It’s like saying – such was the flower power which attracted many a bee!
Well, Nayanthara was in a relationship with Silambarasan (aka Simbu), Prabhu Deva and Vignesh Shivan. Though there were rumors about V. Shivan and the Lady SuperStar splitting up. But the going seems pretty steady in their relationship as of now.
Apparently, Nayan got Prabhu Deva’s name tattooed on her wrist when she was in a relationship with him.
Do you know the SPLIT STORY between Prabhu Deva and Nayanthara?
It’s like this – Latha (Prabhu Deva’s wife), filed a petition at the family court against him. The reason – living in a relationship with Nayanthara. Latha also requested a reunion with Prabhu and threatened to go on a hunger strike, if Prabhu married Nayan.
Here’s some more fuel to fire…Several women’s organizations protested against Nayanthara for bringing “disrepute” to the Tamil culture. They also burnt her effigy. Finally, it was in 2012 when Nayanthara confirmed the end of her relationship with Prabhu Deva. Sad! Matters of the heart are always tricky, but sometimes they get conditional.
