Friday, 16th April 2010
Sunanda, who keeps her father’s name as her surname, was married to Sanjay Raina, who is one of India’s first Punjabi rap singers.
Sanjay, then a resident of the posh Jawahar Nagar in Srinagar, did his schooling at the prestigious Burn Hall School, Sanawar, and later shifted to Delhi where he graduated from the Institute of Hotel Management, Pusa.
Sunanda was a student at the Government College for Women in Srinagar in the mid-80s. She later did a hotel management course and briefly worked in a hotel in Srinagar.
Their marriage, which took place in the late 1980s, did not last long with the couple divorcing in the early 1990s. Incidentally, Sanjay and Sunanda’s families migrated from Kashmir after the onset of militancy two decades ago.
After her divorce, Sunanda married a Kerala businessman, Sujeet Menon, who was a dealer in firefighting equipments and a Dubai-based event manager.
