Actor Deepak Tijori, best known for his role in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (1992), is going a through a crisis in his personal life. As per a report on entertainment website Spotboye.com, Tijori’s wife Shivani has allegedly thrown him out of their 4BHK apartment in Goregaon, filed for divorce and sought maintenance. 

The real shocker came for Tijori recently when he realised that his wife Shivani was not legally divorced from her first husband. If that is indeed the truth, Tijori’s marriage to Shivani stands null and void.

The Spotboye.com report cited a source as saying, “Deepak barely manages to enter his house. Shivani allows him to use only one room. Worse still, Shivani has strictly told the servants that they should neither give him food nor clean his room.”

The actor is said to be living with friends or in a paying guest accommodation. So, what caused troubled in the marriage?

Rumour has it that Shivani, a fashion designer, suspects Tijori of having an affair with a yoga instructor. An irate Shivani has now filed for maintenance under 125 CrPC (Code of Criminal Procedure) saying, "I am a deserted wife. I cannot maintain my expenses. My husband is liable to do the needful for me and my daughter."

On his part, Tijori has field a case of nullity against his wife. Tijori has reportedly alleged that his wife didn’t file for divorce from her first husband, thereby his marriage to her is null and void and so he can’t pay her maintenance. The couple has a daughter named Samara. 

As per Hindu law, a person cannot remarry without divorcing the previous spouse.

Tijori did not revert to our text messages. 

Tijori, who has been keeping a low profile, was last seen in Ram Gopal Varma's Department (2012).
