Veteran actress Saritha is hailed as one of the greatest ever who has shined in many characters in all South Indian languages. She fell in love with veteran Malayalam actor Mukesh after costarring with him in several films during the 1980s. The couple got married in 1988 and have two sons but got divorced in 2011 due to irreconcilable differences.

In 2013, Mukesh married famous dancer Methil Devika but now his second wife too has filed for divorce. She has stated in an interview “I have no adverse feelings towards Mukesh and the choice to split is purely a personal decision,”

“Though we were together for the past eight years, I was not able to understand him as a husband. He was never a good husband. So no matter how many years I live with him, I won't be able to understand him. Hence, I decided to split,” said Devika, who has been staying in her ancestral home over the past few months due to personal differences with Mukesh.

Saritha had previously alleged that Mukesh was an alcoholic, and that he used to have physical relationships with several women. The actor-politician who has starred in hundreds of Malayalam films and also a few Tamil ones has not commented on the issue yet.
