Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal and his wife Mehr Jesia have mutually decided to end their 20 years long marriage. The duo announced the news, which could be heartbreaking for some fans, in 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,” the statement released by Arun and Mehr read.
Arjun, a former model, tied the knot with long-time girlfriend Mehr Jessia, also a model, in 1998. The couple has two children - Mahikaa and Myra - from their marriage.
The couple stated “circumstances” of their lives the reason behind their separation and requested people to respect their privacy.
“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,” the statement read further.
However, the speculations were rife for some time that not all is good between Arjun and Mehr. It was also reported that Arjun’s alleged relationship with Sussanne Khan, former wife of Hrithik Roshan was harming their beautiful marriage.
It was even said that the increasing closeness between Arjun and Sussanne was the reason behind the latter’s divorce with Hrithik.
