Actor Mukesh, who was in news recently for his second marriage with the dancer Methil Devika, has been questioned by the Chennai Crime Branch. As per the reports, Mukesh was questioned by the crime branch with regard to the complaint filed by his ex-wife and actress Saritha.
Soon after the news of Mukesh's second marriage was out, Saritha
came forward claiming that the marriage is illegal. She said that
she and Mukesh were not officially divorced. She admitted the fact
that they have filed for a mutual divorce at the Chennai family
court, but the final decision by the court is yet to come.
Mukesh, who then kept quiet, later came forward saying that he had already got the divorce from Saritha from the Ernakulam family court. He also said that he is not responsible if Saritha is not aware of this fact. He said that he entered into wedlock with Methil Devika after submitting his divorce paper with Saritha.
Mukesh and Saritha married in 1983 and then started living separately from 2003 onwards. They have two sons, staying with Saritha in Dubai. Meanwhile, there were speculations that Mukesh and Methil Devika had a love marriage, but Devika said that it was not a love but an arranged marriage.
