According to sources, Manoj K Jayan, who has been staying with his parents and daughter Kunjaatta at Cochin, has chosen Asha, who is a native of Varkala. His marriage with her was held without much fanfare in a relative's house at Thrissur on the last Thursday. The actor had not invited anyone from the media or the Malayalam film industry.
However, Manoj K Jayan had got married to Urvashi after a brief courtship in the year 2000. They have a daughter from their marriage. They had been going through rough patches for a while and their problems worsened in 2008. So they got divorced on mutual consent on 10th October, 2008. The reason behind their split was that Urvashi wanted to concentrate on her career, but Manoj was not happy with it. The legal battle over their daughter's custody is still on.
