Well she did mean every bit of her word when she earlier said, “I will make it a point to get what I want if I have made up my mind.” Earlier it was Ramlath who converted from Islam to Hinduism and now Prabhu Deva’s second wife too has opted for a ‘change of faith’. A Christian girl baptized Diana Mariam Kurian, from this day on she will be addressed with her screen name Nayanthara after the Kollywood glam doll decidedly converted to Hinduism.
On Sunday, yesterday morning 11 A.M. Nayanthara arrived at the Arya Samaj Temple at Waltax Road in Chennai. She observed the Vedic ritual of Shuddhi Karma purifying herself and the Homan ceremonial in front of the burning fire. Nayan also chanted hymns from as part of her soul-cleansing act, seeking blessings of the Holy one in this new journey. On completion of her holy duties she has now been issued a Certificate of Conversion to Hinduism and a change of name with Nayanthara being her official Hindu name. The actress successfully kept the shutterbugs at bay and only after rushing back home to Chennai did she confide, “Yes, I have become a Hindu and it’s my own personal decision. I went through the entire ceremony with passion and conviction.” Nayanthara will be next seen playing Sita in her upcoming telugu flick Sri Rama Rajyam.
So now that things are fairly settled can we hear the good news soon?
Nayan your ‘faithful’ fans are waiting!!!
