Before the news of Dileep-Manju Warrier divorce cools down, another star couple has part their ways. Actor Ranjith and actress Priya Raman who got divorced recently are living separately now.
Ranjith who began his career with the Tamil film "Sindhu Nathi Poo" in 1994 became famous for his roles in Malayalam and Tamil. He was noticed for his character in "Maru Malarachi" for which he won Tamil Nadu state award for the best villain. After acting in more than 50 Tamil films, he made his entry to the Malayalam industry through Mohanlal's "Natturajavu." This was followed by movies like "Chandrolsavam" and "Lokanathan IAS." But, it was "Rajamanikyam" which won him many accolades as an actor in negative roles.
Ranjith also made his directorial debut with the 2003 Tamil crime film "Bheeshmar" which was produced by Priya Raman.
Priya Raman, withdrew from the film world after she married Ranjith in 1999. She began her career with the Tamil movie "Valli" and made her entry into Malayalam films with I.V. Sasi's "Arthana." Her most noticed role was in Joshy's "Sainyam" along with Mammootty in which she played the role of an air force pilot. She later went on to do many Malayalam films opposite actors like Mohanlal, Suresh Gopi, Dileep, Mukesh and Manoj K Jayan and here notable movies include "Kashmeeram", "Araam Thamburan" and "No:1 Snehatheeram Bangalore North" among others.
Priya Raman met Ranjith during the shooting of "Nesam Pudhusu" and fell in love with him. They got married in 1999 and have two kids; Adithya and Akash aged seven and three. After 13 years of married life, the couple had applied for their divorce in November 2013 by mutual consent and were granted divorce on 16 May this year. The kids are now living with her.
The reason for the split is said to be opinion differences and disagreements between them. After the divorce, Ranjith makes sure that he visits his children as often as possible and would like to be in a friendly relationship with his ex-wife.
Even though she has not announced anything with regard to her comeback in films, rumors of her returning like Manju Warrier are already brewing up in the industry.
