Namitha has denied that she was involved in a ‘live-in’ relationship with veteran actor Sarath Babu, the who had rubbed shoulders with the likes of superstar Rajinikanth (in several films including Velaikkaran, Mullum Malarum & Annamalai) and Kamal Haasan.
Tollywood press was full of report that the 66-year old veteran was involved in a ‘live-in relationship’ with the 36-year old actress who was the dream-girl of Tamil youths till a few years back. Namitha was in the limelight for taking part and exiting after a few weeks in the first-ever edition of the Tamil reality ‘Bigg Boss’ show on a popular regional television channel hosted by Kamal Haasan.
The six-foot tall Engal Anna, Aei, Billa and Perumal actress hasn’t been favoured by Tamil film-makers for the past few years after she put on oodles of flesh around her waist. She, however, went on a crash-course in dieting and managed to knock off more than 20 kilos but still looked ‘huge’ enough to be paired up opposite many young and contemporary heroes.
The reports said that the unlikely duo of Sarath Babu and Namitha (the duo’s only similarity is that both are six-footers) have been involved in a live-in relationship for the past few years and would be getting married soon to give a meaning to their years of togetherness. When contacted, Namitha said that it was a false rumour as she wasn’t even aware of the existence of an actor by name Sarath Babu.
