Karisma Kapoor With Sandeep Toshniwal
Earlier this year in April, we told you that after
keeping Sandeep hanging for their divorce for the longest time, his wife Dr
Ashrita had finally initiated the preliminary proceedings...
Toshniwal had filed for divorce in 2010 and since then
the duo has been fighting an ugly battle in the court. It was
only earlier this year that the two parties agreed for a mutual settlement as
a part of which the couple's two daughters, aged 12 and 9, will get Rs 3 crore
each, while Ashrita will receive Rs 2 crore, along with the flat in which she
currently lives. The children’s custody will be with Ashrita.
The former couple had decided to file divorce with ‘mutual consent’ but just
days later Ashrita appeared in court and made it clear that she will not comply with
the demand to declare the investments she makes with the amount
being paid to her as alimony. Naturally, ‘mutual consent’ fell through and the
divorce was back to square one. But things changed again in the next court
hearing. Ashrita, who was earlier not agreeing to declare the investments on
the money being paid as maintenance to their two daughters, acquiesced to it in
the last proceedings.
Ashrita appeared for cross-examination for just one day.
An argument was held by both that the other approached for a settlement. After
the mediation ended, Toshniwal asked for some time to figure out his financial
Toshniwals home, which was jointly owned by the two, was sold and both got 50
percent share. Ashrita then moved into another house. Reportedly,
Toshniwal has been asked to pay the remaining instalments for the house Ashrita
is currently staying in.
Last week, all the arrangements were worked out and yesterday the court finally
granted them the divorce.
Now let’s see if Karisma and Sandeep indeed tie the knot!
