Much to everyone’s surprise, fashion designer Masaba Gupta on August 25 took to social media to announce that she and her husband Madhu Mantena had decided to go on a “trial separation”. Masaba, in an Instagram post, said, “Madhu and I have today decided to go on a trial separation in our marriage”. In a joint statement, the duo further went on to add that they had come to this decision after consulting professionals and their parents.
Masaba's post read, “The only thing we are ready to say right now is, 'what we both want out of life individually and separately is putting unnecessary pressure on the marriage and the love that we share. Hence, we would take time off from each other and our marriage to figure out for ourselves what we want out of this life'." She further went on to add, "We are not strong enough to explain ourselves to even friends who deserve an answer from us.... All we can say to them is to give us time and to give us love when we reach out to you.”
Recent reports suggest that Madhu Mantena is devastated post their separation and has stopped going to work. In addition to projects under the Phantom Films’ banner, Madhu Mantena has also produced films like ‘and 'High Jack', 'Rann' and 'Rakht Charitra' to name a few. Mantena also founded Phantom Films along with Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane and Vikas Bahl which later went on to produce films like 'Udta Punjab', 'Queen', and 'Lootera' to name a few.

Meanwhile, shortly after the couple announced their separation, reports suggested that the reason behind the couple’s troubled marriage was Madhu Mantena’s infidelity. However, Masaba lashed out at reports and said that anything against Madhu’s character won’t be tolerated. Masaba in her tweet said, “Going to address this because of the infidelity bit attached. Or maybe I will address more as it comes,given that I won’t tolerate a single thing being said about Madhu’s character. Not true.”
