It has been an fab year for actress Kavya Madhavan in Malayalam industry. She has signed not one but two movies with the two superstars of the Malayalam film industry – Mammootty and Mohanlal.
Interestingly, both her roles are as different as could be. While Kavya Madhavan plays a homemaker in Bavuttiyude Namathil scripted by filmmaker Ranjith, director Joshiy’s Lokpal will see her in a bold avatar. Says a source close to the actress, “Kavya Madhavan has performance-oriented roles in both Bavuttiyude Namathil and Lokpal.
The former will have her play a housewife who speaks in a distinctly different Nileshwaram dialect. Incidentally, that is Kavya Madhavan’s hometown’s dialect, and she is delighted to be given an opportunity to speak it on screen. In Lokpal, she essays the role of a doctor, who happens to be the ex-flame of the character played by Mohanlal.
Kavya Madhavan is a leading Malayalam film actress. She is considered as one of the best actress from Kerala and have many super hit films. She was a Kalathilakam in a Sub District Schools Youth Festival. She married Nishal Chandra in February 2009, but shortly after filed for divorce. Kavya Madhavan was granted divorce by court on may 30, 2011. Kavya and Nishal had appeared before the Ernakulam Family Court on May 25, 2011 and expressed their willingness for a mutual divorce. Divorce was finally granted by the end of may 2011.
The marriage between Kavya Madhavan has been on the rocks since a few months after the wedding in 2009, but it was in October last year that the duo finally decide to split. In fact, Kavya had even filed a petition under the Domestic Violence Act against her husband and in-laws.
But last week, Kavya and her husband reached an agreement that paved the way for the annulment of the marriage. Kavya will also withdraw her petition.
A lot of negotiations went into reaching the settlement, and both sides seem happy with the verdict.
It must be noted that an annulment is not the same as divorce. An annulment is retroactive and it renders the marriage null or void, as if it hadn’t taken place.
Kavya and Nischal, a computer engineer, got married in February 2009. But just a few months after the wedding the news of constant feud between the couple appeared. Kavya, too, admitted that not all was well in her marriage.
Kavya has been active in Malayalam cinema since 1996. She has acted in scores of films since then.
It’s been a little more than five months since Kavya Madhavan tied the knot with Nischal Chandran, a failed actor, and rumour is rife that their marriage is on the rocks. Though there’s yet not been an official confirmation of this by Kavya or her parents, Kavya has flown back to Kochi from her husband’s home in Kuwait.
In fact, reports say Kavya’s family has already approached a lawyer to file for divorce.
The reasons of rift in the five-month long marriage are unclear, but sources close to Kavya are quoted as saying that Kavya and Nischal could not get along and he kept harassing her with allegations that she had had an affair with a top Malayalam actor.
Meanwhile, Nischal’s career was on a downslide and he was even jobless for a while.
Kavya, who had announced her retirement from films after marrying Nischal in February this year, was reportedly being compelled by her husband to join the industry again. Unable to take the harassment, the actress reportedly flew to her parent’s home.
An official confirmation that she’s seeking divorce is still awaited.
