Finally, Manju Warrier, who has filed for divorce from her husband actor Dileep, has posted a letter on her Facebook page explaining her stance on the issue.
"I do value my privacy just like you all. The sadness and happiness in my life are my own. Then why am I writing this note? When the issues in our life affect others as well there needs some clarifications. It is needed to clear the misunderstandings about a few who have stood by me", begins Manju.
"Dileepettan and me have decided to end our 16 year old marriage. Whatever the reasons that led to it are merely personal. There have been so many discussions by others on what and who the reasons are. Please respect our privacy. Geethu, Samyuktha, Bhavana, Poornima, Swetha Menon are friends who have always been with me. Now there are allegations made by some that they are responsible for my issues. It is painful for them and to me as well".
"I wish all luck in his personal and professional lives for Dileepettan. Meenutty (the couple's daughter Meenakshi) is more attached to her father. She will be happy and safe with her dad. I don't want to worry her with a tussle about her custody. I am always so near to her."
"I am going to begin everything from the start. Life, savings, everything…"
She concludes her letter with the lines: "You never realize how strong you are, until being strong is the only option you have left…"
