Himesh Reshammaiya files for divorce from his wife, Komal

In 2016, several Bollywood marriages couldn’t hold up to the institution of marriage. Since the beginning of this year, many long-standing marriages crumbled to the rocks, leading to some Bollywood couples to go through the last step, i.e file for a divorce.

The latest couple to end their long married life is singer Himesh Reshammiya and his wife, Komal. The couple filed for a divorce after 22 years of marriage at the Bandra family court on December 6.


To confirm the news, in a statement to Mid-day, Himesh Reshammaiya said, “Sometimes in life, mutual respect becomes the most important and giving due respect to our relationship, Komal and I have amicably decided to part ways. There is no problem whatsoever with this decision among us and our family as every member respects it. Yet, Komal is and will always remain a part of our family and I will always be a part of her family."

Speaking about their equations post the divorce, Komal said, “Himesh and I completely respect each other and are jointly going ahead with this decision to part ways, but mutual respect will always be there between us as I am a part of his family and will always be, and the same stands for him towards my family.”

On November 30, Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora were spotted outside the family court to attend the first counselling sessions of divorce proceedings. Rumours were doing the rounds that Arjun Kapoor is responsible for their split due to his close relationship with Malaika. But a report filed in DNA quotes Malaika saying that a friendship is always misjudged, “Arjun is a very good friend of mine. But people give a very different meaning to it, which isn’t true.” Arbaaz and Malaika were married for 18 years and has a 14-year-old son, Arhaan.
