Just days after Malayalam actor Mukesh's marriage to dancer Methil Devika, his first wife and former actor Saritha has come up with some startling allegations.
According to her the recent marriage of Mukesh is illegal, as they are yet to be granted a divorce.
Mukesh marries dancer Methil Devika
“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.
“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.
She says that though they agreed for a divorce on mutual consent in 2007, Mukesh didn't appear for any court hearings and the petition was withdrawn in 2010.
Saritha says that Mukesh has taken advantage of her absence in India and has in fact committed bigamy by marrying another woman without getting a legal divorce. She is all set to proceed with all possible legal procedures now.
