After being married for two decades, Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jesia Rampal have mutually decided to go their separate ways, reports Bombay Times. “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,” said the couple in their statement.
“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.”
The couple is probably alluding to the rumours that dogged their marriage a few years ago, with reports emerging that interior designer Sussanne Khan, Hrithik Roshan’s then-wife, was getting close to Arjun Rampal who used to be a close friend of the family. Though neither Arjun Rampal not Mehr Jesia Rampal ever addressed the rumours directly, Sussanne’s subsequent divorce from Roshan did nothing to quell the rumours.
The actor and supermodel have two daughters — Mahikaa, 16, and Myra, 13 — whom they insist will not be affected by this decision. “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. Relationships can end, but love lives on,” they said.
