Jyothirmayi has been granted divorce. The actress was married to Nishanth Kumar even before she entered filmdom but their relationships strained when Jyothirmayi started to act in glamorous roles. This is said to have created a rift between the couple and they filed for divorce.
Following this, the family court granted divorce as all efforts for reconciliation through counseling failed. Jyothirmayi, who has acted in films like Thalai Nagaram, Nan Avan Illai and Vedigundu Murugesan, has said that she would henceforth concentrate in acting.
