Bollywood love stories don't seem to be inspiring couples anymore because 2014 has witnessed a lot of heartbreaks, while some ended amicably in a dignified manner, other ended with an embarrassing public spat.

She took to her Twitter account to make this aanouncement and she wrote, "To all those who care & especially those that don't my husband Munna & Me have decided to part ways after 11 glorious years of marriage. Our split as some might call it is amicable & we hold each other in the highest esteem for now and forever. The reason I explain Is because we are both part of the public domain. Our friends,well wishers & foes are free to now speculate."
She again tweeted,"Staggered by the love & support displayed by intimate strangers as well as the silence from most of my friends! Love you all!"
