“Diana is no more, Nayanthara to be known from now on. For some personal reasons I have followed Hinduism”, expressed Nayanthara while speaking to her fans.
Nayanthara, who changed her name so for films, is a Christian by birth, and was earlier referred to as Diana Mariam Kurian, before her foray into the film industry. The latest is that, she has changed her religious faith to Hinduism on Sunday morning at a temple in North Chennai. After the rituals at the temple, she was given a certificate of conversion to Hinduism, with her Hindu name as Nayanthara.
Although the actress refused to spill the beans on the reason behind this name change and whether it was a move for her wedding with Prabhu Deva, she expressed that due to personal reasons she has become a Hindu by religion now.
Looks like we will soon hear Nayan – Prabhu’s wedding bells ring…
