Ex-couple Farhan Akhtar, Adhuna Bhabani ring in daughter’s birthday


Farhan Akhtar and his legally divorced wife Adhuna Bhabani celebrated their daughter Akira’s birthday together. The ex-couple met over dinner and celebrated daughter’s birthday with close family members and friends.

They arranged an intimate dinner for family and friends at a plush restaurant in Mumbai.

Farhan’s sister Zoya Akhtar and his mother Honey Irani also present at the dinner. Birthday girl Akira and her sister Shakya arrived together with their mom. 

Farhan was dressed in a semi-formal, a grey blazer and pant, with a hat. 

Zoya was clicked while exiting and she smiled for the camera. 

Though separated for two years, Farhan and Adhuna maintained a cordial relationship.

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

Post separation, the couple issued a joint statement, stating mutually calling off their marriage and declaring that their responsibility as 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.

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