Ranvir is very private when it comes to her family life

Ranvir revealed that she kept the details of her separation to herself in order to protect her son, saying: "I keep my private life private, mainly to protect Tushaan."

Ranvir went on: "It’s important that he learns things about my decisions from me and not from mums talking at the school gates. I think it comes down to how you feel about your own story."

Ranvir and Ranjeet share one child: a son, Tushaan, who was born in 2012.

The star has spoken movingly about being a single mother, recently telling Woman and Home magazine: "It’s hard work being a working single parent. I struggle with an enormous amount of guilt with my son and not being there when he goes to school.

"We’re very attached to one another because it’s just me and him. I do get quite tearful sometimes and I worry he’s going to hate me when he grows up because I was never there."
