Actor Prakash Raj has always played every role with perfection. Be it be a role of villain or a comedian, he has always kept the audiences glued to the screen with his perfect timing and flawless acting skills.
However, his personal life seems to be far from perfect. The actor has been married twice and is a proud father of two daughters and one son. Raj married Tamil movie actress Lalitha Kumari in 1994. Soon, they were blessed with a beautiful daughter but things went wrong after the untimely demise of their younger son, Sidhu, in 2004.
After the son’s death, the couple went through some troubled times and drifted apart, especially Raj. Soon, the couple filed for a divorce and separated their ways after many years of marital bliss. Although, Lalitha wanted Prakash Raj to stay and was willing to work on the marriage, Raj was apparently too traumatized to stay in one that made him think of his child.
Nine months after his divorce with Lalitha, Prakash Raj married a famous Bollywood choreographer, Pony Verma. The duo had a simple Punjabi wedding and were blessed by Raj’s family which included his mother, sisters, brothers, etc.
Despite the vast age difference of 12 years, Raj said:
“it is reinvigorating to have a “young and beautiful” woman by his side, and that some of her energy transfers to him enabling him a new lease on life of sorts.”
The actor was last seen as a villain in the movie ‘Golmaal 3’ with Ajay Devgn, Kunal Khemu, Arshad Warsi, Shreyas Talpade and Tushar Kapoor. The national award winner has become a familiar face in Bollywood and in south movie industry.
