Malayalam movie industry has always witnessed the ups and downs in the personal lives of the actors. The industry made a record with the highest number of celebrity marriages in 2014. On the other hand, some beautiful relationships ended in a sad note. Here is the list of the couples, who shocked Mollywood with their decision to part ways, in 2014.
The most celebrated couple of Malayalam cinema, was speculated to be living separately since 2013; but was in no mood to open up about the separation till Manju announced her movie comeback. Dileep and Manju Warrier admitted that they are parting ways after 14 years of marriage, in the beginning of 2014.
Dileep, who announced the separation, initially filed a divorce petition in Thrissur family court. After a couple of weeks, Manju also confirmed the divorce and the couple filed a mutual divorce petition in Ernakulam family court. The first hearing on the case is slated for January 2015. The actual reasons behind the divorce remains as a mystery.
Popular director Priyadarshan and wife, actress Lissy are parting ways after 24 years of togetherness. Lissy recently filed a divorce in Chennai family court and announced the divorce with a press release. It was rumored that the couple is planning to divorce, since the beginning of 2013. But both Priyadarshan and Lissy initially brushed off the rumors stating that they are very much together.
The reports suggest that the clashes regarding the management of CCL team Kerala Strikers, owned by the couple and the extra-marital affairs are the prime reasons which led to the divorce. Priyadarshan hasn't made any comments on the reports yet.
Priya Raman, the beautiful actress who made a mark with her exuberant onscreen presence, and Ranjith, the actor who mesmerized the Malayali audience with his negative roles in blockbuster movies Rajamanikyam and Chandrolsavam, also ended up their 15 years of marriage, in 2014.
The couple decided to end up their relationship, reportedly due to Ranjith's relationship with Tamil actress Ragasudha. The actor tied the knot with Ragasudha, immediately after the divorce.
