Lissy later accepted his love but was confused about her feelings for a long time. Priyadarshan, on the other hand, was extremely protective towards his girlfriend, thanks to their 10-year age gap.

The couple is blessed with two kids Siddharth, who is currently studying abroad and Kalyani, who recently made her movie debut as the assistant art director of Iru Mugan.
Now, Lissy is relieved that she has come to the end of the most distressing journey of her life, marriage. She concluded her press note, by thanking all the friends and well-wishers who supported her.
Priyadarshan and Lissy entered wedlock in 1990, after long years of courtship. The couple has two kids, Siddharth and Kalyani. The couple started living separately and filed for divorce in December 2014.
