Gone are the days when couples were forced to stay in an unhappy marriage and ruin the peace of the entire family with their constant disagreements. The new modern family scenario is all about ending a marriage on a cordial note to maintain the peace of the entire family, especially when there are kids involved. And a perfect example of it is Bollywood actor, Farhan Akhtar and his ex-wife, Adhuna Bhabani. The ex-couple had parted ways in 2017 and had given a big shock to their fans. However, never have they ever spoken ill about each other in the media. (Recommend Read: Alia Bhatt Nailing Her Look As A Bride Makes Us Wish To See Her Soon As 'Ranbir Kapoor Ki Dulhaniya')
Farhan and Adhuna had gotten married in the year 2000 and after sixteen years of living together, they had filed for divorce on October 19, 2016. They had mutually decided to end their marriage and showed the world that in a relationship, love may fade away but friendship cannot. Currently, Farhan and Adhuna are in their happy spaces as they have found love again and they are happily co-parenting their daughters, Shakya and Akira.
On February 12, 2021, Farhan Akhtar's daughter, Akira Akhtar turned a year older, and his girlfriend, Shibani Dandekar penned a lovely wish for her. Shibani took to her Instagram handle and posted a picture with Akira. Atop it, Shibani wrote, "Happy Bday Kiks Mad love and many hugs @akiraakhtar". Check it out below:
Earlier, in an interview with Pinkvilla, Farhan had opened up on how he had broken the news of his divorce to his kids. He had 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 had 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."
Farhan Akhtar has been in a steady 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.” (Don't Miss: Amitabh Bachchan Remembers His Father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan As He Pens An Excerpt Of 'Madhushala')
