Pawan Kalyan is one of the many Tollywood stars who found their better half in less popular individuals. Although Anna Lezhneva has numerous acting credits, her resume is still a far cry from her husband’s which stretches beyond acting to other areas like politics, charity and he has also served as brand ambassador for many big brands.
Inasmuch as Pawan is the famous half of the two, the focus in this piece is his wife who found love very far from home. Here are the facts you would like to know about Anna Lezhneva.
Anna Lezhneva – Biography
A Russian national, Anna Lezhneva was born on August 3rd in 1980. Unfortunately, the Russian beauty is among the celebrities who maintain a private profile despite all the media attention that follow their daily activities. Consequently, no information has been shared on the details of her birth family and what growing up was like for the actress. If she attended any formal school, Anna is yet to enlighten us about it.
Seemingly, there was no media attention on her before she married Indian actor Pawan Kaylan. That is how she was able to live her life away from the spotlight, even though she has a career in acting.
Facts About Pawan Kalyan’s Wife
Even though Anna Lezhneva is heralded in several quarters as an actress and model, she does not have much in her collection of acting projects. The only movie she takes credit for is ‘Teen Maar’ where she played a minor role and also got to meet and fell head over heels in love with Pawan who played the male lead character.
Asides the foregoing, no other career achievement can be attributed to Anna. There is also no record of any brand she has modeled for. This either means she is still building her career or prefers to keep her records hidden from the media eye.
- Relationship with Powan Kalyan
In 2011, while shooting Teen Maar, Anna met Pawan on the set of the movie and they hit it off without much ado. This despite the fact Anna was portraying an insignificant role in the movie while Powan took the male lead character, thus, it wasn’t on-screen chemistry-turned real for them.
When the cameras stopped rolling on Teen Maar, their love continued to grow stronger. Soon after they wrapped things up at the movie location, a lovestruck Anna Lezhneva immigrated from Russia to India where she moved in with her beau and even adhered to Indian traditions. She really made herself at home and it didn’t come as a surprise when they got married in 2013 in Hyderabad, India. Pawan was still married to his second wife Renu Desai by the time he started dating Anna and later took her as his third wife.
When news of Pawan’s third marriage broke, there were rumours that he wedded Dana Marks, his Teen Maar co-star. Coincidentally, a picture of the two sitting close to each other at the audio launch of the film made it to the headlines and didn’t help matters. Notwithstanding, it has been confirmed that it was Anna Lezhneva, not Dana that Pawan exchanged marriage vows with.
Pawan Kalyan and Anna Lezhneva are parents to two children. Their daughter Polena Anjana Pawanova came first while their second child, a son named Mark Shankar Pawanovich, was born in October 2017. Their children are still young and it’s not known if they will follow their parents’ career path.
In addition to the children he has with Anna, Pawan has two more from his previous relationships. Akira Nandan, his first son was born in 2004 while he was still married to Renu Desai. Pawan and Desai later had a daughter named Aadhya Konidala in 2010.
Considering her scanty filmography, Anna Lezhneva is not expected to wield much fortune as an actress. Her net worth is not up for public scrutiny but her husband has enough money to give her and their children a life of luxury. The family currently resides in Hyderabad, India where Anna seems to have done a good job adjusting to the culture of the people.
