Maheep Kapoor added that people can have an opinion about her choice to forgive Sanjay but they shouldn’t be mean about it.

Maheep Kapoor made her screen debut with Netflix’s Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives in 2022. Back then, she had revealed on the show that earlier during their marriage, her husband and actor Sanjay Kapoor had cheated on her. However, Maheep chose to look beyond it and wanted to keep her marriage secure for the sake of her children. In a recent interview, she opened up about her decision to reveal this fact and the reaction she received from the audience.

Maheep told Zoom, “I feel people just don’t want to step out of the box and look at that person and try to stand in his shoes and understand. Give everybody a break, everyone is not perfect, everyone is going to f**k up. It’s fine.”

Maheep’s friend and Chunky Panday’s wife Bhavana Pandey, who was also present at the chat, added, “And it’s what she is comfortable with. That’s her choice. Everyone has to do what rocks their boat.” Maheep further said, “You can have an opinion about it but don’t be nasty about it. I also have opinions but I am not nasty about it. The kids need to know you are there, their father is there and that’s it. They need to have that comfort zone and know that this is their safe zone.”

For the unversed, Maheep had told Seema Sajdeh on the show, “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 shit up, I would have regretted it all my life. Because when my kids walk into my home, and my husband walks into my home, this is their sanctuary. They need to feel peace. And I feel Sanjay gives that to me also.”

Sanjay Kapoor is the youngest brother of Boney Kapoor and Anil Kapoor. Maheep and Sanjay got married in 1997. They welcomed their first child, daughter Shanaya Kapoor in 1999. They had a son, Jahaan Kapoor, in 2006. Meanwhile, the third season of Maheep’s show will premiere soon on Netflix and will also feature Ranbir Kapoor’s older sister, Riddhima Kapoor Sahani.
