Mumbai: Singer-music composer Himesh Reshammiya and his estranged wife Komal, who announced their separation last year in December, are now officially divorced.
They were granted a divorce by Bombay High Court on Wednesday. Himesh and Komal were married for 22 years. They together have a son Swayam. The 43-year-old music composer said that the separation was mutual. “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.
There is no problem whatsoever with this decision amongst us and our family as every member of the family have respected our decision. Komal is and will always remain a part of my family and I will always be a part of her family,” he said.
It was rumoured that Himesh’s alleged involvement with television actress Sonia Kapoor lead to the couple’s separation. However, Komal clarified that Sonia is ‘not responsible’ for it. “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. Compatibility was the reason behind the separation. Sonia is not responsible for this at all. Our son Swayam and our family loves Sonia just like a family member.”
Post-divorce, Himesh and Komal will live in the same building, where the singer stays. Meanwhile, Sonia said, “Himesh’s family is my family and I love them.” Himesh Reshammiya currently features as one of the judges on the singing reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs. His new album Every Night And Day, with Salman Khan’s rumoured girlfriend was recently released. He is best-known for composing music for 2005 film Aashiq Banaya Aapne.
Himesh debuted as an actor with the 2007 film Aap Kaa Surroor. He has also featured in films like Karzzzz, Damadamm!, The Xpose and Kajraare.
