'I still believe in institution of marriage'

Actor Ranvir Shorey announced his separation from his wife of five years Konkona Sen Sharma earlier this month, but he says his belief in the institution of marriage is not shaken.

Shorey was present at an event here to launch the trailer of Titli, and there he spoke about his split. “This is about my recent announcement of separation. Yes, we have separated mutually. But I still believe in the institution of marriage,” he said.

“I understand because of my recent separation this question is coming up (of belief in marriage). But I don't think the institution of marriage has anything to do in that. I only blame myself for that (the split),” added Shorey, who was dating Sen before they settled down, reports IANS. The couple, parents to four-year-old son Haroon, took social media platform Twitter accounts to announce their split following the long-drawn-out rumour surrounding the status of their relationship.In reference to a specific dialogue in the trailer of Titli -- “Marriage is all about family plan” — he was asked about the concept of an arranged marriage.To that, he said: "I don't believe in arrange marriage. My marriage was not arranged. But yes, I believe in family planning.”
