Actor Mukesh had made it to the headlines after he got married to the dancer Methil Devika last Friday. It was a love marriage. Mukesh, who married actress Saritha earlier, had two sons. But soon after the marriage, Saritha came front claiming that Mukesh's new marriage stands illegal as she and Mukesh are not officially divorced. Though Mukesh did not respond then, the actor has come up with his reply now.
Mukesh says that he and Saritha were living separately since 1996. He filed a divorce case at Ernakulam Family Court and the court granted him the divorce in 2012 January. Mukesh says that now it has been one and a half years since he got his divorce from Saritha and so, adding on, he claims that his second marriage is in no way an act of bigamy.
Mukesh says that he married Methil Devika under the special marriage act. He had submitted all the records of his previous marriage including the divorce granted paper before getting married to Methil Devika. Under these circumstances, Mukesh says that his marriage with Methil Devika is legal in all ways and Saritha's claims stand way out.
Mukesh was in Dubai when Saritha made her statement against the re-marriage. His sons are staying along with Saritha, who is currently residing in Dubai.
