Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain is back with its third season, and it’s even better. Well, the credit not only lies in the stellar star cast which includes Mona Singh, Ronit Roy, and Gurdeep Kohli as the leading trio but also in the powerful storyline. Unlike the cliche TV serial bahus, it doesn’t show the woman throwing herself a pity party after getting betrayed by her husband. Instead, she walks out of the marriage, chin up, takes control of her life and comes out even stronger.
In a recent interview with Mid-day, Ronit, who essays a husband who cheats, opened up on what keeps him from letting his kids watch his latest release. The actor who’s father to a 15-year-old son, Aador, and a 12-year-old daughter Agastya, feels his kids are too young to understand or deal with it. He said, “I don’t want to burden their minds with complex subjects like infidelity; they are too young to understand it. So, I will watch the show first, see how it has shaped up, and decide if it is suitable for their
The actor also shot quite a few intimate scenes in the show and he feels responsible for the same. “As an actor, I don’t draw a line. When it comes to shooting intimate scenes, I do them only if they are crucial to the story and shot aesthetically. I am a father and a husband at the end of the day. So, I am responsible when dealing with such scenes (sic).”
Ronit further stresses on how modern-day relationships and marriages are often fractured and fragmented, but people love to live in denial. However, the 54-year-old doesn’t justify the cause as a mid-life crisis. He explains, “I don’t endorse infidelity, but we can’t live in denial either because it happens all around us. Almost everyone indulges in it, and one can’t justify it by terming it a mid-life crisis. I have never understood the term ‘healthy flirting’. What does that even mean? (sic)”
Contrary to his on-screen character, a womanizer, the actor is a believer in monogamy. “In my opinion, if you have a partner, you are not supposed to indulge in that (healthy flirting). However, I know of couples who are living under the same roof for the sake of their kids, but in reality, they lead separate lives (sic).”
The Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain actor describes his family which bears simple values, and his for a successful marriage lies in working on it daily. “Our romance is not a fairy tale; we have our share of disagreements. But partners have to respect each other and find a common ground. She (his wife Neelam Singh) has dedicated 20 years of her life to me, and I have tremendous respect for her (sic),” he concludes.
