Filmmaker Aditya Chopra, who directed blockbusters like
Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
, has filed a divorce petition before a family court in Mumbai by mutual consent with wife Payal Khanna.
The application, which was heard by Principal Judge Anand Nirgude about two months ago, has been kept pending for the mandatory six month period granted to the couple to reconsider their decision.
The mandatory period required for Aditya, son of renowned director Yash Chopra, and Payal, will get over this May.
The application has to be heard again after six months of filing the application for divorce by mutual consent. It will come up after this period is over but not later than 18 months after the filing of the same, said a highly placed source in the family court.
