Karisma Kapoor and Sunjay Kapur’s ten-year marriage has finally reached the doorstep of courtroom.
The pair, who’ve been living separately for many years now, has decided to officially call it a day. Sunjay and Karisma have filed for divorce on mutual consent.
The duo was spotted outside Bandra family court last week and the hearing of the divorce went on for three long hours. Both sides will mutually decide the alimony issue, maintenance including custody of the children.
After separating with Sunjay, Karisma left Delhi and went to Mumbai, living with her mother Babita.
Recently, the businessman filed custody case against Karisma and claimed that she did not allow him to meet his two children, Samaira and Kiaan Raj Kapoor.
Karisma married Sunjay on September 29th 2003 and soon after the birth of their first children, report of their marital problem surfaced.
Karisma left her husband, taking their daughter with her – which itself caused headlines back in the day.
After managing to woo her back things remained seemingly calm. It was after the birth of their second child that trouble brewed once again. This saw Karisma permanently leaving the marital home in Delhi and moved to Mumbai.
It’s been rumoured that the main reason for the couple’s fallout is to do with a sexual relationship Sunjay had with a Delhi socialite Priya Chatwal.
The pair are now trying to come to an agreement where they can get mutual custody of the two children. As the kids are too young to decide for themselves, talks are on over how they will manage it, as both Karisma and Sanjay live in different cities.
Sunjay was previously married to designer Nandita Mahtani.
