Juhi Babbar is formally divorced
Bejoy and Juhi are now formally divorced
Enough: Juhi Babbar
Raj and Nadira Babbar's daughter Juhi Babbar has divorced her filmmaker husband Bejoy Nambiar. The case was on for the past several months. The final hearing took place last week.
The couple long-time sweethearts tied the knot on June 27, 2007. A source close to Juhi reveals, "After winning the TV show, Gateway To Hollywood, Bejoy had bagged an internship with Hollywood producer Ashok Amritraj.
The internship went on for over a year. Ultimately, it was distance that spelled doom for this relationship. Especially, because it was so soon after they got hitched.
Juhi tried talking to him, but it was an important career move, and he wasn't ready to give up mid-way." Bejoy is currently the line producer for Mani Ratnam's Raavan.
A source reveals, "They had barely returned from the honeymoon, when Bejoy went to Kerala to shoot a film for Ashok Amritraj's Gateway contest. He then left for Hollywood for further work, and that's when the couple actually drifted apart."
Barely three months into her marriage, a lonely Juhi immersed herself in mother Nadira's Ekjute theatre troupe and directed a play for CRY (Child Rights and You).
She also did some acting work. At the time, Juhi had said, "Bejoy is very supportive and he himself is busy with his short films and thus I am also carrying on with something I always believed in."
The source continues, "Even after he returned from US, things didn't improve. For Bejoy, work was a priority. He wanted to establish his career.
This didn't go well down with the strong-headed Juhi, who wanted him to work on their marriage. She decided to call it quits. Juhi now stays with her parents."
Bejoy, who was in Orchha for Mani Ratnam's Raavan, took a ten-day break to come down to Mumbai for the court hearings.
Juhi will be debuting on television and will be seen in Red Chillies' TV production Ghar Ki Baat Hai.
On being asked to comment on her divorce, Juhi says, "I'd really not want to discuss personal stuff at this point. There's too much happening on the work front. Why don't we talk about that?"
