Sussanne Khan’s sister Farah Khan Ali recently took to her social media to announce her separation from husband DJ Aqeel. On Monday night, Farah posted a selfie with DJ Aqeel, and along with it, penned a long note to announce that she and DJ Aqeel are ‘happily separated’. DJ Aqeel also penned a similar post on his Instagram. In their posts, they wrote that it has been 9 years since their relationship status changed from a couple to just friends.
“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,” wrote Farah. She revealed that it was a mutual decision that they both took together, and no third person was involved.
She added in her note that the two of them hold no animosity of any kind towards each other 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,” wrote Farah.
Farah Khan Ali and DJ Aqeel had tied the knot in February 1999. The couple welcomed their son Azaan in 2002, and their daughter Fizaa in 2005. ALSO READ: Farah Khan Ali Expresses Angst Over Public NOT Believing Late Disha Salian's Father And Spreading False Gossip: 'We Live In A Very SICK Society’
