Orissa High Court granted divorce to actor-turned-politician Anubhav Mohanty from his actress wife Varsha Priyadarshin

Cuttack:21/12/23: The Orissa High Court on Thursday granted divorce to actor-turned-politician Anubhav Mohanty from his actress wife Varsha Priyadarshini.

While allowing the celebrity couple to part ways, the HC overturned the ruling of the Cuttack family court that had earlier rejected the divorce petition of Anubhav.

Hearing the petition filed by Anubhav challenging the verdict of Cuttack family court, the High Court quashed the lower court’s order of September, 2023.

Stating that the main grievance of the BJD MP was non-consummation of marriage, Anubhav’s counsel said the High Court allowed the divorce of the couple after taking into account the evidence.

Noting that the appellant has now got justice, he said there was no ruling on alimony.
Notably, the Family Court had on September 22 rejected Mohanty’s divorce petition. It had also rejected the plea for restitution of conjugal rights filed by Varsha. Mohanty had then moved the High Court on October 17 challenging the family court’s verdict.
The actor had alleged that Varsha refused for consummation of their marriage and caused mental cruelty to him by her conduct towards him and his family members.
