Shabana Azmi is heartbroken as she witnesses her step-son’s separation.
Shabana Azmi reveals in an exclusive interview with Filmfare, that she and her husband were heartbroken to know that Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna had decided to part ways.
“Our family reacted with a lot of pain because I really love Adhuna and so does the family. What has been a matter of huge relief is that both of them have done it with so much dignity and they continue to enjoy cordial relations with each other,” asserted Azmi.
News of their separation came as a shock to fans because the couple had been married for 16 years. However, the two ended things on cordial terms, wishing the best for each other.
The actress was praised for her daughter-in-law’s contribution to the entertainment industry, “I respect her as a person of integrity and credit her for bringing a revolution in Hindi cinema where hairstyling is concerned. Earlier, there were only two hairstyles. If the hero had a fringe, he was village bumpkin. If he slicked his hair back, he was an urban sophisticate. Adhuna sensitised our actors to how integral hair is in defining a character “she added.
Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna parted ways in January. The couple had issued a joint statement about their separation just a few weeks after Farhan’s last film Wazir came out. The two tied the knot in 2000 after a courtship of three years and have two daughters, Shakya, and Akira.
