Pawan Kalyan is married to Russian Anna Lezhneva

DC | U. Sudhakar Reddy | December 30, 2013, 13.12 pm IST
Third time’s a charm: Pawan and Anna have been in a relationship for the past two years
Third time’s a charm: Pawan and Anna have been in a relationship for the past two years

The year’s biggest Tollywood wedding was witnessed by just a handful. Deccan Chronicle can confirm that Tollywood star Pawan Kalyan is now married to long-time partner Anna Lezhneva.

The union was solemnised at a sub-registrar’s office at Erragadda (formerly the Banjara Hills sub-registrar office), which issued a marriage certificate on September 30, of Konidela Pawan Kalyan marrying Anna.

This is Pawan’s third marriage. The actor first married Nandini in 1997. He later wed Tollywood actress and co-star Renu Desai in 2009, but that marriage, too, fell apart.

Sources claim, he has been in a relationship with Anna and the two finally made it official on September 30, this year.

Hyderabad South joint sub-registrar M.Z. Basith Siddiqui said this to DC:


“On August 30, the couple approached me with an intention of marriage. I took their application and put up a notice, with their passport photographs displayed on the notice board, seeking objections and complaints (part of procedure). In the 30 days, there were no complaints or objections... so, I issued them a marriage certificate on September 30 after solemnising the marriage.”

Pawan Kalyan and Anna Lezhneva paid Rs 1,000 as marriage fee.

Siddiqui added: “The marriage is under Special Marriage Act 1954 as it is an inter-caste marriage. There is no case of conversion here. I issued the notice, under Section 13 of the Special Marriage Act and later, solemnised it. Pawan and Anna exchanged garlands in my office in the presence of three witnesses and took oath. I had also checked whether they were there willfully, or under influence. Both were willing and in a sound state of mind.”

The official also said there were no objections from Pawan’s second wife Renu Desai.

“During the one-month notice, she didn’t raise any objections.” The three witnesses, named on the form, are all former managers of Pawan Kalyan.

They are Mohammed Abdul, son of Mohammed Abdul Hafeez a resident of Swarajnagar, N. Srinivas, son of N.V.R. Naidu, a resident of Mahalaxmi Estates a businessman, and B. Anandam, son of B. Chelan, a resident of Park View Castle, an art director.

Pawan’s exes

This is not the first time that Pawan Kalyan’s personal life has made headlines. The actor has been notoriously secret about his relationships but, over time... details did leak out.

  • The actor first married Nandini, a native of Vizag in 1997, but separated from her, after two years of their marriage.
  • The actor then married model Renu Desai in 2009. Desai was his female lead in the film Badri (2009) and Johnny (2003). They have a son, Akira  Nandan (born 2004) and a daughter, Aadhya (born 2010).
  • But in 2008, Pawan’s ex-wife Nandini surfaced again to file a case against the actor. She claimed that he had married the second time without a proper divorce.

A marriage certificate with the Bridegroom spelled as 'BRIDGROOM'; and used Pawan Kalyan's screen name in the certificate with a mis-spelled surname. How funny!!??!! And people like you believing this and commenting on this. Use some Common'sense' brother!!! :)

It is quite amusing to watch neanderthals like you assassinating the characters of other people without knowing what happened. If Pawan married a third wife or a 10th, what is it to you? Delve into your own home first.

If this is real this is going to damage his future cinema and political career drastically. If it is fake then he better clear up this misunderstanding as fast as possible. First of all 2nd marriage in Tollywood is a big taboo and whoever ended up in divorce usually lost most of their celebrity glamour. One very well known actor who lost that glamor is actor Kamal Hassan. He use to be one of the top actors in both Telugu and Tamil but after all his flings he lost nearly all that glamor but Pawan Kalyan on the other made it out without affecting career even with all the slander from the opposition not because of Pawan Kalyan but because of his wife Renu Desai who impressed all with her homely house wife nature and her fluency in the Telugu language.

Kamal Hasan is one of the legends of film industry and pls do not link their personal life with profession. We respect these only for their acting, even if he does 3 or even 5 marriages, that is none of our business until or unless he cheats somebody and if both he and his previous do not have any objection in his marriage and ready to divide, we cannot link this with their profession, since even we do not know what are their personal issues and this is completely unprofessional to enter into some others personal life, thanking you.

Pawan Kalyan is a comedian LOL. Why did he get married to a Russian who doesn't understands Telugu? he made a mistake before, and looks like this will be his second mistake. Or maybe he wants all fans to follow him and marry Russian girls, Guess all the future generations of Telugu people will have Fair Skin and Blonde hair....Good going Pawan.....keep it up.

Pawan kalyan ,always says he wanna do something for the society . he is such a great person who became role model for the men and the society marrying regional,national and international ladies. You are the man who says so many things good and doing things opposite what you mean. In one function he said he dont know the meaning of PAWANISM and satarically said "helping others". But pawan kalyan is right Helping others by hurting so many . This is true pawanism

Hey... guys who have something to say about PK's so-called 3rd marriage. First, he can marry any number of times. Second, he did not commit a crime. Third, he did not marry your mother!!! So, why don't you shut up and mind your own business of cleaning latrines.
