As per sources, two days ago, Sai had lodged a complaint against Vanitha, alleging that she took away his car from the parking without informing him.
Sources reveal that Vanitha has rubbished all the allegations and said, “For the torture, he had give me, I should have committed suicide. He used to have affairs and had beaten me several time while travelling in car. Two years ago, I decided to live separately since he was refusing to mend his ways. I have been fighting for my rights legally.”
Vijay and Vanitha have applied divorce in a family court and the court has been hearing their pleas for a while now. On the other hand, the court granted him permission to meet his daughter on every Sunday.
Sources say that Sai had gone into depression due to his disturbed married life and financial crunches.
