The incredible years, with Farhan and Adhuna.
It's official that Farhan Akhtar and his wife Adhuna are ending their marriage of 16 years.
Reports about trouble brewing between the two were doing the rounds for a while, and they finally put an end to the speculation on January 21.
While this separation has shocked many of us, we look back at their beautiful love story.
Farhan Akhtar first spotted Adhuna Bhabani at a Juhu nightclub in 1997 and instantly fell in love with her. He was working on his directorial debut film Dil Chahta Hai at the time.
Farhan's sister Zoya then introduced the couple.
Adhuna is six years older than Farhan but the age difference was never an issue for them.
After dating for three years, they got married in 2000.
Dil Chahta Hai released in 2001, and it turned out to be lucky for the couple. Not only did Farhan taste success with his directorial debut but it was also Adhuna's first film as a hairstylist.
Since then, the talented hairstylist has been part of all Farhan's films.
The couple have two daughters, Shakya and Akira.
On Adhuna's 40th birthday in March 2007, the B-town hunk gifted his wife a diamond ring because when the couple got married, Farhan couldn't afford to buy a ring for his lady love.
