We live in a society which still considers 'divorce' as an end of the world. While it is an end of a relationship, it is also the start of a new dawn. No one likes to stay in a marriage that no longer grows them. And when kids are involved, it is better to take the decision early, rather than ruining their life with an unhappy set of parents. Bollywood actor, Farhan Akhtar and his ex-wife, Adhuna Bhabani's divorce in 2017 was a big shock to their fans.

Until now, the actor has maintained a dignified silence when it comes to his divorce and chose to rather dodge the burning question than to answer it. Not just that, Farhan and Adhuna have also maintained a cordial relationship and are co-parenting their daughters, Shakya and Akira.
Recently, in an interview with Pinkvilla, Farhan opened up on how he broke the news of his divorce to his kids. He shared, "Nothing is easy. Anything you tell your child which you think your child doesn't want to hear is never going to be easy. The thing that your child expects you and by you doing it, you will realise that this is what you expect from them. If you can be honest with your child, they are not dumb or stupid. They understand way more than you and I can imagine. They have a sense of energy on how their parents are feeling."

He further added, "As long as you don't lie to them and you feel 'it's okay, I have told them, they can now do whatever', things will come around. Eventually, a child will understand why you have done what you have done. Maybe not at the moment, but you just have to be honest with them and in turn, they will be honest with you."
For those who don't know, Farhan Akhtar is in a relationship with model-turned-actress, Shibani Dandekar. In an interview with the Mid-Day Shibani had talked about her relationship and had said, “I am not secretive, but I don't feel the need to say things out loud. I don't need to make an announcement about who I'm dating. It's up to me to decide when and what I want to share about my personal life and it is up to the audience to decide how they look at it. How much information I want to put out in the public domain is my prerogative.”
On the other hand, Adhuna, who is a celebrity stylist, is rumoured to be dating Nicolo Morea, who is the brother of Bollywood actor, Dino Morea. (Don't Miss: Evelyn Sharma Gets Engaged To Australian Boyfriend, Tushaan Bhindi, Says, It Was A Dream Come True)
