Sohail Khan, wife Seema file for divorce after 24 years
After 24 years of marriage, actor-producer Sohail Khan and fashion designer Seema Khan reportedly filed for divorce on Friday. The duo is yet to officially announce the news. Apparently, the two were spotted outside a family court in Mumbai, after which they left in separate vehicles, as per ETimes. The report also added that the two have decided to call it off amicably.
"Sohail Khan and Seema Sachdev were present in the court today. They have filed for a divorce. Both were friendly toward each other," a source from the court told ETimes. The couple was reportedly present on the fourth floor of the court premises where they appeared in front of Judge Maqdoom. The judge is expected to complete the verification procedure of their divorce soon.
The couple got married back in 1998 and have two children, Nirvaan and Yohan. Rumors of their rocky marriage and a potential divorce were always in the air though. They were seen living apart on the show The Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives. The kids would shuttle between the houses and the show too supported the rumors of them not living together.
"It's just that sometimes when you grow older, your relationships meander and go into different directions," Khan (whose maiden surname is Sachdev) had revealed on the show. "I make no apologies about it because we're happy and my kids are happy. Sohail and I are not [in] a conventional marriage but we are a family." To them, she said, their kids mattered the most.
This isn't the first time that one of the Khan brothers has filed for a divorce. Before Khan and Sachdev, his older brother Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora went the same path in 2017. Khan and Arora are co-parenting their son Arhaan, who's currently abroad to pursue higher studies. As for the couple in question, they will also reportedly continue to co-parent their children.
