Lizzy is a former actress who first met the filmmaker in Thiruvananthapuram on the sets of his 1984 film, Odaruthammava Alariyam. Industry watchers say that it was love at first sight for the two. The actress went on to act in 22 films directed by Priyadarshan and married him in December 1990. After her marriage, Lizzy gave up her acting career and changed her name to Lakshmi. The couple has two children — daughter Kalyani and son Siddharth — both studying abroad.

Interestingly, Lizzy — who is the managing director of Four Frames Sound Company and Four Frames Entertainment — is also the co-owner of the Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) team, Kerala Strikers. A source says, “Lizzy was missing from the cricket match held earlier this month in Kochi and the organisers were told that she isn’t keeping well.

However, Priyadarshan was present at the match and he even dedicated their team’s victory to his wife Lizzy.’’ Though there is no clarity about the reason behind the couple’s separation, some sources say that a financial dispute has caused the split, while others say that the filmmaker’s liaison with an actress has fuelled the fire.
