Cheated in love

By Prashanth
Jun 07 2009

Most young men would want to someday fall in love, get married and settle down. Unfortunately, in my case, things did not quite go as per plan. Less than four months into my marriage, my wife, Grahalakshmi walked out and headed to her parents’ home. Before leaving though, she made her intentions clear — she wanted a divorce and an alimony, amounting to anything between Rs 5 crore and Rs 50 crore.

I was baffled by her behaviour at first, unable to comprehend the logic behind her actions. I tried reasoning with her, attempting to figure out a way to reconcile. But, I soon realised there was no room for compromise in her stance. She told me she’d make me run from pillar to post once she filed a case of dowry harassment under Section 498(A) against me.

Section 498(A) is akin to POTA (Prevention of Terrorist Activities Act); it is a non-bailable offence. A woman can walk into a police station, give a statement against her husband and get him or his entire family arrested on charges of harassment for dowry.

What is ironic and distressing is that a law meant to protect the rights of women is being exploited for wrong reasons. As a result, even the veracity of a genuine complainant could come under the scanner in future.

I put my film career on hold during these four tumultuous years. I didn’t want my producers and friends to suffer at my cost. But then, the onslaught was only beginning. Months after my wife filed the case, an anonymous benefactor told me that Grahalakshmi was already married to someone much before she tied the knot with me. One night as I frantically ran a search through the government’s online registry, my worst fears were confirmed. The revelation turned the case in my favour.

Throughout the duration of our trial, Grahalakshmi re-invented facts and fabricated new lies. Later she proceeded to file an affidavit stating I had forged the documents pertaining to her earlier marriage. Rather than shocked, I was saddened; why would someone throw everything good about one’s life right out of the window? I had struggled hard to make a name for myself in the film industry and I had a decent reputation. I could have given her and our child a good life, but it wasn’t meant to be.

Although this was a trial by fire, I was blessed to have the support of several do-gooders. Everyone from my parents, to my sister, my friends in the film fraternity in Chennai, even petitioners who had come to court to find solutions to their own problems lent me their moral support.

The court annulled my marriage to Grahalakshmi on grounds of misrepresented facts. But the custody of my son has been granted to her until he’s an adult. I am still hopeful about a good future for him. Looking back, I realised that everything that I had undergone was a part of Thiruvilayadal (divine games). I was chosen by God to serve as a cautionary tale for future generations when it comes to issues of matrimony. I am grateful to God for being blessed with a great family, loyal friends and a good life.

Though having faced such hurdles in life, my faith in love and marriage has not been shaken. I still believe in the power of love and the institution of marriage. Nevertheless, I would like to warn youngsters treating marriage with complacency. It’s not a relationship of convenience and they shouldn’t even consider divorce as an option. For now, I’m just focussing on my career in films and looking ahead at life with a renewed sense of hope and ambition.

    Are you telling the truth? If you were good, why on earth she left you? You better not get married since your father controls your life.


    • 2 deepa bharti December 30, 2014 at 4:42 pm

      hello….if something wrong happend wid anyone it does not mean tht person is wrong…may b destiny has planned a better life partner for him….so tht it happend…if u dnt knw the whole truth so keep ur comment wid urself…..

    yes, mani. all know prashanth and thiaga lies alot. all know how intimate prashanth and sneka are. see how she laughs like pig with prashanth putting diamond necklaces. sneka ditched nagravi. prashanth ditched grihaluxmi. so both prashanth, sneka laughing like pigs and going to join in their bloody life. prashanth put sneka as heroine for his bloody movie ponnar sankar. who on earth would do this much injustice to wife except this bastard prashanth?


  3. 6 Vasanthy March 12, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    As far as I believe Prashanth had a very good reputation, its
    true his father is controlling him, but for good reasons. This
    is what happens when you are over protective and raise good kids
    unfortunately they end up having a bad marriage partner, which ruins their entire life. As far as I see cheaters and liers run
    the world. I truly wish Prashanth a very happy and peaceful life
    and may he be showered with all what he missed during the four
    years of marriage to a slut.


  4. 7 Abhiram Reddy June 29, 2011 at 12:06 am

    I truly pray god to get them meet again and solve their problem , my hearty wishes to Prashanth and Grahalakshmi to get bonded again they have to live together for the rest of the life..


  5. 9 Abhishek June 30, 2011 at 5:03 am

    i think apart from marriage life, Prashanth should stop acting in films with his father. Even many actors who came through Father’s influence havent succeeded except few like Vijay etc. But Prashanth was a successful hero til the film Majunu . But after the film his marriage finished his carreer . So now its time for Prashanth to search new directors and get good movies. So please Sir as a great Fan i request you to stop acting in films which has no sense. Please give a film in Romantic sequence line like Jeans,Star,Good Luck,Majunu. Please trim your hair and remove Beard and mousch and come as the old prashanth in Jeans. 🙂

    Prashant’s parents and sister are dominating and controlling They made life miserable to Grihalakshmi. It is usual MIL -DIL story. It is a true fact that Prashant’s Mother demanded more dowry from Grihalakshmi’s father. Prashanth did not support his wife. He sided with his parents and sister.

    Grihalakshmi’s first husband Venu Prasad told in court there was no s*x between him and Grihalakshmi. They did not live together. They had court marriage only to force parents to conduct proper traditional marriage. But Venu Prasad realised parents will not give permission. So Venu Prasad moved in life and married Lela.

    Prashanth also had girlfriends before marriage. Why to blame Grihalaskhmi only. Prashant was having playboy image before marriage. All girls think marriage will change a man.

    Past is past and need not be big issue. But Prashanth is misguided by his parents to act against Grihalaskhmi in all matters.

    Prashanth has ruined life of Grihalakshmi and his son. Until Prashant’s parents are alive he cannot have peaceful marriage with anyone under any circumstance.

    If Prashant wants a good life, he must stop acting in his father’s films. He must stop living with this parents. His parents only want to make money out of him. They will never allow Prashanth to have peaceful married life.


    • 14 swathi March 14, 2013 at 5:49 am

      stop talking nonsense , u might also have parents ,no parents want to spoil their children’s life . It is all the fate to get understanding life partners .Non of the couples get married just take an divorce .it is the incompatibility with new life partners ….

      I wish all the best for prasanth with an new understanding life partner…


    • 15 betrue March 15, 2016 at 7:24 pm

      very correct. dowry plays a major role.


  9. 16 Badri July 8, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    I am a big fan of Prashanth. I know he will never be wicked to his wife. All the dramas must be created by his wife. I wish he must have a second marriage and lead a very peaceful life.
    It is not that Prashanth should not act in his father’s films, but the film made must have good story, direction and some good fight sequence (not overtly unrealistic). Then he is the top star in the Film Industry.

    now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    They’re really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too short
    for newbies. Could you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time?

    are you telling the truth ? sir


    • 32 ss January 2, 2017 at 9:09 am

      Yes he is telling the truth.
      Grahalakshmi is a psycopath.

      Please read this book “Psycopath free”. It will help you understand why I am telling Grahalakshmi is a psycopath.

      All psycopath don’t have long term goals/career and look for options of getting quick money/sex. They always target those who has good name.

      In Germany if a Psycopath (her) got caught with proper evidence then they immediately arrest them by dragging her through the streets by her hair while she is screaming. Germans think Psycopaths are bad for countries growing economy and they should be stopped immediately 😛

      See this case of “Dalia Dippolito”. Funny that she is so dump and got caught with 20 years of imprisonment 🙂

Some Interesting Stats On Arrests Of Women

In 1930, the British govt arrested 17,000 women for their involvement in the Dandi Yatra (Salt March). During 1937 to 1947 (10 Years), they arrested 5,000 women involved in the freedom struggle. From 2004 to 2006, the govt of India arrested 90,000 women of all ages under 498A. On the average, 27,000 women per year are being arrested under this flawed law. These are stats from the NCRB.

The family of the writer was tortured by the Indian Police in an attempt to extort over a $100,000 by holding them in custody for over a week. The police, in cahoots with the magistrate and the PP, did this due to the ridiculous allegations made in a 498A case by his embittered ex-wife. She filed the case years after he and his family had last seen her. Thousands of 498A cases are filed each year in India by women seeking to wreak vengeance on their husbands and in-laws. Enormous sums are extorted from intimidated families implicated in these cases by corrupt Indian police officers and elements of the Indian judiciary.
