Actress Saritha Against Actor Mukesh and his second marriage
10/26/2013 TV News
“I am in Dubai along with my son Shravan Mukesh who is pursuing medicine course here. Myself and actor Mukesh Madhavan got married on 02.09.1988 in Kerala. But it came as a rude shock to me when I came to know from the press and media news that my husband has illegally married Methil Devika day before yesterday in Kerala. Without getting our marriage legally dissolved, my husband has married the said Methil,” says Saritha.
Mukesh and Saritha got married on September 2, 1988.“After marriage, Mukesh did not allow me to act even in decent effective roles in movies due to which I lost many good opportunities. Also Mukesh treated me with cruelty and caused enormous physical and mental agony by his indecent and irresponsible behaviour and was also an alcoholic,” she accuses."This had an adverse impact on our children and thus in 2007 I applied for divorce under Section 13(1) and 13(1-a) of the Hindu Marriage Act before the family court at Chennai seeking dissolution of our marriage and for alimony," Saritha says.
Though Mukesh initially refused to dissolve the marriage, he later decided to move court seeking divorce. A divorce petition on mutual consent was filed before the family court in Chennai in 2009. Saritha alleged that the case couldn't be disposed of as Mukesh failed to turn up even once. Later, due to his consistent absence, the divorce petition was withdrawn by Saritha in 2010. The actress lives in Dubai with her older son, Shravan Mukesh, 24, who is doing his medicine there. The couple who were married in Kerala in 1988, have another son, Tejas Mukesh, 20.
