Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan's former sister-in-law and Sussanne Khan's sister, Farah Khan Ali has confirmed her separation from husband DJ Aqeel after 22 years of marriage.
Farah took to Instagram and penned down a heartfelt post for the popular Aqeel stating that they have been “just friends” for the past 9 years.
The couple tied the knot in 1999 and share one son and one daughter, Azaan born on 7 May 2002 and Fizaa born on 2 April 2005.
Farah also maintained that it was a mutual decision and there wasn’t any third person involved.

Sometimes two people grow apart.
Sometimes they outgrow each other. It has been 9 years since my relationship with my husband Aqeel changed its status as a couple to just friends and to term it simply would be to state that we are “Happily Separated”. We will always be best friends to each other and parents to our wonderful children Azaan and Fizaa who love us both equally yet accept that we cannot be a couple any longer. This was a mutual decision we took together involving two adults and there wasn’t any third person involved. The reason we are announcing it publicly now, is so that the ones who know us accept our situation gracefully and always wish well for both of us especially because we hold no animosity of any kind towards one another and will always be there for each other.
Aqeel is and will always be my family as I will be his. We hope that all our well wishers will accept our decision maturely and not judge us for it.
It’s important to be happy and we all, Aqeel and I including our children and families most definitely are. That’s all that matters. Grateful and happy for everything in my life.
Farah, is a celebrity jewellery designer, while Aqeel is a DJ who is best-known for his iconic remixes that ruled the clubs in late 90s and 2000s.
