Serious differences had reportedly cropped up between Indrani Mukerjea and her husband Peter, who wanted to move back to India from the UK and take another plunge in the media business, something Indrani was not keen to do.
According to a report by a news website on Friday, Peter was unhappy as he apparently didn’t have much control over the money from the couple’s previous media venture. Someone else, perhaps Indrani, controlled the funds.
Peter had a lengthy conversation with an investor about returning to India and becoming the face of a new company, the report said. He told the investor that he was “lonely and failing”. The investor made several calls to Indrani to discuss the same.
Vidhie, Indrani’s daughter from her marriage with Kolkata businessman Sanjeev Khanna, was another source of marital discord between the Mukerjeas. Indrani and Peter, the report said, had fights over Vidhie’s social life that had “gone haywire.” Vidhie lives in the UK.
