, revealed that the decision to part ways was mutual and that divorces weren't always acrimonious. "The time we spent apart was too much, and the time we spent together wasn't enough to sustain our connection. It's better to be in each other's lives as friends instead.
It is not something we have taken lightly, and that's why, it hasn't been easy. But since we took the decision, it has been good. Right now, it might seem casual, but it's not. However, I believe that it (the divorce) doesn't always have to be acrimonious," the reality show judge was quoted as saying in the interview.
Suganda had earlier told Indian Express in an interview, "Yes, it is true. We are separating."
The estranged couple will reportedly file for divorce soon.
Raghu has been part of several youth-centric reality shows as a judge. Sugandha has acted in films such as Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (2008) and Tere Bin Laden (2010).
