BOLLYWOOD actor Arjun Rampal and wife Mehr Jesia have called it quits after 20 years of marriage and the couple have made it official about their split in a joint statement.
The couple have asserted in the statement that although their relationship has ended their love will last forever and they will always remain a family and parents to their daughters Mahikaa and Myra.
“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.”
This news hasn’t come as a surprise for many as for the past few years, rumors of marital disturbance was making rounds for the couple. There were also some reports of frequent link up rumors of Arjun’s with fellow actor Hrithik Roshan’s former wife Suzzane Khan. However, those speculations were rubbished by both the celebrities.
A Filmfare report from last year even claimed that the couple had been living separately for months and had taken a six-month break to ‘re-evaluate’ their relationship.
Arjun and Mehr got married in 1998 and have two daughters together, 16-year-old Mahikaa and 13-year-old Myra 13. Both the celebrities belong to the Indian supermodel lot of the 90s.
