"He had wanted to stab me many times."
If the first season of Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives gave us a glimpse into the starry lives of Maheep Kapoor, Seema Khan, Bhavna Pandey and Neelam Kothari, this season aims to take it a notch higher.
In the latest episode, Maheep revealed that her husband, Sanjay Kapoor cheated on her in the early days of their marriage.
She said that due to Sanjay’s ‘indiscretion’, she walked out of the marriage and left home with her daughter Shanaya Kapoor.
Maheep Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor have been married for 25 years.
They have a daughter named Shanaya and a son named Jahaan.
On the show, Maheep told Seema Sajdeh, “Now you know it, Seema. Initially in my marriage, there was an indiscretion that Sanjay had or whatever.
“I walked out with Shanaya. I stood up for myself but then, I had a newborn baby. Again, as a woman and as a mother, the first priority is my child.
“I owed my daughter this amazing father, which he is. I owed it to myself. And if I look back and if I broke this s**t up, I would have regretted it all my life.
“Because when my kids walk into my home, my husband walks into my home, this is their sanctuary. They need to feel peace. And I feel Sanjay gives that to me also.”
In a confession to a camera, she said, “I wanted my marriage to work. At any cost. And I did it selfishly for me and for my child.
“It was not a compromise at all. It was for me.”
When Seema asked Maheep Kapoor if she has forgiven him for the ‘indiscretion, she said, “What happened (happened) 100 years ago, of course.
“And I want to tell you that for me, I am grateful that we moved (on) Marriage is shades of grey. I know that for him, marriage is lifelong.”
Maheep said in another piece to the camera that they have both forgiven each other for various things in their lives:
“Forgiveness? We have both forgiven each other at many stages in our lives. I have been a royal f**king b**ch. He had wanted to stab me many times.”
“We have grown through this journey and we’ve come out stronger.”
For those unaware, Maheep and Sanjay have been married for more than two decades now. Sanjay Kapoor got married to Maheep back in 1997.
On November 3, 1999, they welcomed their first child, Shanaya Kapoor. Then on May 26, 2005, their second child, Jahaan Kapoor, was born.
