Why not just say that we both took a break in the middle but realised we loved each other ? ... bec the other couple - the mrunal one, really tried to run amruta down in those love tasks with "omg! how could you like anyone else after 7 yrs with him" type of reactions
Why speak about such private matters on air ? .. And if ppl say that this is the format of the show- well then he must have mentioned it at the time of selections/ audition/ offer to the producers. Otherwise how would they know and highlight it ?
I think you have a point here.
That could've been an option he could have chosen, but to be honest, I think Himanshoo is an honest person and doesn't understand the art of manipulation..even positive manipulation of a situation like you did mention.He was probably just being purely honest in all the raw forms, because a scandalizing headline which pointed at his wife being involved in an affair with someone else, could have easily been misinterpreted and not trusted for, if he tried to give answers such as them taking a break and the same happening. All of these people are from television, they realize the way the media works and they do realize that most of these news, have some truth in them, because there's never smoke without fire.
TBH honest, if he did put it across as them taking a break, it could've done them no good either, infact it could have only made it worse, because Mrinal had told them, that she'd already known of the news, as it circulated in the Marathi film & tv industry.
There are some people who don't like to judge another or give them a benefit of doubt, but there are always person like Mrinal who woud coldly like to snatch onto a news and exploit it to bring her contemporaries down, like she did in the case of Rashmi and Nandish. I'm not saying the news isn't true, it could've been, but she didn't have any problems on being quick to assume. But when her turn came, she evaded it and quickly threw her ex costar under the bus of being extra possessive of her. So Mrinal knew it & Himanshanoo was probably aware that people around him, could've known of it and there was not point evading it, as that would only confirm a mistake and have more fingers pointing at them. Mrinal could've always again said in the VT, that she knew of it & Himanshoo & Amruta were lying.
Therefore, I appreciate Himanshoo and Amruta for owning their shortcomings, because it's better to talk and clarify of your situations yourself before someone else makes a joke of it. I know people don't need to give clarifications to the ones that don't matter to them, I understand that perspective. But I think, being in the media and a public figure doesn't help, as it'll only make matters worse and us viewers could have assumed worse of them or Amruta as well. He was wise to put it across in the best way possible & handled it humbly and sensitively. I'm sure, him saying, he was no sinless person either was not to garner praises, but to minimize the possible negativity surrounding Amruta at that point and to also give a message to everyone else, that it's not always just one person's fault if the relationship falls apart at some point. Him bringing it out in a way which people really emphathized and respected the two for, sort of brought a safe closure to this issue from his end and not another's, who'd got no business with them.
P.S - Amruta knew what he spoke, was the truth indeed & Himanshoo was just being honest and ofcourse, while being honest also garners respect, but it also gains criticism, as honesty comes with a price.. example, he can be misinterpreted for trying to shame her or garner self praise.
