Not all seems well in Cupid’s celebrity universe. Close on the heels of speculation that actor Chitrangda Singh ,37 and her golfer husband Jyoti Randhawa, 41, have filed for divorce in a Gurgaon court come tabloid reports claiming that tennis star Leander Paes, 39, and his partner, Art Of Living instructor Rhea Pillai, 48, are headed for a split. While it has until now been known that the pair tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in 2005, a source close to the couple says, “They are not married. They have a child together and live together.”
While Paes and Rhea have not commented on the issue, Chitrangda’s spokesperson told media that the actor had visited the court to settle a property dispute instead.
There were also recent rumours that there was turbulence in the two-year-old marriage of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, 40, and wife, actor Kalki Koechlin, 29, even as the latter denied the news. Also, soon after these rumours, Kalki gave an interview saying that she and Anurag were off to an undisclosed location to ring in their second anniversary.
Actor-couple Ranvir Shorey, 40, and Konkona Sensharma, 33, who separated last year, are also speculated to be headed for a divorce. The couple has a one-year-old son, Haroon.
