but within a week she filled Divorce, she Admited she will marry again…
Here is the news.
Kannada actress Shruti to wed again
On May 5, Kannada actress Shruti — who is also the Chairperson of the Karnataka state Women and Child Welfare organisation and the leading campaigner for the BJP party — put in her divorce papers against husband and Kannada film director S Mahendar.
The two phase elections to the Lok Sabha from Karnataka ended on April 30. Since Shruthi filed her divorce papers a couple of days later, it saved the BJP from the embarrassment of having its chief campaigners pitted against each other in the family court.
In an interesting development, Shruthi has now admitted that she will be wed Chandrachud, a former journalist-turned-film director. Chandrachud’s first directorial venture is currently in the post production stage. He was earlier a columnist in the Bhanuvara periodical.
Shruti, who is currently in Tirupati with Chandrachud, does not deny the reports. “Yes, I have decided to marry Chandrachud,” she says. “I have sought the blessings of Lord Venkateshwara. But that will be only after my [divorce] petition gets the nod from the court.”
Shruthi and Mahendar were married in 1998. He is a well known film director of the Kannada film industry having directed over 20 films in Kannada. He has directed many films starring Shruthi, including blockbusters like Karpoorada Gombe and the award-winning film Gowdaru. Their closeness was visible even during the recent Platinum Jubilee celebrations of the Kannada film industry. She campaigned heavily for her husband, who was the BJP candidate from the Kollegal constituency in the last Assembly elections.
But she denied that she was a home-breaker and said that she took the decision to marry Chandrachud only after realising that his marital life was also facing serious problems. “Anyway, we cannot tie the knot until our respective divorce papers are decided by the court,” she says.
“It [divorce] was the most painful decision in my life,” Shruti says. “I was contemplating divorce for the past eight years. Though I tried my level best to save the marriage, things did not improve as I had anticipated. I tried to make many compromises, which did not help. I think I have taken the best decision in the circumstances and will be able to look after my child. I know this decision would hurt some people in my family but the long term benefits would be certainly a win-win situation for both Mahendar and me.
We are Shocked – S. Mahendar
Kannada filmmaker S. Mahendar said he and his family members are “shocked” by his actress wife Shruthi’s decision to file for a divorce after 11 years of marriage. He added that their relationship was never strained, as claimed by Shruthi.
Mahender, who has been inaccessible to the media ever since Shruthi filed for divorce, headed for Bandalli village in Karnataka’s Chamrajanagar district to be with his mother.
“I have come here to see my aged mother, who has been utterly devastated by these developments. But now we have come to terms to face the reality that is staring us and even my mother and other relatives have recovered from the initial shock,” Mahendar told Media in an interview over phone from Bandalli, nearly 200 km from here.
“I have still not understood how all these things happened all of a sudden. The quick developments in the past few days have blunted my thinking capacity. I’m too shocked to think rationally and react to this situation. I didn’t have an inkling that Shruthi may go the extent of breaking the relationship. I still care for her and my child,” the director said.
“To me saving the marriage is important. But now I think the situation has gone too far. That’s the reason why I remained inaccessible to my film industry friends and journalists ever since this unsavoury incident in my life happened,” Mahendar added.
Shruthi, who Friday said she will be marrying journalist-turned-director Chandrachud alias Chakri after her divorce plea is accepted, had earlier told Media that filing for divorce was a difficult decision, but an inevitable one due to a “lot of pain” in her married life.
“Though I had strained relationship with Mahendar, I had consciously decided to keep it with myself. I still hold lot of respect towards Mahendar,” the actress had said.
But Mahender rubbished her claims of their relationship being strained.
“Shruthi is obviously lying when she says we didn’t enjoy a good relationship for the past eight years. If that was a fact how did she accompany me to all the film and family functions till recently? Shruthi was more eager to present an image of a happily-married wife always…and in a recent TV interview she (even) praised me to skies,” a shocked Mahender said.
The director, however, admitted that they had differences, which any normal couple would have.
“I don’t say we didn’t have any differences, but that’s all part of anybody’s married life. And as in the case of others, we used to patch up. Till recently both of us were discussing about our child’s future. And both of us have campaigned jointly for the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) many times,” he stressed.
Both Shruthi and Mahendar are BJP leaders. The latter had contested the recently held assembly elections in Karnataka from Kollegal constituency.
Mahender said he was happy that many of his colleagues in the film industry had come to his support in such a time of crisis and added that he would return to Bangalore Monday.
“This incident has however made me stronger because it has made me realise the level of goodwill I enjoy in the film industry,” he said.
