Himesh Reshammiya has been granted divorce from Komal, married to him for over two decades in Mumbai on 7 June, Wednedsay. Calling the decision ‘amicable,’ the music composer and singer explained that the separation has happened on mutual basis. In an official statement released on Wednesday evening, he said:
“Sometimes in life, mutual respect becomes most important and giving due respect to our relationship I and Komal have amicably decided to part ways legally as husband and wife and there is no problem whatsoever with this decision amongst us and our family, as every member of the family have respected our decision.” He added:
“Komal is and will always remain a part of my family. And I will always be a part of her family,” he added. They have a son named Swayam.
The duo has a son named Swayam. The news of their separation first came to light in September 2016 when they had filed for divorce.
Komal, too, in the statement claimed that there’s a mutual respect between them. She said, “There are compatibility issues in our marriage, but we respect each other immensely. Nobody else should be dragged into this matter and nobody else is responsible for this and the reason for our marriage not working is only and only compatibility. Sonia is not responsible for this at all and our son Swayam, and our family loves Sonia just like a family member.”
There are rumours that Himesh has been dating TV actress Saloni for long now and this is one of the reasons behind the separation. However, all such claims have been denied by both Himesh and Komal alike.
