“It is with profound sadness that I am announcing that I and Priyadarshan have decided to get separated after 24 years of marriage. I have filed for divorce today (Monday) in Chennai family court. Both our children and close friends are aware of this decision.”
Earlier this year there were several reports stating the couple was headed for a split, but both Priyadarshan and Lissy always dodged these questions.
Priyadarshan met Lissy when she was 16, on the sets of his film ‘Odaruthammava Alariyam’ in 1984. Lissy starred in plenty of films made by her husband in the 80s. In 1990 she decided to give up her acting career, and tied the knot to Priyadarshan.
