Bangalore: Shruti Prefers 'Chandra' over 'Indra' - Marries Childhood Friend


Bangalore: Shruti Prefers 'Chandra' over 'Indra' - Marries Childhood Friend

Daijiworld Media Network - Bangalore (GA)

Bangalore, May 8: Sandalwood beauty Shruti who perplexed all and sundry after she sought divorce from her husband Mah’endar’, has now virtually dropped a bombshell in the film industry after it was disclosed that she had already married her 'one-year' lover interest 'Chandra'chood alias Chakravarthy.

As known, Shruti had sought divorce from Mahendar whom she married 11 years ago secretly in Puri Jagannath temple. She has a girl child from Mahendar.

Reliable sources said that Shruti had married Chakravarthy about a month ago and she is now busy performing religious rituals at Tirupati for the success of her 'marriage'. It is gathered that Shruti and Chakravarthy have been 'going on' for almost a year now.

Both Chakravarthy and Shruti hail from Holenarsipur taluk in Hassan district. They are distant relatives too. Chakravarthy had worked as a tabloid journalist before moving towards film industry. His directorial debut 'Janma' is supposed to hit the screens in a few days' time.

Made-for-each-other Couple?

Keeping aside all those rumours, which have taken not only in the film industry but even the state political field by storm (she is State Woman and Child Development Corporation president), there are certain things which seems to be 'working' in favour of Shruti and Chakravarthy. It is just a single number that separates Shruti's phone number with that of Chakravarthy. Both claim that neither of them had asked for the particular number. While Shruti's daughter Gauri was born on June 5, Chakravarthy's daughter was born on June 6. Both of them are 33-year-old now and there is 33 days difference between their birthdays. During their childhood days they studied in the same school and lived on the same street.

Chakravarthy was Shruthi's campaign manager, he wrote her speeches, and will now direct her in a powerful feminist film Janma. It is learnt that he has already disclosed to the media that he is in love with Shruti and is planning to marry her soon. "There is nothing secret about it. Our families know each other and now they know about our relationship too. They don't have any objection. Hence we are marrying soon," he said. However, a famous Kannada actress has confirmed that Shruti and Chakravarthy have already married.

When asked Shruti about her new 'love interest', she replied in the affirmative. "I wanted to divorce Mahendar even before completing the first anniversary of our marriage. But I withheld myself fearing society. But now it's all over as I cannot go on for long. Earlier I had thought of jumping out of the sinking ship. But of recent I learnt that one can live even by jumping to the other ship. That is what I am doing," she added. When she was drawn to the fact that Chakravarthy had already married and even had a child, she said that his marriage too was on rocks. "Hence we have decided to come out of our respective marriages. Both of us perhaps had made wrong choice with regard to our first marriage. But now we want to rectify it," she quipped.

On the other hand, sources close to Mahendar said that reasons sighted by Shruti while seeking divorce are not true. "God only knows as why did she do like this. Mahendar has been shattered. He had no one and nothing else in his life. He even bought a Rs 60 lac house for her soon after the marriage. It is true that he is going through a rough patch of his career. But that cannot just rock their relationship of years together. He has been doing nothing except shedding tears eversince Shruti filed the divorce case," said one of Mahedar's close associates on condition of anonymity.

Whether it is correct or incorrect, Shruti has proved that 'real life' isn't much different from 'reel life', at least for 'haves'. If this had to happen in the life of some 'have nots', it would have been a big issue which could have invited the wrath of everyone around. Shruti had been famous per her strong 'feminist' and 'pro-women' roles in the films and the viewers had accepted her films.

So one has to keep his/her finger crossed to see whether the spectators will accept this 'role' of Shruti who also happens to be the president of State Woman and Child Development Corporation.

Hmmm... isn't it quite right that there is nothing wrong in love and war?

    Shruthi is in love and I am sure, to her the grass seems greener on the other side. When she gets back to her senses it may be too late. The damage to her daughter is already done .Every marriage has it’s ups and downs. When you have brought a child into this world it’s as parents our responsibility to work it out as long as there is no physical abuse...

    May be she needs to think from a Childs point of view. Divorce is an intensely stressful experience for all children it is hard to imagine a more difficult transition for a child than to be a party to his or her parents divorce. When mom and dad are at odds and are either separated or planning on separating, Children have a realistic fear that if they lose one parent they may loose the other. The concept of being alone in this world is frightening thing for a child. I am not sure how old her daughter is.

    She needs to think twice before she brings her new love into her house. In few years he will dump her for her daughter. In this case I really hope the father gets physical custody of their daughter. Mother seems to be in her own world.

    Now cat is out of the bag.If she has married a person before obtaining a divorce, it is a crime. She should step down from the prestigious post of President for the State Women and Child Developement Corporation. Was she was not hypocrite while campaigning for her (first)husband.

    This is the truth behind most divorces filed by women, at last the Women''s president has proved the truth, by enacting lawlessness - how can she get married before being properly divorced? She should resign from Child Development - what is the role model she is setting for children? Does she even care for her daughter or is that too some "unfortunate mistake, needed to be rectified"? Lots of questions... Could Daijiworld conduct an interview with her?

    Surely there are better things to be written about. Most film personalities, like most politicians, have no morals or ethics and will seek to justify even their wrong actions.
