Music composer turned actor Himesh Reshammiya and his wife Komal have divorced after a marriage of 22 years. The two obtained a divorce from the Bombay High Court.
Komal issued a statement refuting reports that linked Himesh with actor Sonia Kapoor. According to a report in the Indian Express, Komal said they continue to respect each other and it was a joint decision to get divorced.
“I am a part of his family and will always be, and the same is with him towards my family. 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 Swaym and our family loves Sonia just like a family member,” she said.
The actor, who has been tight-lipped about the issue was quick to acknowledge that his ex-wife would always be a part of his family and vice-versa. He said, “Sometimes in life, mutual respect becomes most important and giving due respect to our relationship, Komal and I have amicably decided to part ways legally as husband and wife and there is no problem whatsoever with this decision between us and our family, as every member of the family has respected our decision.”
