NEW DELHI — Bollywood actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar and his wife Adhuna Akhtar, who were married for 15 years, finally announced their decision to separate on Thursday.

“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 speculations and public glare,” read a joint statement issued by the Akhtars.

“We sincerely request that we are given the privacy that is required at this time to move forward in a dignified manner,” the statement read further.

Farhan, 42, is the son of veteran writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar and his former wife Honey Irani, and Adhuna, who is six years older than Farhan, is a celebrity hairstylist.

They have two daughters named Shakya and Akira.

Farhan’s split with Adhuna comes as yet another end to a real life love story in tinsel town after actor Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan’s split in 2013.
