Malayalam actor Urvashi serves legal notice to ex-husband, Manoj K Jayan

Issues between divorced Malayalam star couple – Urvashi and Manoj K Jayan took a turn for the worse on Sunday

The two separated in 2008 after eight years of marriage and have been engaged in a legal battle over possession of their 10-year-old daughter since then. Things went from bad to worse on Friday when at the Family Court in Kochi, Jayan told the media that Urvashi had come drunk and that she is an alcoholic.

“What all was he saying yesterday about me to the media in the premises of the court? Forget me as Urvashi, a film actor. I am a woman and a woman has to be respected,” said the actor to the media. “I am currently recovering from a surgery and due to that, I am under medication and hence I have some problems. But how can he say such nonsense about me? If he does not have sense, at least his counsel should have stopped him from saying such things about me,” she added.

She has sent a legal notice asking Jayan to apologise if he wants avoid legal action. Meanwhile Uravshi’s daughter Kunjatta too said that her mother was drunk on Friday. “I have never seen my father drinking. On Friday, since my mother was drunk, I did not want to go with her,” she told reporters. Currently, Kunjatta stays with Jayan, who has married again. While Urvashi, who remains single, meets her daughter once in a week. On the statement given by her daughter, Urvashi said, “She has been well tutored to say all this.”
