The Family Man actress Priyamani’s marriage with Mustafa Raj has been questioned by his former wife Ayesha, by saying that he is still married to her. In 2013, Mustafa and Ayesha got separated and he got married to Priyamani in 2017.
Mustafa Raj has told that this as an extortion attempt as he provides child support. He and Ayesha together have two children.
Speaking to a leading daily, Mustafa said “The charges against me are false. I am paying the children’s maintenance to Ayesha regularly. She is simply trying to extort money from me”. He asked about why she had to wait this long to complaint, which also included domestic violence.
Ayesha had told that “Mustafa is still married to me. Mustafa and Priyamani’s marriage is invalid. We have not even filed for divorce and while marrying Priyamani, he declared in the court that he was a bachelor”.
About the delay, she said “As a mother of two children, what can you do? One tries to sort it out amicably but only when it doesn’t work out, some steps need to be taken because you don’t want to lose out on time which he has been using against me now”.
Priyamani, cousin of actress Vidya Balan, became popular after appearing in ‘The Family Man’, the Amazon Prime Video series, alongside Manoj Bajpayee. She has appeared in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada films. She has also received a National Film Award.
In a recent interview, Priyamani had addressed Mustafa as her lucky charm. She told Bollywood Bubble, “Personally for me, I have become busier after marriage. So I always say I think Mustafa has been my lucky charm. I thank god that I go a wonderful partner like that who supports me in my work”.
