Karisma Kapoor and her Delhi-based businessman husband, Sunjay Kapur, are not to end the year with closure of their decade-old marriage after all.
The couple, who filed a mutual consent divorce petition in the Mumbai family court, disagreed on some issues at their final hearing a few days ago. The two were packed off by the judge to work out a settlement by February.
The celebrity couple were present in court along with their lawyers before principal judge Laxmi Rao on what was meant to be their date to get the decree — just before Christmas and in time to bring in the New Year with, perhaps, new partners — but both failed to agree to the terms of a trust being set up for the welfare of their two minor children, a nine-year-old daughter and a much-younger son.
Karisma is represented by divorce lawyer Kranti Sathe, while Sunjay had two top lawyers coming in from Delhi.
Karisma wanted to have more say and control over the trust than she was getting and Sunjay was unwilling to let go of his control, it was learnt.
