Now we would like to begin a new chapter in our lives – no longer as husband and wife, but as co-parents and family for each other. We began a planned separation some time ago, and now feel comfortable to formalise this arrangement, of living separately yet sharing our lives the way an extended family does. We remain devoted parents to our son Azad, who we will nurture and raise together. We will also continue to work as collaborators on films, Paani Foundation, and other projects that we feel passionate about. ;the statement read. The couple also thanked their  families and friends for their constant support and understanding about this evolution in their relationship and have asked their  well wishers for good wishes and blessings,  and urged to view this divorce not as an end, but as the start of a new journey.
