Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jesia are now officially divorced

Bollywood’s once loved couple, Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jesia are now officially on their separate ways after ending their 21 years of marriage. The couple had broken the news of their separation in May 2018. They released a joint statement which read as “After a 20 year long beautiful journey filled with love and beautiful memories, we would like to share, that all journeys have different paths and 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.”

And now after staying apart for a year, the court has granted divorce to Arjun and Mehr by mutual consent. The duo had approached the court on April 30, 2019, and six months later their marriage has been dissolved by Principal judge Shailaja Sawant of Bandra Family Court under the Special Marriage Act. Talking about it, a Bandra family court official told Mumbai Mirror, “After a petition for divorce by mutual consent is filed, their plea is scrutinised, registered and then, the couple is referred to a marriage counsellor to attempt a reconciliation. If that fails, the couple is given six more months to work things out. Six months later, if they are resolute in their decision to part ways and have complied with the terms of divorce mutually agreed to between them, a court draws up a decree of divorce.”

While the exact terms of the divorce are not known, their two daughters Mahikaa and Myra will stay with their mother in their duplex apartment in Bandra. For the unreserved, rumours of trouble in paradise for the former supermodels first made headlines in 2011 but it was only in 2018 that the duo officially announced their separation with Arjun Rampal moving out of their shared apartment into a rented 2BHK flat.

When asked about the finalising of divorce, Arjun told the tabloid, “Why would I want to talk about it? Why is it anyone’s business? I don’t want to talk about it.”
