It came as a shock in January 2016 when Bollywood actor-director-singer Farhan Akhtar announced that he and his wife Adhuna plan to go separate ways after 15 years of marriage. Now, almost 18 months after the announcement, a Bandra family court reportedly granted divorce to the former couple on Monday.

Adhuna and Farhan were married for 15 years before they decided to part ways. They have two daughters.

A Mid Day report claimed on Tuesday that principal judge MM Thakare granted the bail to Adhuna and Farhan at aa Bandra family court. “The divorce by mutual consent was allowed… by the family court in Bandra,” Farhan’s lawyer Fazaa Shroff-Garg told the tabloid.

Hairstylist Adhuna Bhabani got the custody of their two daughters Shakya and Akira, while Farhan has access to the kids whenever he wants, the report added.

Hindustan Times could not independently verify the report.
