Actor Arjun Rampal and his wife Mehr Jessia, on Monday, announced their separation thereby ending their 20-year-old marriage. The couple informed about their decision in a statement, which read:
“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.
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.
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. We would therefore appreciate our privacy through this time. Thank all for their support. Relationships can end, but love lives on.
We won’t be commenting on this any further.”
Rampal and Jessia, both former supermodels, got married in 1998 during their modelling days. The couple from their marriage has two daughters – Mahikaa (16) and Myra (13). Rampal, started his acting career in the year 2001 with the film Pyaar Ishq aur Mohabbat and has also acted in popular films like Aankhen (2002), Om Shanti Om (2007), Rock on!!
