Renowned sitar player Anoushka Shankar has reportedly decided to end her seven-year-old marriage with British director Joe Wright. A representative for the couple has confirmed the separation to PageSix.

PageSix, a website quoted the rep as saying, “I can confirm that Joe Wright and Anoushka Shankar recently ended their marriage. All parties are committed to the welfare and happiness of their two beautiful children and ask that their privacy be respected. No further comments will be made on this matter.”

Shankar is the daughter of Pandit Ravi Shankar and is a well-known musician across the globe. Wright is best known for Darkest Hour.

Almost a week ago, Anoushka posted about her upcoming lyrics. “I said I loved you, and you heard me say, you were not enough...you asked me to hold you tighter, and I heard you say, I was not enough... how could we be enough for each other when we were never enough for ourselves? -new album idea scribblings #lyrics #newmusic #latenights,” she wrote on Instagram. Will her next piece of work be about her own break up?

Anoushka and Joe tied the knot in 2010 in London at a private ceremony. They have two children together. Wright was earlier engaged to Hollywood star Rosamund Pike but their wedding was called off in 2008.
