The relationship that developed during the shooting of DIL CHAHTA HAI turned into a three years of courtship after which Farhan and Adhuna got married. Hairstylist Adhuna is six years older than Farhan but that didn't affected their relationship.
 
In a statement issued through their publicist, the couple announced their decision to separate amicably and mutually.

“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,” read the statement.

Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna have two children named Shakya and Akira.
