One of the most popular musicians in the country, Vishal Dadlani, will soon be heading for a divorce. Vishal confirmed the news in a statement to MissMalini,” After several years of living separately, Priyali and I are officially filing for divorce. This is the only statement either of us wishes to make, as this is a private and personal matter, and we hope it will be respected as such. Over our time apart, we have become perhaps greater friends than we have ever been before. Both our families are extremely close, to us and to each other, and of course, this will remain so. Our private lives have always been extremely personal to us, so we humbly ask for dignity and privacy in this regard. Thank you.”

Vishal and his wife, Priyali have been married for quite a few years and this news did come as a shock to us. The couple have always been private about their life and we totally understand that they would want their divorce to be a private affair, too. Vishal is known for voicing his opinion and standing up for what he believes in. The musician is very open to posting his political views online and has often landed in a controversy because of that.

The streak of divorces and breakups continues from 2016 to 2017. Arbaaz Khan- Malaika Arora Khan, Farhan Akhtar- Adhuna Akhtar, Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif were one of those couples who headed for a split last year. It seems like 2017 is also going to be the same after all. Vishal has composed and sung for films like Sultan, Befikre, Bajirao Mastani, Fan and so on. The musician has never failed to disappoint us with his music and we hope that the couple get through this smoothly.
