Popular sitarist and daughter of legendary Pandit Ravi Shankar, Anoushka Shankar has separated with her husband Joe Wright after seven years of marriage. The couple are parents to two sons, Zubin and Mohan. A representative for the British filmmaker confirmed the separation report.
''I can confirm that Joe Wright and Anoushka Shankar recently ended their marriage. All parties are committed to the welfare and happiness of their two beautiful children and ask that their privacy be respected. No further comments will be made on this matter," the statement read.
Wright is currently hitting the headlines owing to his latest film Darkest Hour, featuring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill. Wright and Anoushka started dating in 2009 and after a year of courtship, the duo tied the knot in 2010 in London. They welcomed their first child in 2011 and their second son in 2015. Wright was earlier engaged to Hollywood actress Rosamund Pike but due to some unknown reasons their wedding was called off in 2008.
Earlier this week, Anoushka's cryptic post on Instagram hinted at her relationship going sour. She wrote, ''I said I loved you, and you heard me say, you were not enough... you asked me to hold you tighter, and I heard you say, I was not enough...how could we be enough for each other, when we were never enough for ourselves? -new album idea scribblings.''
