The Family Man actor Priyamani has said that she and her husband Mustafa Raj are in a 'very secure' relationship. On Thursday, it was reported that Mustafa's ex-wife Ayesha alleged that Priyamani and Mustafa's marriage is 'invalid'. Ayesha claimed she is still married to Mustafa. Mustafa and Ayesha separated in 2013, and he married Priyamani in 2017.

Speaking to Bollywood Hungama Priyamani said, "Communication is the key. If you're asking about the relationship between me and Mustafa, by far... We are definitely very secure in our relationship, even though right now, he is in the US. He's working there. We make it a point that we talk to each other every day. If he's busy with work, he'll probably call me or text me once he's free. Or vice versa, if I'm busy with shooting, I would do that."

Ayesha had told The Times of India, "Mustafa is still married to me and his marriage with Priyamani is invalid. We have not even filed for divorce and while marrying Priyamani, he declared in the court that he was a bachelor."

When asked as to why she has spoken up after so many years Ayesha had said, "As a mother of two children, what can you do? One tries to sort it out amicably but only when it doesn't work out, some steps need to be taken because you don't want to lose out on time which he has been using against me now."

Ayesha and Mustafa have two children. Responding to the allegations Mustafa said it's an attempt at extortion, as he is providing child support.

"The charges against me are false. I am paying for the children's maintenance to Ayesha regularly. She is trying to extort money from me", he told The Times of India. He also asked why she waited so long to press charges, which include domestic violence.

Priyamani became known to audiences across the country after Amazon Prime Video's web show The Family Man. Prior to that, she had appeared in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam films. She has been awarded a National Film Award.
