Actor Arjun Rampal and his wife Mehr Jessica announced their divorce yesterday and the announcement left everyone in shambles. The couple that’s been going strong for two decades, was certainly one of Bollywood’s favourite constants. Making their decision public, the couple issued a joint statement saying “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 hence forth”. They added, “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.
Are we heartbroken? Yes, totally, Arjun and Mehr had the most beautiful love story. Mehr Jesia had married Arjun at the age of 28. The former Miss India started her career in 1980s and won the Femina Miss India in 1986. They met during their modelling days and after dating. Despite Mehr being two years older to Arjun, their love reigned strong and they broke all social stereotypes with a model marriage (pun intended) for 2 whole decades. But hearing the news of their split we can’t help but feel sad.
