The year 2020 has been one of devastation and sadness. In another disappointing report from the world of entertainment, TV actors Maninee De and Mihir Mishra have separated after being married for 16 long years. The actress confirmed the news to The Times Of India. She told the newspaper, “Marriage, like any other relationship, has its highs and lows. Yes, it’s true that Mihir and I have been living separately for six months. The reasons for our separation are too personal to be divulged. Also, I respect the sacredness and sanctity of our relationship. We gave it our best, but the outcome isn’t in our hands.” She said that many felt that their marriage would not last long but their love and compassion kept them together for 16 years. But she said that it evolved and slowly they drifted apart as people.
Maninee De told the paper, “Many people had given our marriage just three weeks, but it lasted 16 years. It means that we had a lot of love, care and compassion for each other. However, relationships and people evolve with time. In our case, we evolved at different paces and our paths diverged. I have an aesthetic way of looking at life. Maybe, we had a karmic debt and it lived out its course.” It seems Mihir Mishra is now living in Pune with his parents while she is in Mumbai with her daughter, Dianoor. The daughter is 21. She is from her first marriage.
It seems they are yet to figure out if they want a divorce or not. Mihir Mishra is known as Dr Rahul from the popular TV show, Sanjivani. They also took part in Nach Baliye 1. Maninee De is best known as Pari from Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin. In 2006, she played the role of a friend of Priyanka Chopra.
