The now-former couple released a joint statement
“We began a planned separation some time ago, and now feel comfortable to formalize this arrangement, of living separately yet sharing our lives the way an extended family does,” the statement read.
Khan, 56, and Rao, 47, first met on the sets of the actor’s 2001 blockbuster movie Lagaan. The two got married in 2005. They welcomed their son Azad Rao Khan in December 2011.
