Lyricist Thamarai is in a fix. Undoubtedly, one of Kollywood’s best, when it comes to penning songs of love, hatred and broken relationships, her exceptional work for Director Gautham Menon’s movies (Filmfare Award for Best Lyricist – Vaaranam Aayiram & Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa) has won her many hearts. Suffering a failed marriage Thamarai had married one Thiyagu, sharing common interests and actively participating in view of the Ezham issue together.
Thiyagu, who held the general secretary post at the Tamil National Independence Association (TNIA) was sacked from his post recently. He has been a pillar of strength for Thamarai, as she has spoken about their love exclusively in her interviews. The news of the post taken away, came hard on the couple, as Thiyagu’s contributions were termed negligible by the TNIA committee. They accused him of showing up only to give interviews and nothing more than that. Ever since he lost the post, Thiyagu has disappeared from the scene and none of his colleagues in the political or media circles is aware about his whereabouts. Many doubt that the former general secretary was in love with a lady from Kollimalai, and eloped with her soon after. His wife Thamarai is in a state of shock and is totally clueless as to why her husband absconded, losing his job. That too with another lady.
