The ‘Power Star‘, Pawan Kalyan first met Anna Lezheneva in 2011 when the duo was working together in the film ‘Teen Maar’.During this time, Pawan Kalyan was going through a difficult phase in his personal life. He was dealing with a divorce with his second wife Renu Desai, whom he was in a new-term relationship with. However, fate had other plans for the Jana Sena Party (JSP) leader as he officially got a divorce from Renu in 2012. Meanwhile, Pawan and Anna grew closer, and roughly two years after meeting each other, they finally got married on September 20, 2013.
While Anna Lezheneva is a Russian former actress and Pawan Kalyan is a Telugu superstar, the couple accepted their cultural differences and lifestyles quite well. Pawan even adopted Anna’s daughter from her previous marriage, named Polena Anjana Pawanova, and she was raised along with his three other children. In 2017, Anna and Pawan welcomed their first child together, a baby boy whom they named Mark Shankar Pawanovich. Anna, who is Pawan Kalyan’s third wife, too has been a big supporter of him in his political journey.
