Anyone familiar with Indian politics or Bollywood films must have come in contact with the name Pawan Kalyan. The actor turned politician is among the many Bengali cinema stars who have been married a number of times before they were able to eventually find love. Kalyan would be hoping that his third marriage to Anna Lezhneva would last till death do them part. All the signs clearly indicate that this could be the case as the two appear to be very fond of each other, with Anna launching a career as an actress as she receives lessons from her award-winning partner.

Things To Know About Anna Lezhneva’s Acting Career

Although she has been seen in very few films, Anna Lezhneva is no doubt a good actress and one to watch out for. One of the Russian native’s most notable appearance is in Teen Maar, an Indian romantic drama film directed by Jayanth Paranjee and released on April 14, 2011. Anna was given a small character role in the film and she shared the screen with her husband Pawan Kalyan, Trisha Krishnan, Tanikella Bharani, Kriti Kharbanda and Mukesh Rishi, among others.

While Anna is said to have appeared in some other film projects, only the aforementioned film is known to the public. It is said that the gorgeous wife of Pawan Kalyan kicked off her acting career in the year 2003 and has since then gone on to play a few cameo roles in a number of South Indian movies.

At the moment, it’s still unclear how she began her acting career that she has since ended in order to focus more on her family. She is now mainly a homemaker, looking after her husband and kids.

Anna Lezhneva became a subject of public interest after her announced marriage to actor and movie director Pawan Kalyan. According to reports, the Russian native met the Telugu superstar and politician on the set of the 2011 movie, Teen Maar where Kalyan was the male lead actor. Although it is not yet confirmed if it was love at first sight, the two got talking and with time it developed into something more.

Anna and Pawan dated for two years, a time during which they were involved in a live-in relationship. They subsequently welcomed their first child together before making their relationship official after exchanging marital vows in an Indian traditional wedding. The marriage took place in Erragadda, Hyderabad, India, in September 2013 even though at that time the actor was still legally married to his second wife, Renu Desai.

Renu is an actress, film director and producer who is best known for her works in Badri, James Pandu, Johnny, Ishq Wala Love Gudumba Shankar, and Mangalashtak Once More. She got married to Pawan Kalyan in January 2009 but the marriage lasted for only two years before they signed divorce papers in 2011. Divorce proceedings were eventually finalized in the following year.

Prior to Pawan’s marriage to the actress and film producer, he was married to a woman identified as Nandini in 1997. Like the second one, his first marriage lasted for two years before it ended in divorce in 1999.

Despite having his fair share of failed marriages, the award-winning actor has moved on to establish a blissful marriage with Anna Lezhneva. The cute couple is often seen together at important events. Anna’s husband, who is Hindu, has been spotted with his wife attending mass at St. Mary’s Basilica Church, Karnataka, India. The duo and their children live happily in their home in Hyderabad.
