farhan akhtar and wife

Eyes stared blankly at the screen when we read about the separation. Our favourite Bollywood couple, Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani Akhtar have decided to part ways. We use to look up to them and talk of relationship goals and now we have none.

They issued a statement through their publicist reading,

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.”


Adhuna, 48 and Farhan, 42, have dated for three years before tying the knot in the year 2000.

The couple has two girls, Shakya and Akira and has been very specific about the media’s speculation regarding their split. Due to which they issued the statement and requested civil behaviour towards it.

Farhan’s maiden venture Dil Chahta Hai also happens to launch Adhuna’s Bollywood career as a stylist and now she successfully runs her salon BBlunt.

We are numb by the thought that these two amazing individuals will no longer be together. Apparently, they grew apart over the years. We wish this never had happened but then all we can do is hope that they see better days ahead.
