Actor Arjun Rampal officially announced his separation from wife and model, Mehr Jessia, after 20 years of marriage. The couple have two children, Mahikaa, 16, and Myra, 13.
In the official statement, they emphasised that their primary focus will remain taking care of their children and maintained that while their marriage has ended, their love for each other remains unchanged.
Here is the full 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."
