Arjun Rampal, Mehr Jessia announce separation after 20 years of marriage


After 20 years of blissful married life, Bollywood couple Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jessia went separate paths. The couple shocked their fans when they announced that they have parted ways mutually.

Arjun and Mehr tied the knot in 1998 and have two teen daughters - Mahikaa (16) and Myra (13).

“After a 20-year-long beautiful journey filled with love and beautiful memories, we would like to share, that all journeys have different paths. We feel that it is time for us to move on to different destinations henceforth.

We have always been solid when it has come to us, we will continue to be solid for each other and our loved ones, as we embark upon a new journey.

Both of us being extremely private people feel strange to be making this statement, but such are the circumstances of our lives. Where the truth can get distorted and lost.

We are a family, our love for each other is forever intact and we shall always be there for one another and most importantly, for our children Mahikaa and Myra. We would therefore appreciate our privacy through this time. Thank all for their support. Relationships can end, but love lives on.

We won’t be commenting on this any further,” reads a statement given by the duo to Bombay Times.

The couple has not yet confirmed about filing divorce. 

For a long time, reports about their troubled marriage was doing the rounds on net but the couple never admitted in public. When Hrithik Roshan and Suzanne Khan were separated, Arjun Rampal was blamed for their split. It was then said that Arjun and Suzanne were in a relationship and so Hrithik-Suzanne parted ways. However, Suzanne and Arjun both refuted the rumour.
