Farhan Akhtar to live in with Kalki Koechlin?
Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, who recently announced separation from wife Adhuna after 16 years, is reportedly dating his Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara co-star Kalki Koechlin, and the two might move in together. According to a source quoted by Mid Day, “They get along well and have been meeting for the last couple of months.”
Ever since the news of his separation from his wife of 16 years emerged, Farhan Akhtar’s personal life has been surrounded by rumours of link-ups with his co-actors.
Farhan, who announced in January his separation from his celebrity hairstylist wife Adhuna Bhabani, with whom he has two daughters — Shakya and Akira — has been linked to his Wazir co-star Aditi Rao Hydari, his Rock On!! 2 actor Shraddha Kapoor and with Kalki Koechlin, with whom he worked in the 2011 film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
Just two years into marriage and Bollywood couple Kalki Koechlin and Anurag Kashyap had drifted apart. Kalki parted ways from 11 years elder Anurag in March 2013, a year later the duo filed for divorce, in October 2014. Earlier this year, Farhan Akhtar too announced his divorce from Adhuna Bhabani, ending their 16 years of married life.
While the two Bollywood actors have parted ways from their partners, it remains to be seen how long their alleged relationship with each other sustains.
Asked why actors end up in the midst of such link-up rumors in the first place, Farhan said: “Well, I really don’t know why the rumors spread like fire and why the rumors have started. I guess people enjoy what they watch on screen and feel the chemistry that is happening on screen… maybe (they) confuse it with what is happening in real life.”
