Actress Shruthi, who divorced from director S Mahendar in 2011, tied the knot with journalist Chandrachuda Chakravarthi, the editor of Lankesh Patrike, earlier today (June 6). They married at the house of a priest in Kollur, Udupi district.
The interesting part of the story is that Shruti took the wedding vows on the day that coincides with her daughter's birthday. Her wedding was performed by the chief priest of the Kollur temple at the auspicious time 9.45 am. The immediate families and the close friends of the couple attended the marriage.
According to Suvarna TV, the marriage was supposed to be held at Banasehwara Venkataramana Anjaneya temple, Hosanagara taluk, Shimoga district. The initial customs had begun before the families of the couple decided to change the venue.
Troubles brewed in the place when people were not informed of the marriage and it was being performed secretly. It lead to heated arguments between the localities and the families. As the couple realised that the issue was getting out of control, they shifted the venue to Kollur temple.
Shruti and Chandrachuda had been seeing since a few years. There were reports last year that they had broken up. But with the couple finally tying the knot, the rumours have turned out false.
Actress Shruti and director S Mahender ended their 13-year-old marriage in 2011. The ex-couple parted ways on mutual consent due to irreconcilable differences. They had filed for the divorce in early 2009. The court granted the custody of their only child to Shruti.
However, soon after the divorce, S Mahendar married an economics student named Yashodha.
