As tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi walked the aisle with actor Lara Dutta last week, so did his ex-wife, model Shvetha Jaishankar. Shvetha, in fact, chose just the morning after Mahesh’s wedding to tie the knot with Chennai-based boyfriend, Raghu Kailas, who runs an export firm.
On Tuesday, the blog Fashionscandal.com reported the news of the Shvetha-Raghu marriage.
“We have married. We will be sending a statement later,” Kailas told us.Though Jaishankar did not respond to calls, in an earlier interview to HT City, she had said, "I am fortunate to find someone special and nice like him (Kailas). He is affectionate and makes me laugh. He cooks for me and is from the same community, so it is nice and comfortable with him."
Shvetha and Mahesh, who were married for seven years, went through a bitter divorce in July 2010, after Mahesh told Shvetha he wanted out. Shvetha had alleged that Lara-Mahesh dated while Mahesh was still married, and that he could do to Lara what he did to her.
