Pawan married Jyoti in 2018 in a small ceremony in Ballia attended only by family and close friends. This is the actor’s second marriage. His first marriage to Neelam Singh ended in tragedy back in 2015 when Neelam killed herself.

As per a Navbharat Times report, appearing on behalf of Pawan, his lawyer Sudama Singh told the court that his client could not be present as he was busy shooting. He also stated that Pawan’s presence wasn’t needed for the hearing. The court has now asked Jyoti to file her statement in writing, following which Pawan will have to respond in writing as well.

Jyoti had filed for divorce in the family court in Arrah in October 2021, alleging Pawan verbally and physically abused her. As per the report in Navbharat Times, Jyoti had demanded alimony of 3.5 lakh per month. Pawan denied these allegations in a hearing in April this year. The previous hearing was in May when the court suggested counseling for the two. They had to appear for the same on June 21 but he didn’t.

Pawan Singh is one of the most popular Bhojpuri actors currently, having appeared in hits like Pratigya (2008), Saugandh Ganga Maiya Ke (2012) and Sher Singh (2019). He has received two International Bhojpuri Film Awards.
