A marital storm buffeting a star couple is the staple of the Mollywood these days. The couple in question are Kamal 'kiss-crazy' Haasan and wife Sarika.
Rumors of an imminent parting of ways, reinforced by the celebrity duo's refusal so far to deny it, are doing the rounds of Tamil film world.
A fuming Sarika, enraged by Kamal's growing proximity to the reigning queen of Tamil screen Simran, is reported to have made the decisive move for divorce.
The Kamal-Simran 'love affair' is said to have begun during the shooting of Kamal's film Pammal K. Sambandhamand blossomed with the launching of his latest flick Panchatanthiramwhich too has Simran in the female lead.
Meanwhile, not everything is hunky dory with the actor's film career either. His much-trumpeted Abhaybit the box office dust. Another ambitious Kamal project titled Marudanayakam is in the doldrums too.
As if reel troubles were not enough, now the fabric of his real life is also coming apart, it seems. Mollywood is awaiting, with bated breath, the denouement of the Haasan household drama.
