No matter whether you are a celebrity or a commoner but when it comes to family matters, things are the same everywhere. Especially when the time comes to tell your children about your troubled marriage, separation, and divorce. Farhan and Adhuna Akhtar were a couple for good fifteen years before they decided to part ways back in 2016. As per Farhan, during that dark phase of his life, he believed that he needed to be honest with his daughters – Shakya and Akira.
During an interaction with Pinkvilla, Farhan shared,
“Nothing is easy. Anything you tell your child that 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.”
He added exceeding his expectations his daughters understand way more than anyone can imagine. They both have a sense of energy, of how their parents are feeling.
He concluded with words,
“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.”
Talking about Farhan’s current life partner, as of now he is in a relationship with Shibani Dandekar and the duo is pretty serious about each other. They attend most of the Bollywood events and parties together.
Talking about work, Farhan is gearing up for The Sky Is Pink’s box office release. The film is slated to hit the theatres on October 11th and it also stars Priyanka Chopra and Zaira Wasim in the lead roles.
