The rumor that Gamini Fonseka's marriage shattered because of me is a falsehood, says actress Angela Seneviratne.
She has revealed this in an interview to Silumina supplement Rasaduna.
Angela has stated that her relationship with Gamini started when he was living alone in Kadugannawa.
She has got the opportunity of maintaining a close relationship with him as he selected her for a character in the film ' Koti Waligaya' directed by Gamini.
Angela has revealed that he proposed to her after learning all about her. Since her marriage was also a failure she has agreed and they have enjoyed 8 years of marriage bliss.
She has further stated Sumithra (Teena , Gamini's first wife) always loved me. She was involved in the marriages of Kaushalya and Purnima, who are children my and Gamini’s children , as if she is their own mother. She was there to fill the space left empty by Gamini's absence. Those days many attempted to break us up, but Teena akka (sister) is a person who had a very good understanding of me. When she passed away it was as if I lost my own sister, she added.
Angela who was living abroad has arrived in Sri Lanka and joined acting again on November 02 in the film 'Mother' produced by Prasanna Withanage.
