August 9: The star couple Dileep and Manju Warrier has put an end to their fourteen years of married life. But they have not separated legally. Dileep and Manju Warrier were in news earlier for their divorce. But then, both of them did not respond to the rumours. Later it was reported that they dropped the decision due to the interference of their well-wishers and family.
According to reports, Dileep and Manju Warrier have now decided to get separated after having talks with their family and friends. Their daughter Meenakshi is staying with Dileep in their Villa at Kochi and Manju Warrier is staying with her parents. Dileep's relation with a popular Malayalam actress seems to be the major reason for the separation of the couple. Manju Warrier made a comeback through dance after taking the divorce decision. After that she became more popular with her Kalyan Ad, where Dileep was their earlier ambassador. Dileep did not turn out to accompany Manju to her shooting location neither to her dance programmes. In an interview for a magazine, Manju had stated that her decision of getting married was a hasty one. Dileep now stays near to the actress' villa, whom he is said to be dating. Dileep and Manju's friends claim that they were having plans for the separation ever since the so-called actress got her divorce. Sallapam was Dileep and Manju's first movie together. After that they were seen in movies like Ee Puzhayum Kadannu, Kudamattam and Thoovalkottaram.
