Prominent singer-songwriter and composer Tahsan Rahman Khan and his actress wife Rafiath Rashid Mithila have announced their divorce on Thursday.
Tahsan, also an actor and model, confirmed the matter on his verified Facebook page.
Tahsan wrote, ‘It is with heavy hearts that we would like to jointly announce that we are getting divorced. After several months of
trying to reconcile our differences, we have decided that we would rather go separate ways than be in a relationship out of social pressure. We realize that this probably comes as a shock to a lot of you and we wholeheartedly apologize about that.’
Tahsan and Mithila got married in 2006. The couple has a daughter Ayra Tehreem Khan.
‘We have always conducted our relationship with dignity and grace, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner. We hope you will all treat us both with kindness during this difficult phase of our lives,’ wrote Tahsan.
Both Tahsan and Mithia have a huge fan following. They jointly acted in a number of TV plays like Amar Golpey Tumi and Mr and Mrs and others. The couple also released a song Tomar Amar last year.
The news took the social media by storm. The announcement, which was posted on facebook
at 1:30 pm, received nearly 60,000 reactions and 10,000 comments from Tahsan-Mithila fans in just three hours.
The majority of the fans requested the couple to reconsider their decision.
