After 15 years of marriage, actor Farhan Akhtar and his wife Adhuna are calling it quits, shocking fans across the country.

The couple's relationship had reportedly hit the rocks a while back, according to reports. Speculations started rising when Adhuna, a celebrity hairstylist was not seen with her husband at his promotions of ‘Wazir’.

They have now confirmed their decision to separate with an official media statement. The statement declared that their children remain their priority, and they would like, at this time, to protect them from unwarranted speculation.

The couple has also asked that they be “given the privacy that is required at this time to move forward in a dignified manner.”

Farhan and Adhuna were married in 2000, and have two daughters, Shakya and Akira. The reason for their decision to separate remains unknown.
