Saritha accuses Mukesh of bigamy
Deeply shocked by her estranged husband, Mukesh marrying popular danseuse, Methil Devika at a registrar’s office in Kochi recently, yesteryear actress Saritha has accused him of bigamy in a statement from Dubai.
Claiming that Mukesh was cruel and had caused her enormous physical and mental agony by his indecent, irresponsible behaviour and drinking, she said she had applied for divorce under section 13(1) and 13(i-a) of the Hindu Marriage Act in the Family Court in Chennai some years ago, but he had contested it.
Later although they applied for divorce by mutual consent, Mukesh did not come for the hearings, forcing her to withdraw the petition in 2010, she said. “I am now taking all steps for necessary action against Mukesh,” she concluded.
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.
