When parents decide to divorce, it’s the children who suffer the most. Konkona Sen Sharma and Ranvir Shorey tied the knot in 2010 but their relationship couldn’t work. After three years of marriage, they decided to part ways. However, they made sure that their disturbed relationship does not affect their kid’s life. The kind of co-parenting both Konkona and Ranvir are doing deserves appreciation.
While interacting with the media recently, Ranvir Shorey disclosed their co-parenting idea that they have mutually agreed upon. To give sufficient time to their kid, they both take turns to work.
We mutually agreed to take turns working so we didn’t have to leave him alone. My father is too old and my brothers don’t live here so we don’t have much family support in Mumbai and I didn’t want him to grow up with the help.
Ranvir revealed that they take up projects keeping their son’s schedule in mind.
It’s about changing gender roles. Since Haroon’s mom is usually busier than I am, we came up with this idea. It’s not so much about spending a few hours bonding with my son as it’s about child rearing. So, Haroon has two homes now and half the time he’s at my place and the other half with his mom.
The actor says men should break the stereotype. He said,
With women stepping out and taking on new roles, the time has come for men to step out of their stereotypes too. I’m more patient and my cooking has improved too. Now, Haroon likes what I cook more than what he gets at Konkona’s. I cook my specialities for him.
Sharing a little about his relationship with ex-wife Konkona Sen Sharma, Ranvir said,
Things are obviously not hunky dory but we have to be mature about our relationship and make sure it’s not hard on our child. As an adult we can deal with it but he’s still in his formative years.
Don’t you think that the two have taken a commendable step for their kid?
