Despite the scores of reasons put out by the media as to the reason for the split, the couple has maintained that it has been 'a matter of growing apart' as reported Mid-Day.

The couple released a statement which read, “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.”

Speculation about the duo's relationship went into overdrive after Adhuna was visibly missing from Farhan's Akhtar last few major outings, including the celebratory party for the actor's latest movie Wazir and Dabboo Ratnani's calendar launch.

Farhan, 42, and Adhuna, 48 were in a relationship for three years before getting married in 2000 and have two children. They first met during the filming of his directorial debut Dil Chahta Hai in 2001 which also marked Adhuna's debut as a Bollywood hairstylist, and her successful inning as a B-Blunt Brand owner.
