Nayanthara and her long-time filmmaker boyfriend Vignesh Shivn, tied the knot, in a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony on June 9, at a private resort in Mahabalipuram. It's no secret that they were dating for nearly seven years.
The couple expressed their gratitude to the press for having showered them with love and constant support. Nayanthara said, "Thank you so much for coming in (referring to the journalists present). I am grateful to the press for everything. We would need more of your blessings in the coming days." Vignesh Shivn, on his part, recalled how he met Nayanthara for the first time at the same hotel, where reporters were invited on Saturday.
The Naanum Rowdydhaan director tied the mangalsutra around Nayanthara's neck, in the presence of 200 invitees, including Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, Rajinikanth, Mani Ratnam, Boney Kapoor, Jyotika, Gautham Menon, Atlee, Anirudh, and others. Originally, the wedding ceremony was to be held at the Tirupati temple; but due to logistical issues, they decided to get married in Chennai.
There were rumours about Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivn signing a deal with Netflix to exclusively cover the event, under Gautham Menon's direction. However, the filmmaker, in an interview had clarified that he was indeed directing a special video, but it wasn't for the wedding, but a chronicle of Nayanthara's life journey. It was reported that the shooting of this documentary will happen only after the wedding.
Post-wedding, the couple provided lunch to thousands of needy people in old homes, temples and children's homes.
On Saturday, Nayanthara was caught in controversy as she was seen roaming with footwear on the streets that lead to the Tirupati Venkateswara temple. Eventually, the authorities concerned, issued a legal notice to the couple, after which they issued a written apology.
In a statement, the couple wrote, “After the wedding, we went straight to Tirupati temple without even going home. A lot of people saw us, and we didn't know how to react to it. In the ensuing commotion, we failed to notice that we were walking with footwear in the area. We apologise for the inconvenience."
Nayanthara, on the acting front, was last seen in Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kaadhal, directed by Vignesh Shivn. Up next, she has O2, releasing this week, which will stream on Disney+Hotstar.
