So, I literally got the word out in the universe. I was at that point 55, when I said I want somebody to get married to. And, that’s how I met Rupali Barua. We got chatting then we met a year back. We discovered something interesting about one another and we thought that we could be walking together as husband and wife. Therefore Rupali and I got married. She is 50 and I am 57, not 60 but age doesn’t matter my friend. Each one of us can be happy. Whatever be our age, right? so, just wanted to let you know, let’s keep moving with respect, how people are living their lives,”

In the video, he also opened up about his previous marriage to Rajoshi Barua, with whom he has a son named Arth. He said in the video, “All of us want to be happy. So, about 22 years back, Piloo and I met and we got married, and it was a great one. We had Arth who is now 22, and he’s working. But, for the last two years, after this beautiful phase, Piloo and I felt that how we saw the future was slightly different from one another. Yes, we tried our best to sort out the differences, but then we discovered that the differences can be sorted out but it would be in a way that one of us will impose on the other and that would take away the happiness. Happiness is all we want, right?” So we both sat down together and talked about it and said that we will do it harmoniously. If we can’t walk together harmoniously, let’s walk separately but remain frank. And, that’s what we did, with grace and a degree of ease, we parted ways”.
