According to reports, they had cited misunderstanding and difference of opinion as for the reason behind the decision. Since it was a mutual decision, the judicial proceedings have been smooth so far.
When she had announced her decision last year, the director had tweeted, “News about my marriage is true. We have been separated for over a year & divorce talks are on. I request all to respect my family’s privacy.”
The couple has a son named Ved. According to a report in TOI, the divorce would be granted for the couple once they decide on the terms of separation such as alimony, parental custody, visitation rights of their son Ved and so on.
If the court is satisfied with the petition and after their consultation with both of them, the divorce would be granted.
