If recent reports are anything to go by, Karisma Kapoor’s estranged husband has filed a petition for the custody of their two children- Samaira and Kiaan.
Over the last few weeks, the grape vine has been buzzing with rumours about how Delhi businessman Sunjay Kapur has moved court against his estranged wife Karisma Kapoor for the custody of their nine-year-old daughter Samaira.
A leading production house now learnt that Sanjay is also fighting for the custody of their four-year-old son Kiaan Raj Kapoor. A custody petition has been filed at the Bandra Family Court by his lawyers who are tight-lipped about the details of the case. A copy of the same has been sent to Karisma as well.
A source close to Sanjay quoted, “Sanjay was forced to take this step as Karisma has not been allowing him access to the kids.”
Speculations are rife in the Bandra Family Court that Randhir and Babita’s eldest daughter is contemplating divorce following irreconcilable differences with her hubby. These differences have already led to a quasi-separation between the two.
Sanjay’s friend admits he had earlier said that he would never divorce Karisma.
“But I think the time has come when they want to break free from their marriage and move ahead in life,” he adds.
Meanwhile, the social circuit in Delhi is agog with rumours that Sanjay and hotelier Vikram Chatwal’s ex-wife Priya are a couple. Earlier, they were occasionally spotted at various Delhi nightclubs, but now the duo has become almost inseparable. Priya’s divorce from Vikram has come through and if she wants she can formalise her relationship with Sunjay if and when his marriage is dissolved.
A source close to the actress said: “Karisma definitely does not like Sanjay’s proximity to Priya. She is extremely stressed out. She’s keeping quiet because Kapoors don’t wash their dirty linen in public. But she will answer Sunjay in court.”
Karisma married Sunjay on September 29, 2003. Samaira was born on March 11, 2005; and Kiaan on March 12, 2010. Soon after the birth of their son, she moved back to Mumbai.
Karisma and Sanjay remained unavailable for comment.
