Singer Suchitra Krishnamoorthi has filed a case against her ex-husband, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, over a property dispute. Suchitra claims that the property rightfully belongs to their daughter, Kaveri, but has been rented to actor Kabir Bedi and his wife, Parveen.

She told SpotboyE, “I really don’t want to elaborate on this as it’s too stressful for me.” According to the report, she took the legal step after Kabir refused to move out of the house, claiming that he had a rent agreement in place. Fearing for Kaveri’s well-being, she filed the case. Suchitra and Shekhar tied the knot in 1997 and got divorced in September, 2006.

Kaveri is a singer, and stays with her mother. Reacting to the developments, she said in a statement, “Over the years I have stayed away from commenting on any and every conversation pertaining to my parents and their dealings with each other. But yesterday a media report carried my name in the context of a case that is between my Mother and my father. I would like to set the record straight, I have a very strong and loving relationship with my father, Mr Shekhar Kapur. I am disappointed that my name was dragged in this manner. As a 19-years-old I know I can speak for myself. I have nothing to do with this case or any case between my parents.”

Shekhar is himself mulling legal action against the makers of the recently announced Mr India trilogy. The director and original actor, Anil Kapoor, were reportedly not consulted by filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar, before he announced the planned series on Twitter recently. He told Mid-Day, “Where is the director’s ownership on the material he has created? It (the reboot) is based on what I have created. Now, I am in touch with lawyers all over the world to (tackle) the issue.”
