TV actor Ankita Bhargava suffered a miscarriage recently. The actor, who is married to Yeh Hai Mohabbatein star Karan Patel, was four months pregnant. The incident happened on Wednesday, a day after she was seen standing strong beside her husband at the Gold Awards.
An actor from Karan’s show shared, “Everyone on the set is disheartened by this unfortunate incident. Karan and Ankita were really happy about the baby but seems like fate had other plans. While Karan is keeping a brave front, he is devastated, and it will take time to overcome this loss. It was their first child and they were really looking forward to embrace parenthood. We hope God gives them all the strength.”
Ankita’s father Abhay Bhargava also spoke to Bombay Times and shared that Ankita is now doing better. The family has chosen not to comment further on the matter.
Later in the day, Karan Patel and Ankita Bhargava’s spokesperson issued a statement. It read, “I would urge all media personnel to please allow Karan and Ankita enough time to deal with the miscarriage. It is a difficult time for them individually and for the families involved. This sudden turn of events happened a few days ago and ever since we have tried to keep it low key only so that we allow them enough time to cope with it. However given the nature of the lives they live, we do understand there will be speculation and concern from many. While we are ever thankful for the love and concern shown, we all agree that it is a tough time for them and coming to terms with it will take a few days! Please consider this as a formal acceptance of the misfortune that has occurred in their lives and thank you in advance for respecting their privacy.”
The actors had recently made an appearance on chat show Juzz Baatt where they talked about embracing parenthood and how it was a befitting reply to all, who questioned their marriage.
