The world of glamour is strange. When two people break-up, the onlookers assume that one of them cheated on another (not denying that is not a possibility), and when the matter goes up to divorce, it is often assumed that the girl demands huge alimony (might be the case too).
Television actress Vahbiz Dorabjee was stuck in the latter situation. Once she claimed divorce from her husband Vivian D’Sena, the actress was accused of demanding huge alimony from him, and of course, was shamed. The actress has come out with a clarification.
Taking to her Instagram, Vahbiz wrote, “To the people most concerned about my divorce. Have you ever found yourself at a juncture and said WHY and more so WHY ME? Have you gone through the darkest of days and asked why did this happen to me? And then imagine if your integrity, womanhood, life, choices and everything you do is questioned. And making it all the much worse is the questions raised aren’t coming only from people close to you but more so from people who you don’t know and aren’t even a part of your life. And then you are told ‘Oh dear’ that is the price you pay for ‘being a celebrity!!!’ And oh yes you should get used to this kind of character assassination! I choose to say NOOO, MY LIFE IS NOT A CIRCUS! Every celebrity is a human being first! I am a daughter, a sister and a friend… and a person with a heart, emotions, a mind, and pain…Just because I smile constantly doesn’t mean I am not HURT!”
Vahbiz then went on to write, “It’s very easy to wash your dirty laundry in public, believe me, everyone loves this type of gossip! But I want to question those who have the power of the pen in targeting my divorce, alimony and my life and ask you how are you so sure? Some of you say I have demanded ‘X’ amount of alimony, really? Were you in court to see this happening? Neither of the parties involved in the case has ever mentioned any of the things you speak about….so who are your so-called SOURCES? Why not bring them out in the open rather than having them hide behind closed closets? Who gives you the authority and the right to question legal proceedings without knowing or checking the facts?”
She added”And then some of you say, “She comes from a well off family so how can she ask for alimony?” So marriage isn’t between two people but rather the finances of their families? And guess what? Those who are asking such questions are ‘women’ themselves. Why is our gender bringing itself to its own doom? When a woman takes a stand, she takes it for all the women out there…The fight is for ‘JUSTICE’ what does have to do coming from a rich or poor family? I AM A WOMAN and I am Going to FIGHT FOR MY RIGHTS!!!”
In conclusion, she wrote, I am subsequently than and for all speaking to all the women as expertly as men out there and requesting you everyone to fall! top! I draw my line and say this is all that is and I choose to draw that line not because I am weak or because I am the one at fault but because that’s what my family has taught me from childhood… To Live a life of Dignity, Honesty, Smiles, Laughter, Joy and most importantly Emotions and Love! My silence is not my weakness but in fact, my greatest strength as the woman I have been raised to be… #CelebrateBeingAWoman #SayNoToNegativitiy #StandUpForYourself #FightForJustice #StopItForOnceAndAll”
Vahbiz Dorabjee and Vivian D’Sena met on the sets of ‘Pyaar KI Ye Ek Kahaani’ (a Television show where Vivian played a vampire). They became friends and eventually fell in love. The two even got securely engaged and then married. The couple, who were staying separately for some time, announced their separation a few months back.
