Last week all the “gossip medias” overflowed with a breaking news about famous tele drama actress Nehara Pieris. The news said that Nehara’s husband has hit Nehara’s father with an ash tray over an argument of Nehara’s secret affair with an another famous tele drama actor Menaka Rajapaksha. Menaka and Nehara were the main characters of the hit tele drama “Muthu Kirilli”. The two of them acting as brother and sister in the ongoing tele drama “Amanda”. In most recently concluded “Raigam Tele Awards 2011” Nehara and Menaka were chosen as the most famous tele drama actress and actor.
Giving an interview to a media Nehara confirmed that she has gained legal action to divorce her husband Nirmal. Two of them were married after an affair of two years and had several arguments during that period.
“My parents were initially against our marriage because of the clashes we had, but I had my own ideas as we were in love for a long period. The arguments increased after the marriage and we were so closed to be divorced couple of times, but being a popular star among the general public I had to act in a responsible manner”
“ Nirmal cannot control his anger” said Nehara. “There are ups and downs in any family, but as an adults we should be able to solve through discussion. At least I thought that way, but all of my efforts were in vain and I finally decided to go to my parents house”.
According to Nehara , she was living with her parents for the last couple of weeks.
“My parents asked Nirmal to come our place to discuss the matter on several occasions, but he didn’t come. That’s why I went to meet him to our house with my father,Nirmal’s younger brother and with a family friend that day. He burst in to anger while discussing and threw a ash tray towards my father. He was injured and hospitalized. If he can treat my father that way I wonder what he will do to me”
Replying to the rumors about the affair she is having with actor Menaka Rajapaksha , “ Menaka is one of my best friends in the industry, I use to talk to him about my matters as were friends even before I met Nirmal. He is my best friend ever since we acted in “Muthu Krilli” and now in “Amanda” Nirmal and I had arguments even before our marriage, so there is nothing to do with my friendship with Menaka to this.
“ I have sought legal advice for our divorce. Nirmal has threatened to tarnish my reputation and popularity ,but I am ready to face him. Nobody can let me down as long as my parents and fans are with me. They can understand the truth.”
When asked about her future plans she said, the shooting of “Amanda” is over and “Ruwan Maliga” shooting is still on. “ I was offered with more tele dramas than ever. I have no fear about rumors. I will proceed stronger than before.”
