Sudeep and Priya had filed a divorce petition with mutual consent in the family court and they were supposed to appear before the court on 9th September 2016. But Sudeep did not appear before the court. Sudeep’s advocate representing the case has announced the case would now be resolved mutually by the couple itself.
Sources from Sandalwood say that V Ravichandran has played an integral part in this reunion by counselling the couple to reconsider their divorce petition. In 2014 Sudeep had produced Kannada movie 'Manikya' and had given a major role to Ravichandran. Ravichandran was also looking for big break as most of his films were falling flat at the box office then. 'Manikya' turned out to be a huge success and it gave a good jump to Ravichandran's career too. Since then the duo became close friends.
Ravichandran's close friends revealed that he too was distressed ever since the news of Sudeep’s family crisis came to light. When Sudeep announced that he is headed for splitsville with Priya by giving compensation of 19 crore rupees, Ravichandran became active in the family matter of Sudeep. A few weeks ago Ravichandran met Sudeep and advised him to reconsider his decision. He had advised Sudeep that thousands of fan followers are being influenced by him and are learning from him, a man of such stature should set a good example to his fans. He spoke to Priya also over the telephone and advised her the same.
It is said that since Sudeep had a high regard towards Ravichandran, he adhered his advice. Besides all this, his affection towards Sanvi, daughter of Sudeep and Priya, also made him change his decision.
