Bollywood's sultry sex siren Chitrangada Singh is on her way to end her 12-year-old marriage with golfer Jyoti Singh Randhawa.

The power couple has reportedly seeked divorce in a Gurgaon family court and District Judge, Baljit Singh of the family court presided over the hearing.

Chitrangada and Randhawa went ahead with their divorce proceedings in a hushed matter and kept the media away from the matter until now.

"Both Chitrangda and Jyoti had hired lawyers from Delhi. It seems the duo did not want the matter to go public," a lawyer at the court informed Hindustan Times.

The couple, who has a son named Zorawar, was seen appearing in the court along with relatives. The court has allotted the next hearing of the case on 11 November, giving the couple time ample to reconsider their decision and sort out differences amicably.

Speculations of trouble in paradise have long been drawn ever since Chitrangada and Randhwa started living in different cities owing to their professional commitments. Reports of Chitrangada's alleged link up with director Sudhir Mishra also surfaced, which the actress blatantly denied.

The couple has been dismissing the reports of break up. Randhawa had told Hindustan Times a few months ago,"We are happy and enjoying our lives. It's just that she lives in Mumbai to do her job and I stay in Gurgaon to do mine. As far as separation is concerned, till four days ago she was with me at my Gurgaon residence. Now she is in Mumbai. I don't know the source of this rumour nor do I want to know."

Chitrangada, also known as Smita Patil look-alike, forayed into Bollywood only after her marriage in 2003 with Sudhir Mishra's "Hazaron Khwaishein Aisi". She followed up with movies like "Sorry Bhai" (2008), "Yeh Saali Zindagi" (2011), "Desi Boyz" (2011), "Inkaar" (2013) and "I, Me Aur Main" (2013).

Jyoti Singh Randhwa is a globally renowned golf player with rankings in Top 100 in Official Golf Ranking from 2004-2009.
