It’s unfortunate that Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jessia are no longer together. The couple announced their separation through a joint statement this morning saying, “After a 20-year-long beautiful journey filled with love and beautiful memories, we would like to share, that all journeys have different paths. We have always been solid when it has come to us, we will continue to be solid for each other and our loved ones, as we embark upon a new journey. Both of us being extremely private people feel strange to be making this statement, but such are the circumstances of our lives. Where the truth can get distorted and lost.We are a family, our love for each other is forever intact and we shall always be there for one another and most importantly, for our children Mahikaa and Myra. We would, therefore, appreciate our privacy through this time. Thank all for their support. Relationships can end, but love lives on. We won’t be commenting on this any further.” ALSO READ: Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jessia legally part ways: Here’s going back in time to reminisce their good old days
While we respect Arjun and Mehr’s choice to part ways. We can’t help but rewind back to their first interview on Simi Garewal’s show, right after they got married back in 1998. Just how beautiful they were as a couple, how beautifully they used to blush every time they were asked to talk about each other and moreover, they believed so truly, madly and deeply in their relationship.
When Simi asked Arjun how honest he would be in his relationship with Mehr, he had said, “I think any kind of relationship is build up on a level of complete honesty and trust. It’s 100 percent trust. If you are not going to give that kind of treatment to it then it’s no point of calling it a relationship; you call it a lie.” While Mehr too seconded his thoughts and added, “I think in a relationship, how much ever you want to hide, there will come a day when it all comes out. Arjun adds, “You can’t run away from it you know. You can’t run away from the truth and I mean, who are you hiding for?”
If you watch this interview then you would know how Arjun and Mehr were so smitten by each other:
There’s also this point in this interview when Simi quizzed Arjun if Mehr gets insecure considering he’s so popular among women and he said, “If you are getting attention then I think if the person really loves you then they join in with you in getting that (attention). They enjoy it for you. If they don’t then I guess you both are anyway on different wavelengths. You cannot compete in a relationship. In my relationship, I try to make my partner feel as secure as I can because I know insecurity is a really harsh thing and it can not only mess up your heart but your mind as well.”
We hope Mehr and Arjun find peace in happiness, as they go separate ways hereafter.
