Jyothirmayi on Wednesday filed a petition at the Ernakulam Family court, seeking divorce from husband Nishanth, who is a software engineer. A childhood friend, the actress married Nishanth in 2003.
If sources are to be believed, the marriage was on the rocks for the last couple of years, as Jyothirmayi wanted to concentrate on acting profession, with her husband strongly opposing her decision.
A noted actress in Mollywood, Jyothirmayi is popular in Kollywood too, where she was part of movies such as ‘Thalainagaram’, ‘Arai Enn 305il Kadavul’, ‘Naan Avan Illai’ and ‘Vedigundu Murugesan’.
It is said that the actress was in love with Nishanth for many years before marrying him. Circles close to her say there is a misunderstanding with Nishanth and she left him some months ago and hence she has now applied for divorce.
