Bollywood actress Ssmilly Suri who made her acting debut opposite Kunal Kemmu in ‘Kalyug’ in 2005, wasn’t seen much on the big screen after her debut.
In 2014, the actress ties the knot with her Salsa mentor and beau Vineet Bangera but they got separated in 2016 itself and got officially divorced last month.
A month after their divorce, Ssmilly Suri has finally opened up on the same.
Ssmilly Suri opens up on her divorce with Vineet Bangera
While speaking to Bombay Times, she flashbacked it by saying, “Vineet was my Salsa teacher, and it’s easy to fall in love with your mentor, especially in a dance form, which is all about proximity. We connected over our passion for dance and mistook it for love. We realised that our decision was wrong only after marriage and staying under the same roof — our backgrounds and approach towards life was different. I tried my best to make the marriage work but in vain. My family, too, including my brother Mohit (Suri), cousin Emraan (Hashmi), his wife Parveen and my aunt Kumkum Saigal, tried their best to mediate, only to realise that the cracks were too deep. When every attempt failed, they gave me the strength to face those trying times. Vineet left me in December 2016 and never came back. I guess he realised before me that our marriage wasn’t working.”
She further added, “After that day when he left me, I met him directly on the day I acquired the divorce decree. We didn’t speak to each other, but I wish him well. I hope that we bury our differences some day and dance together again. I want to be friends with him now.”
The divorce hasn’t left Ssmilly bitter. She shares, “I still believe in love and would like to tie the knot again. A failed marriage can’t shake my faith in the institution. Today, no relationship comes with a guarantee card. In fact, I am grateful to Vineet for taking me through this journey. During our separation, I developed anxiety issues, had nervous breakdowns and battled weight issues. But today, I feel liberated and am a new person. I just needed to rest my mind and learn to enjoy my own company. Now, I am concentrating on myself.”
