Mahabharat star Nitish Bhardwaj about to get his second divorce 

Actor Nitish Bhardwaj, who is widely known for portraying Lord Krishna in the 80s show 'Mahabharat' recently announced separation from his wife Smita Gate after being married for 12 years. Smita is an IAS officer and she and Nitish are parents to twin daughters. This is Nitish's second divorce and in a recent media interaction he talked about how it is worse than death.

The actor told Bombay Times, "Yes, I filed for a divorce in the Family Court in Mumbai in September 2019. I do not want to get into the reasons why we separated. The matter is in court right now. All I can say is that sometimes divorce can be more painful than death as you live with an amputated core."

However, he showed faith in the system of marriage by saying, "I am a firm believer in the institution, but I have been unlucky. Generally, the reasons for the breakdown of a marriage can be infinite, sometimes it’s because of an uncompromising attitude or lack of compassion or it could be a result of ego and self-centred thinking. But it’s the children who suffer the most when a family breaks down. So, the onus is on the parents to ensure that there’s minimum collateral damage that their children have to go through."

Nitish's last big screen performance was in Sushant Singh Rajput starrer 'Kedarnath'.
