Actor-producer Farhan Akhtar and celebrity hairdresser Adhuna Bhabani decided to end their 16-year marriage in January this year. "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," they said in a statement. Farhan, 42, and Adhuna, 49, dated for three years before marrying in 2000. They have two children.
