Popular TV actor couple Aamir Ali and Sanjeeda Shaikh have broken up after nine years of marriage, Indian media reported Thursday. The ‘Nach Baliye’ contestants became a household name after appearing on shows together.

The former couple, who have a daughter together, reportedly broke up some time ago and have now made it official. Custody of their two-year-old daughter Ayra remains with Shaikh. The actress resides in her father’s home after the divorce. The couple have not yet made any official statement about their separation.

A source close to the duo was quoted by the country’s media: “It has been about nine months since the divorce papers arrived. They have evolved in their respective lives. Both are extremely private and therefore did not wish to make an official statement about the divorce. “

Professionally, Ali recently made his streaming debut and directed films like “Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hai” and “Raakh”, in addition to a small role in “I Hate Luv Storys”, while Shaikh has been busy with her professional commitments as well.

The best buddies who became husband and wife are unlikely to officially announce their legal separation. They married in 2012 after a long relationship. They also took part in ‘Nach Baliye 3’ and won the show.
