The director has always stated that he never wanted a separation, but it was the actress who wanted to get divorced. In an interview given to a popular magazine in 2015, Priyadarshan had also hinted that he wants to get back with Lissy and would like to live as a family once again with their kids, actress Kalyani and Siddharth.
However, Lissy later slammed the reports which suggested that the couple is considering reconciliation, through her official Facebook post. The actress confirmed that she has no plans of getting back with Priyadarshan, and has the support of their children. Lissy also alleged that the director's sentimental interview and the reconciliation rumours are scripted.
Priyadarshan and Lissy have worked together in several popular films during the initial stage of their careers and later fell in love. The director and actress tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on December 13, 1990. Lissy retired from her acting career post marriage to concentrate on family life and changed her name to Lakshmi.
The filmmaker, on the other hand, went on to establish himself as one of the most sought-after directors of Indian cinema. Priyadarshan is currently busy with the post-production of his ambitious project Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, which features Mohanlal in the lead. The couple's daughter Kalyani is playing a key role in the project.
