Actor Arvind Swamy,the romantic hero of the 90’s who turned an entrepreneur after a gradual decline in offers in Kollywood, is experiencing a discordant marital life with wife of 16 years Gayathri Ramamurthy.Both of them are seeking divorce on mutual consent.
On Wednesday, the two appeared before Principal Judge, Family Court, S.Meenakshisundaram, who recorded evidence on their plea. In their petition, it was informed that Arvind Swamy would make a one-time payment of Rs 75 lakhs and a monthly maintenance of Rs 1 lakh to Gayathri.
“The monthly maintenance shall continue to be paid as long as Gayathri does not remarry,” the agreement states, adding that the monthly alimony is “not subject to enhancement, under any circumstances, whatsoever.”
Also Gayathri has a right to claim any of the movable or immovable property but Arvind Swamy is supposedly retaining the custody of the minor children. Gayathri will have custody of the children every Saturday and for seven continuous days during the summer holidays.
The court adjourned the matter to December 10 for orders where upon further actions will be taken.
The couple tied the knot back in June 3, 1994, and have 2 children Adhira Swamy and Rudra Swamy. The couple separated in December, 2003, and the children have been living with Arvind from then on. The reason for the case has been incompatibility of temperament between two parties.
At the end of the day it’s the children who suffer the most because of irresponsible parents. Is anyone even ready to care about their plea?
