Dileep  has also reportedly filed another petition, seeking an in camera trial and non disclosure of the matters raised in his petition to the media.

Malayalam film actor Dileep has approached a family court here seeking divorce from his actress wife Manju Warrier, who had made a comeback with recently released ‘How Old are You ?’.

The actor has also reportedly filed another petition, seeking an in camera trial and non disclosure of the matters raised in his petition to the media.

The petition is expected to come up for hearing on July 23 and the two have been asked to be present in court in person on that day.  The two have been living separately for the past few months.

Dileep in his petition stated that the news and social media had been publishing reports in the past one year that the respondent (Manju Warrier) and he had separated and that a divorce petition was likely to be filed.

Now that he had filed this original petition seeking divorce, there was every possibility for the media to publish sensational reports about the same, he said.

“The matrimonial issues between the respondent and myself are a very personal matter. To protect and prevent trial by the media and for proper conduct of proceedings before this court, it is necessary to conduct in camera trial’, he stated.

Manju, who left films after her marriage to Dileep, made a comeback with Roshan Andrews ‘How Old Are You?’, which is now being screened in theatres.  The film has already collected Rs 3.35 crore in the first week itself.

    Dear All, why do you need towaste your time for these jokers those who don't have self respect. What theyhave contributed to Kerala, we have made them stars and they have that ego inmind. They want to chase their dream but they are not bothered of theirDaughter's Dream, what is her mistake, she is being mentally hared. WhatDileep is complaining he has been mentally hared, has he ever thought of hisdaughter, has ever thought of his daughters mental harment, in his statementhe is still writing about his mental harment. when he was young though hisparents were poor they had looked after him, has he faced anything like this,when you have more money and stardom you have priorities, children are not yourpriorities.What Manju is doing, she is also chasing her Dream, doesn't care about herdaughter's dream, she had acted enough and got enough pority andrecognition, can't she think of her daughter and her life and bring up her.This is not hypocrisy it is ego.....why Dileep can't allow Manju to act inmovies as she has been abstaining from acting for the last 15yearsfor him and for the family. Why Manju can't be a simple house wife and continueher remaining life with Dileep and daughter?? they want to enjoy theirlife at what price? price of their daughter's life. Money is not everything,without parents kids growth will be in complete. Our culture is against this,divorcing and crying to public she hared me and he hared me. Marriage isan adjustment where we all adjust, you must kill your ego for a smooth andbeautiful married life it is not like silver screen.We public are fools weshouldn't give any importance to these people. Boycott their movies, this isagainst our culture for acting and fame they are devastating a poor girlslife. Please do not watch the movies of both of them till they come to anamicable settlement to live together for their daughter it is ourresponsibility to see that the child's future is taken care of. They must betelling daughter's future is secured they had made enough money, have you everthought of that poor kid's mind must be crying everyday for Mom and Pappa.This was bound to happen, whenyou do the same with your parents you would also get the same and you will paythe price for the same. She had devastated her parents when she left herparents to Marry her loved one, then she never thought of her parents, nowas mom she will also get the price for the same. These are rule ofnature, it is applicable every where, whether It is in Movie or Politics.Beingeducated people they can atleast live together for the well being of theirdaughter, if they are not ready for a settlement, there is a humble request toall the Mallus please do not watch their movies and make their all movies a bigflop to make them understand they are nothing without the audience and audiencedoesn't tolerate these behaviour to their daughter.
