As far as relationships are concerned, 2016 has begun on a fairly disastrous note for Bollywood. Less than a week after the news of Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif's break-up became public, we now hear that filmmaker Farhan Akhtar and wife Adhuna too are headed to splitsville. According to a report published in the leading Indian daily Midday, the couple have allegedly announced their separation through an official statement that reads, "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."
The couple tied the knot in 2000, a year before Farhan's debut film Dil Chahta Hai won him unianimous acclaim, making him one of the most promising talents to have come out of Bollywood in the decade. Adhuna, in the meantime, carved a niche for herself as a celebrity hairstylist.
