The industry is abuzz with talks of a pretty young actress creating havoc in the couple's relationship!
Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani's marriage seemed like a marriage made in heaven. The couple met first in 2001 on the sets of Farhan's directorial debut, Dil Chahta Hai. She was six years older to him but that was of no consequence in their relationship, which blossomed from friendship into marriage. In their 16 years of married life, the two were never the in-your-face Bollywood couple characterized by a superstar actor and his star wife. They both grew as professionals scaling one height after another. At parties, they were the easy breezy twosome while their red carpet appearances where uber stylish ones, thanks to Adhuna's strong individualistic sartorial statements. The two have collaborated for most of Farhan's films and he has been extremely appreciative of Adhuna all through.
While rumours of a rift in their relationship have been doing the rounds since some time, people felt it was just a passing phase. The two were perceived as mature enough to sort out their issues. Today, we got the news that the two have officially separated. The couple have cited that they grew apart over the years. In an official statement, they said: "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."
While the 'growing apart' theory is being publicly mentioned, insiders suggest it was the presence of a third party that put the final death knell in their relationship. The actor, who was battling relationship blues, found solace with a pretty young actress, who is quite sought after by makers in Bollywood at present. Stories of their friendship during an extended shoot reached his wife's ears. It was this dalliance that reportedly infuriated his wife who decided to call it quits. Another rumour that is doing the rounds is that the Bhaag Milkha Bhaag actor is passionately involved with a talented actress, who is known for her fashion quotient and quirky choice of films. Farhan, who is quite a charmer has maintained the image of a family man throughout. While rumours of affairs do the rounds after very high-profile separation, we wonder what prompted this stable couple to end their marriage.
