It is rumoured in sections of Kollywood that Arya is in love with Nayantara, his co-star in films such as Bas Engira Bhaskaran, Arrambam and Raja Rani.
Arya and Nayantara appeared to be very close off-screen during the 2013 release of their Raja Rani. The promotional events in connection with the film invariably featured the duo together, giving an impression to critics and their respective fans that they had fallen in love with each other. However, they were always thought of by many as an ideal pair.
Arya, known for his romantic interludes, hasn’t been seriously involved with any actress in his decade-long career. Nayantara, on the other hand, has had two well-publicized bitter experiences of what love could be and is obviously too apprehensive to commit herself to a third affair.
In a couple of places in his latest film Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga, Arya (his character in the film, of course!) casually states that he needed an ideal girl like Nayantara as his life-partner.
It is said that the on-screen dialogue is only an expression of his off-screen wishes which have bee conveyed to the actress who is reportedly weighing the options of entering into a long-time association with Arya.
