It has been rumoured in Kollywood circles that Nayantara has married Vignesh Sivan, director of her upcoming film Naanum Rowdydhaan which releases in theaters today (coinciding with Ayudha Poojai), in secrecy. However, when queried about it, Sivan simply said that his personal matter won’t be a point of public discussion.
It may be recalled that Nayantara had announced her decision to quit films after her marriage to Prabhu Deva, with whom she fell in love years after her break-up with Simbu, was called off at the very last minute. She came back to films with a vengeance with back-to-back hits in the form of Ajith-starrer Arrambam and Atlee’s debut directorial venture Raja Rani in 2013.
Amid rumours of secret marriage to Nayantara during the shoot of Naanum Rowdydhaan a couple of months back, Sivan has now said that he didn’t want to disuss her personal life with anybody. “It’s a purely personal issue which I don’t want to discuss with others. Neither I nor Nayantara like it. Let’s talk about the film which releases on Wednesday.
“Dhanush is the producer but gave me complete freedom in making the film. Contrary to press reports, I never had any clash with him on the film’s budget. In fact, it is even reported that I’m a Malayalee; I don’t know why such things are written about me,” Sivan said.
