Renowned sitarist Anoushka Shankar and filmmaker Joe Wright have decided to separate nearly after 7 years of being married. 

"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," a representative for Wright told in a statement from the couple.

The couple had married at an intimate ceremony in 2010 in front of close friends and family.

In August last year, the musician had celebrated the couple's anniversary with a post that said, "Exactly seven years ago, my wonderful husband asked me to marry him. It was all perfectly romantic until my first-morning sickness symptoms kicked in and I proceeded to vomit for the rest of the day. This photo was taken a few weeks beforehand, on the day we found out we were having a baby."

A few weeks back, Anoushka had put up a single photo of herself and had given a cryptic caption to it. "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 #lyrics #newmusic #latenights."
