This must be the saddest and the most heartbreaking of all Bollywood break-ups. Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Akhtar’s marriage was known to be rock solid and they could give relationship goals to other who look up to them. But, 15 years down the line, the couple have decided to mutually separate and announced their decision in a statement saying that their children will always remain their top priority.
A report in Bollywood Life suggested that the duo have decided not to indulge in a legal tussle as they don’t want their children to bear the brunt of the tension between the ex-couple. They have already met a few lawyers to ensure a transparent separation without any ill will or bad blood and after due consideration they have finalised their legal consultant to take care of the proceedings.
The article also said that a source told a leading daily that apparently Farhan Akhtar would be paying Adhuna a one-time alimony instead of a monthly allowance. The source told the daily that Adhuna would also be retaining their family home, Vipasana, where she is currently staying with their daughters.
The source added, “She (Adhuna) has told Farhan that she has also contributed to making the home, so she’d like to continue staying there instead of looking out for a new place and setting it up all over again.”
While much as been speculated regarding the reasons for the split, Farhan and Adhuna remain committed to protecting their daughter Shakya and Akira from the public glare and have requested for privacy.
