Telugu actor and Janasena party founder Pawan Kalyan is reportedly headed for a divorce putting an end to his marriage of ten years with his third wife Anna Lezhneva. As per reports, Anna has already moved back to Russia with their children. Pawan and Anna are "believed to be socially separated, though not legally." The actor is reportedly in touch with her and their kids via video calls.
While both parties are yet to make official statements, the rumours of their split were fuelled when Anna was absent during Varun Tej and Lavanya Tripathi’s engagement last month.
