First Wife Nandini

With his Telugu film Akkada Ammayi Ikkada Abbayi Pawan Kalyan made his acting debut in the year 1996. In May 1997 shortly after the film's modest success Pawan married Nandini a 19-year-old woman. According to many stories in newspapers and on television it was an arranged marriage. Even today nobody knows why Pawan got married immediately following the debut of his first movie. However everyone was persuaded and pleased for the young actor because his marriage was displaying all the characteristics of a happy marriage in its early stages. The actor's professional career was achieving new heights at the same time that he was taking on new film ventures.

However after a few prosperous years of happiness the marriage of Pawan and Nandini had begun to show signs of trouble. There were many rumours in the media at the time that Pawan's glamorous lifestyle was simply too much for his young wife Nandini. After finally filing for divorce in 2007 the two received their divorce decree in 2008 following a protracted legal battle. The two had permanently split after Pawan paid his ex-wife Nandini alimony in the amount of five crores.

Second Wife Renu Desai

When he revealed that he had moved in with actress Renu Desai in 2001 Pawan stunned the entire South industry. The actor had begun discussing his live-in romance in the media and had unmistakably displayed all signs of ending his marriage to wife Nandini. No one was aware of the storm that was about to enter Nandini's life although Pawan's disarray was a subject of frequent discussion.

2004 saw the announcement of Pawan Kalyan and Renu Desai's new status as delighted parents of a baby boy. Yes! You read that right; when this happened nobody expected Pawan and Nandini to still be married. The couple ultimately filed for divorce in 2007 after three years of silence and following a year-long legal struggle they were granted divorce in 2008.


The actor announced his marriage after the media and legal battles over Pawan and Renu's relationship and the couple got married on January 28 2009. The lives of Renu and Pawan were perfect and soon they were the proud parents of a baby girl.

Things between Pawan and Renu began to go wrong after a few happy years of marriage but another woman wasn't the cause. This time their breakup was brought on by his brother Nagendra Babu's financial crisis and his desire to support and love him. The fact that Pawan was providing support for his older brother Nagendra from all sides had not pleased Pawan's wife who feared her husband would give all of his money to his brother. When it was revealed in 2011 that Renu had moved to her parent's house in Pune with her children the arguments reached a completely new level.

Third Wife Anna Lezhneva

Professionally Pawan Kalyan was working on Teen Maar the Telugu remake of the popular Bollywood film Love Aaj Kal while he was doing everything he could to save his marriage to Renu Desai in 2011. A stunning Russian actress and model named Anna Lezhneva was part of the film's great cast and had a little role. However it wasn't until 2012 following Pawan's divorce that her name began to be associated with the actor. Additionally there were rumors in 2013 that Pawan and Anna were planning to wed on September 30.

However there were no large-scale festivities and the majority of media outlets reported that the couple chose a private wedding ceremony. During the early years of their marriage the pair made a very small number of public appearances. However Anna had begun to accompany Pawan at public events award ceremonies and even some of his political parties over time. The couple gave birth to their first child a little prince they named Mark Shankar Pawanovich in the year 2017. For those who were unaware Anna had already given birth to a young daughter from her first failed marriage Polena Anjana Pawanova. However alongside his other three children Pawan raised Polena as his daughter. The actor has since gotten married to Anna and they've been doing a lot of humanitarian work.
