After Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, here’s another Bollywood couple Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani who are going separate ways after 15 years of marriage. Yes, the same couple whose marriage seemed like a marriage made in heaven!
Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani – A Love Story
The two first met in 2001 on the sets of Farhan Akhtar’s directorial debut film ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ starring Aamir Khan, Akshay Khanna and Saif Ali Khan. Next, they became friends and soon their friendship blossomed into love. She was 6 years older to him but that didn’t stop them from getting married.
Interestingly, Adhuna has been the stylist for almost all of Farhan Akhtar’s films. From Aamir Khan’s look in Dil Chahta to Hrithik and Preity Zinta’s look in Lakshya, the credit entirely goes to Adhuna. No wonder, the two have been extremely appreciative of each other. This is the reason why, in their 15 years of married life, they were never characterized as a Bollywood actor and his star wife. In fact, the couple was often seen as the easy breezy twosome in Bollywood parties – All thanks to Adhuna’s individualistic sartorial statement
The Dent in the Relationship
When rumours spread about a dent in Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani’s relationship, friends, family and fans felt that it was just a passing phase. After all, both of them are matured and knew what is best for them. While, we thought everything would settle down, much to our surprise we got a joint statement from the couple declaring their separation officially.
Here’s what the statement 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.”
Is There A Third Party Involved in the Separation of Adhuna and Farhan Akhtar?
Though the couple has mentioned about the “growing apart” story publicly, insiders reveal another story. Well, according to an insider, it seems that a third party was involved in putting the last nail in their relationship. The source mentioned how Farhan, who was facing marriage woes found solace in a young actress who is also one of the most sought after actress in Bollywood right now.
Stories of Farhan Akhtar and his new friend during an extended shoot reached Adhuna’s ears. This new bound relationship infuriated Adhuna so much that she finally decided to end the relationship altogether. Another rumor suggests that Farhan Akhtar is zealously involved with a talented young actress who is popular for her fashion quotient and also for her quirky choice of Bollywood films.
Farhan Akhtar has always maintained the image of a family man ever since we know him. While rumors of Farhan’s affairs are doing the rounds, we wonder, what is the real reason that prompted this stable couple to end their marriage of 15 years?
