Mumbai: Actor Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jesia have announced they are parting ways after nearly 20 years of marriage. The former couple announced their separation via a joint statement.
“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,” the duo said in a joint statement.
Arjun Rampal, 45, and Mehr Jesia, 47, married in 1998 and have two daughters together — Mahikaa, 16, and Myra, 13. Buzz about their split had begun last year when a report in Filmfare claimed that the couple had been living separately for months. Several media reports had even claimed that the two filed for a divorce after they were spotted at a Bandra court.
Rampal, however, had rubbished reports at the time, tweeting, “The truth about Bandra court?The couple were old friend Marc Robbinson and Wallucha. Oops they got their facts all wrong again.
