WEB DESK: Bollywood filmmaker-turned-actor Farhan Akhtar and his wife Adhuna have parted ways after 16 years of marriage, Mid day reported.
The couple hasn’t been spotted together at events recently, and now have released an official statement confirming their separation.
“This is to announce that we, Adhuna and Farhan, have mutually and amicably decided to separate. Our children remain our priority and it is immensely important to us, as responsible parents, that they be protected from unwarranted speculation and public glare. We sincerely request that we are given the privacy that is required at this time to move forward in a dignified manner,” read a statement published by Mid day.
Adhuna was noticeably missing from the celebratory events following the success of Farhan’s latest film Wazir, and also from Dabboo Ratnani’s calendar launch where almost all of Bollywood was present.
Once termed as Bollywood’s most stylish couple,they met in 2000 during the shoot of Dil Chahta Hai, Farhan’s directorial debut which also marked Adhuna’s debut in B-Town as a hairstylist. They got hitched soon after and have two kids.
Even though Adhuna is six years older to Farhan, it never was an issue for the couple who seemed blissfully happy till the stories of their rift started making the rounds and now it is confirmed that they have parted ways forever.
