Soon after actor Mukesh and Methil Devika got married, his ex-wife Saritha has come forward against their marriage. She claims that Mukesh and herself have not got their official divorce and that she has decided to move legally against Mukesh.
Saritha says that she and Mukesh did file for a mutual divorce, but they have not yet separated officially. She says that Mukesh's marriage with Methil Devika is illegal unless he gets his official divorce from the court. But, Mukesh's family claims that he had already got the official divorce from the Madras High Court and so the wedding remains legal.
Meanwhile, Mukesh's nephew and actor Divyadarshan said that Mukesh and Methil Devika will soon conduct their marriage in a traditional style on March. He explains saying that the news about the register marriage got leaked out somehow. He said that the couple decided to sign a register marriage due to the saying of some astrologers. Saritha says that since she has not been officially separated from Mukesh, the new marriage stands illegal and she will move forward with the legal proceedings.
Mukesh and Devika met each other in Sangeetha Nataka Academy as they were members there. Mukesh has two sons and Devika, who is also a divorcee, also has a son.
