Sources claim Keerti wanted to start a chain of beauty parlours across the country and even host a talk show on television as she had given up her acting career and wanted to do something constructive with her time. She wanted her husband to help fund these projects and start the business as soon as possible. Unfortunately, Sumanth, unlike his well-to-do star uncle, is still working hard to make it big in the industry. Ironically, this will be the second divorce in the Akkineni family. Actor Nagarjuna separated from his first wife, Lakshmi, daughter of film producer Ramanaidu.
When we tried contacting Sumanth for his version, the actor refused to comment on his marital status. Keerti meanwhile has taken off to Bangalore to spend time with her mother who lives there. Her sister-in-law Shilpa Reddy says she has nothing to do with the issue but concedes, “Nothing has been decided as yet.” The latest rumour doing the rounds is that Keerti allegedly wants to give the marriage another shot but her husband Sumanth is keen on a separation and is not willing to forgive and forget.
