Naveen Jaihind & Swati Makiwal Announced their Divorce
Swati Maliwal announced her divorce by social media on February 19, 2020. She wrote on Twitter:
“Most painful moment is when your fairytale ends. Mine ended. Me and Naveen have got divorced. Some times best of people can’t stay together. Will always miss him and our life that could have been. Everyday I pray to God to give us and others like us strength to deal with this pain.”
The couple hit the headline in 2018 where Swati Maliwal commented on husband’s controversial remark on women. She said-she sympathises with anger and pain of Naveen but not with his statement. The different opinions could be the reason for their divorce even though there are no comments from Naveed Jaihind’s side on his divorce from Swati Maliwal. We wish them luck and strength for their decision and career.
