After a long-drawn bitter battle,Karisma Kapoor and her businessman husband Sunjay Kapur were finally granted divorce by the family court in Mumbai on Monday, ending 13 years of their marriage. The announcement came after the court accepted the settlement terms as agreed by both in theSupreme Court on April 8. The consent terms include the custody of their children — Samaira and Kiaan — which now rests with Karisma.
The couple’s Khar flat which was owned by Sunjay’s father, late Surinder Kapur, too has been transferred on Karisma’s name. Sunjay, has been granted visitation rights and he can spend two weekends a month in the city with his children. The kids will divide time between both parents during the vacations. When contacted, Karisma’s father Randhir Kapoor said, “I don’t want to comment on this. It’s a closed chapter for our family.”
Commenting on the issue earlier, he had said, “I don’t know if it is a good or a bad thing, but it is certainly a sad moment for our family. The only silver lining in this is that the children will spend most part of the year with us. Karisma has been through a rough time in the last few years. It has been emotionally draining for her. So, I hope the verdict offers her some respite.”
