The family court in Mumbai granted a decree of divorce to actor Karisma Kapoor and businessman Sunjay Kapur on 13 June. This means the couple is now officially divorced, as per latest reports. The divorce proceedings were attended by both Karisma and Sunjay.
The former couple was in the news earlier this year with a war of words between them, but soon a ceasefire was declared and they decided to settle the matter by mutual consent.
The issues related to finance and the custody of their children were resolved earlier this year. Although Karisma has been given full custody of their children, Samaira and Kiaan, Sunjay will be allowed to spend time with them on weekends and holidays.
Karisma married Sunjay in 2003 and problems emerged for the first time after the birth of their first child, Samaira, in 2005. But the two later reconciled and their second child, Kiaan, was born in 2010. However, their relationship once again went through troubled waters and they applied for a divorce in 2014 through mutual consent. Sunjay Kapur was earlier married to designer Nandita Mahtani and obtained a divorce just before marrying Karisma.
