Though they looked like an ideal couple, differences arose between the two and they decided to amicably separate in 2002.[2] Revathy and Suresh Menon then filed separate petitions, seeking mutual split, before the court. On 22 April 2013 a family court in Chennai granted them mutual divorce considering the fact that they had been living separately for the past 10 years. Revathi said in an interview that they would remain good friends even after the divorce.[3]
