Prabhu Deva and Nayantara
There have been rumours of a Prabhu Deva – Nayantara alliance since 2009, when they worked together in “Villu”. On July 2, 2011, Prabhu Deva was granted a divorce from his wife Ramlatha, paving the way for his marriage to Nayantara.
Neither Prabhudeva nor Nayantara have confirmed or denied their relationship; but they are usually spotted together at public functions. One reason for this could be that women groups in South India (especially Tamil Nadu) have been protesting against the Prabhu Deva – Nayantara relationship. They feel that injustice has been done to Prabhu Deva’s first wife, Ramlatha, especially considering the death of their eldest child.
