Kavya Madhavan is officially single again

Her divorce has finally come through

When Kavya Madhavan tied the knot with Nischal Chandra in February 2009, their friends described it as a marriage made in heaven. She was the reigning queen of Mollywood and he was a child actor turned businessman who understood movies. The entire industry was there to celebrate the wedding that was also aired live on some television channels, ostensibly for a price!

Unfortunately for the actress, things turned sour soon after. Kavya quit the industry to settle down with her husband in Kuwait. Reports suggested incompatibility issues cropped up within four to five months. Kavya sought a formal divorce from her husband in a Thiruvananthapuram court in July 2009 and returned to her family at Ernakulam.

Allegations and counter allegations flew thick and fast between the two sides with Kavya filing two cases against Chandra and his family, including a dowry harassment complaint. After all this brouhaha, the duo officially decided to separate in October 2010 and jointly filed a divorce petition in Ernakulam.

In between, Kavya came back to the silver screen and regained her top billing with successful movies like Gaddama and China Town. Having settled down to a life of stardom once again, Kavya possibly decided that it was time to unravel the legal tangles in her life and therefore agreed to an out-of-court settlement that has resulted in a formal divorce.

We hope that the closure of the lawsuits will provide Kavya with the fillip to take up challenging roles and continue to wow audiences.
