A few days back, the Telugu and Tamil media was abuzz with reports that actress Nayantara and Prabhu deva had ‘secretly’ married in Mumbai. The reason given for Prabhu’s un-publicized wedding was that Prabhu deva was apprehensive of the ‘reaction’ of his grown-up kids through his first wife Ramalat on seeing the invitation of their father’s ‘re-marriage’.
The duo has now announced that they are likely to wed sometime this month, denying that the marriage had already taken place ‘secretly’. Prabhu deva parted ways with Ramalat, his wife of 15 years, after developing a ‘soft corner’ for actress Nayantara during the making of his directorial venture ‘Villu’ in which she played the heroine opposite Vijay. The ‘soft corner’ was due to the fact that Nayan had just ended her stormy relationship with actor Simbu.
Ramalat opposed the marriage tooth and nail but was pacified by Prabhu deva who agreed to part away with huge sums of cash and property to get Ramalat agreed to a mutual divorce. The Family Court in Chennai granted the divorce a couple of months back, freeing Prabhu deva from whatever matrimonial bond he had with Ramalat. Later, Nayantara embraced Hinduism at Chennai’s Arjaya Samaj to get married to Prabhu as per Hindu rituals.
It is now informed that the marriage would be held in the second fortnight of September and that the venue would either be Mumbai or Hyderabad. The marriage would be a grand affair, it is learnt.
