Rumours about Prabhu Deva never appear to end. The bearded Prabhu Deva secured the much-needed divorce from his first wife Ramalath a few months back. At that time, it was said that Prabhu and Nayan might settle for a simple marriage and that the marriage would be held before August either in Tirupathi or in Mumbai.
In between, Nayan embraced Hinduism in order to facilitate a Hindu marriage. Readers might recall that Nayan born in an orthodox Christian family and was named Diana Mariam Kurian by her parents. She changed her name to Nayantara only after entering films. After becoming Hindu formally by getting ‘solemnised’ at Chennai’s Arya Samaj, Nayan has decided to retain ‘Nayantara’ as her name permanently.
Some time back, it was rumoured that the couple married secretly in Mumbai. Prabhu, all these months, didn’t say anything either about their relationship or about the impending marriage. Now he has come with a formal statement, released to the press through his PRO Nikhil.
“I have always been a very private person and never like to discuss my personal life. Yet, now I feel that there are too many things written and spoken about me and my marriage. I have been reading reports about the date, time, venue of my marriage to Nayanthara in newspapers and Internet.
“All I can to say is that as and when we get married, the date will be announced to the whole world. Nayanthara stopped signing films when she was at the pinnacle of her career for the sake of our love and we wanted to get married with the blessings of our parents. Even now, if some good role like the one in ‘Sri Ramarajyam’ are offered to her, she shall take up those roles till our wedding,” said the statement.
