Dileep, the Janapriya Nayakan of Mollywood is now leading a happy married life with Kavya Madhavan, the actress whom he married after ending his marital relationship with lady Superstar Manju Warrier. After the divorce of Manju Warrier and Dileep, many rumors surfaced on the internet stating that it was the latter's romantic affair with Kavya that resulted in their break up.

Dileep said Kavya Madhavan is just a friend

After the divorce, during an interview given to Reporter TV, Dileep told Nikesh Kumar that Kavya Madhavan is not the reason behind his divorce. He also added that Kavya Madhavan is one of his best friends, just like Nayanthara and Mamta Mohandas.

"Kavya Madhavan is not the reason behind my divorce. I feel really sad that Kavya Madhavan is being made a scapegoat. People who spread these rumors should understand that they too have women in their homes. For me, Kavya Madhavan is a great friend like Nayanthara, Mamta Mohandas, Amala Paul, and Meera Jasmine. My friendship with Kavya Madhavan began around 20 years back," said Dileep.
