Actress Karisma Kapoor and estranged husband Sunjay Kapur were to end their 10-year-long marriage before the end of 2014. A few days ago, the couple filed a mutual consent divorce petition in the city Family Court.
However, according to report published in Times Of India, Karisma and Sunjay could not reach a consensus at the final hearing of their case as a result the judge adjourned the session, telling them to work out a settlement by February, amicably outside the court, or withdraw their joint petition for divorce under the Hindu Marriage Act.
The issue that Karisma and Sunjay were reportedly arguing about was the terms of a trust being set up for the welfare of their two children – Sameria Kapoor and Kiaan Raj Kapoor. Apparently, Sunjay refused to handover control of the trust over to Karisma. Karisma is represented by divorce lawyer Kranti Sathe, while Sunjay had two lawyers from Delhi.
Karisma and Sunjay tied the knot on September 29, 2003. Their first child, Samiera was born on March 11, 2005 and the couple welcomed Kiaan on March 12, 2010. After the birth of her son, Karisma moved from Delhi to her mother Babita’s house in Mumbai and has lived here ever since.
Sunjay Kapur moved the Bandra family court on May 31. He filed a custody petition for the children, saying Karisma was dating someone else.
Karisma is rumoured to be romantically involved with a pharma company honcho Sandeep Toshniwal, who also has his divorce plea pending.
