Farhan Akhtar parties with ex-wife Adhuna Bhabani


Malaika Arora-Arbaaz Khan, Hrithik Roshan-Suzanne Khan are not the only two ex-couples who maintained cordial relationship post separation. Another couple, who deserves special mention for sharing a great rapport post split is Farhan Akhtar and his ex-wife Adhuna Bhabani.

Farhan and Adhuna shocked their fans when they declared separation last year. The estranged couple has filed for divorce but it is yet to be official.

Post split, Farhan and Adhuna were spotted together at the wrap up party of ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ and now again they are seen together under one roof at the party hosted by Amrita Arora Ladak and her husband Shakeel Ladak at the terrace. Farhan and Adhuna were among others who were invited.

Says a source, “Adhuna joined the party a while after Farhan. Soon after entering she began hugging her friends and embraced Farhan too. In fact, they spoke for a bit before she moved on. Adhuna stayed at the party for an hour and left.”

In November last year, the couple had their first counselling session with the Family Court’s judge.

After 16 years of blissful marriage, Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani called off their relationship.

Post separation, the couple issued a joint statement, stating mutually calling off their marriage and declaring that their responsibility as a parents will remain the same. The couple was blessed with two children, Shakya and Akira.

The joint statement 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 official statement read.

Adhuna and Farhan’s love story began on the set of ‘Dil Chahata Hai’. Adhuna started her career  as a hair stylist from this very film.

After three years of courtship, the couple entered into wedlock in 2000. Even though Adhuna is six years older than Farhan, age difference was never an issue between them. What caused the rift is still not known.

Apart from being a husband and a wife, Farhan and Adhuna also bonded over work. Adhuna like a true partner involved in all the creative decisions of Farhan.
