Farhan Akhtar with his wife Adhuna  (277x450)Bollywood has seen umpteen numbers of divorces and break-ups over the decades, but there are only few that take one completely by surprise.

Director-actor-singer Farhan Akhtar has split with his wife Adhuna after being married to her for 15 years.

There were a number of media speculations recently about all not being well between Farhan and Adhuna. The rumours were triggered even further when Adhuna was nowhere to be seen with Farhan during the release of his film ‘Wazir’ and Daboo Ratnani’s calendar launch.

But now, the couple have officially announced the news in a media statement which read: “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.”

Although the couple hasn’t revealed the exact reason for the split, there have been recent media speculations and unconfirmed reports about Farhan being too close to one of his co-stars.
