Prakash Raj (Prakash Rai) and his wife actress Lalitha Kumari have
filed a joint petition for divorce by mutual consent on Friday. The
star couple arrived to the Egmore family court together to file the
petition. The mutual settlement is expected to come out on November
Now, the couple's advocates have worked out an out-of-court
settlement, following which they have filed a joint application for
divorce by mutual consent. After hearing from the couple about the
settlement for an hour, the judge adjourned the court to November
18 for further proceedings.
The National Award winning actor had married the actress 15
years ago and he had filed for divorce and was living separately
for about a year now. Later, she again moved the family court
seeking a monthly maintenance amount of at least Rs 2 lakh for
their two daughter.
However, Lalitha Kumari's sister Disco Shanthi and her husband
actor Srihari had tried to mediate and sort out the differences
earlier this year, but in vain.
