He was married to Asha Singh, who died in 2013, and has four daughters and a son. In April 2014, he announced that he was in a relationship with a television journalist Amrita Rai, who was to divorce her husband in order to marry him. He is a Hindu.
The man is not cheating his partner/wife. He is not denying her existence. He is not stalking or snooping on the journo Amrita Rai.
I have no hesitation in accepting my relationship with Amrita Rai. She and her husband have already filed a mutual consent divorce case.
They are getting married, and it would be perfectly fine if they were not.
Because like Kavita Krishnan tweeted,
‘Affairs are personal business, stalking, snooping, hacking, moral policing are unethical, illegal.’
Also take a look at this tweet.

‘This is a difficult time for me. Amrita and I have been living separately for a long time. We are seeking divorce through mutual consent, this is a legal procedure and takes time. We have separated and Amrita is free to take decisions for her future and I respect her right to do so and I wish her all the best.
I understand that many friends, colleagues, students and well wishers are sad for me. But I know they are standing by my side. I am confident that I will come out of this difficult time and I hope you will respect my privacy. Maybe these are the times when we see who our friends are. Can’t express my gratitude enough.
Those who do not respect women and see them through patriarchal mindset as child bearing machines and commodities, those who do not respect them as individuals – for them this is an opportunity to make cheap personal attacks.
This is the limit of their thinking and politics, can’t expect better from them.’
What makes some people confuse consensual relationships between two uncommitted adults with stalking or cheating, denying or lying? What is it that is found objectionable in this relationship?
The age difference in not our business.
