MUMBAI – Bollywood actor and director Farhan Akhtar and his Adhuna Babani have ended their 16-year marriage.
The two had filed for a divorce in October last year at the Bandra family court, and after divorce counseling in November, they had to wait for a period of six months to figure if they wanted to still go for the divorce or withdraw their plea.
Afer hearing arguments from Farhan and Adhuna, the court has officially granted them a divorce, the Times of India reported.
However the custody of their two children, Shakya and Akira, will remain with Adhuna, a celebrity hairstylist, while Farhan will have full access to their kids at all times.
The duo had announced their separation last year, and were married in 2000, after dating for two years. However, their divorce plea was also ‘mutual’, and both of them were on friendly basis even after they announced the split.
The reason behind their divorce is not confirmed yet.
Farhan is reportedly dating his ‘Rock On 2’ co-star Shraddha Kapoor ever since Farhan split from Adhuna.
However, the ‘Wazir’ actor says it’s unfortunate and bad enough when untrue things are said.
