Karisma Kapoor, Sunjay Kapur’s divorce takes ugly turns?

Karisma Kapoor and Sunjay Kapur’s divorce turned messy after the former withdrawn her consent to the petition, which she filed last year for a divorce from her husband Sunjay Kapur on the grounds of mutual consent.

In the family court, Karisma stated she is withdrawing her consent since her husband failed to comply with the financial commitments mentioned in the consent terms signed by the couple.

Karisma's lawyer, Kranti Sathe said, "The petition did not formalise on Wednesday. We have filed an application to withdraw consent from the petition. Our stand is that there is no compliance from his (Sunjay's) side and therefore we want to withdraw. The court has asked both parties to be present on Friday."

As per the court's orders, Sunjay was supposed to meet certain financial commitments within a period of six months from the time of signing the consent papers but he did not comply.

On Wednesday, Sathe told mid-day, "Kapur just has two more days to comply with the signed norms. Till date, he has not initiated the process; neither did he approach the court to seek an extension, nor was he present during the proceedings today. Hence, we have decided to withdraw our consent."

The court will decide on Karisma's application on Friday. Meanwhile, when this paper contacted Sunjay's lawyer Narayan Suvarna, he said, "Even we have filed an application to withdraw consent from the petition on the same ground — that there is no compliance from her (Karisma's) side."

Married in 2003, the couple have two children, daughter Samaira and son Kiaan Raj.
