Nayanthara and Prabhu Deva's rumours of secret marriage

Knot now? Nayanthara’s ‘Prabhu’ tattoo adds fuel to rumours of her secret marriage to Prabhu Deva in Hyderabad

Breaking news of a Telugu channel has it that Nayanthara’s married Prabhu Deva secretly in Hyderabad! Kollywood grapevine holds that Prabhu Deva and Nayanthara are the hottest couple in town and does not deny rumours of them being in love ever since they worked together in Vijay’s Villu, sources close to the actress have denied the marriage. “She was not even in Hyderabad when rumours of her marriage broke,” they said. The choreographer, actor-turned-director Prabhu Deva is a married man with three children, and went through a harrowing time a few months back when he lost his eldest son. The buzz was that it was Nayan, who gave him strength to come out of his personal grief, which was compounded by the fact that his marriage with Ramlath was on the rocks. Sources also attribute Nayan’s reluctance to party to her closeness to Prabhu. She withdrew into a shell and cut off all her friends in the industry. Her frequent trips to temples are also attributed to the man in her life, who is an ardent devotee. When asked about Nayanthara, Prabhu Deva said that “it is personal”.

Prabhu Deva also went out of his way to improve her onscreen dance movements, as he personally coached her. Recently, he created a stir when he went to Kumarakom at his expense and without taking any fee choreographed two songs that were picturised on Nayanthara for the Malayalam film Bodyguard! The rumours about their affair, was confirmed when the actress tattooed ‘Prabhu’ (P in English and the rest in Tamil), a little above her wrist at a newly-opened tattoo lounge in Hyderabad. Earlier, Nayanthara had also pierced her nose, while shooting for her Malayalam film Bodyguard in Kerala. It is said she did this because Prabhu loves it! Sources close to the actress say that “they may be in love, but marriage is not on the cards in the near future as they are professionals who are concerned about their careers.” Nayanthara is doing one Tamil film and two Telugu films, one with NTR and the other with Ravi Teja, and Bodyguard in Malayalam. Prabhu Deva is making a comeback to acting and is playing the lead in a Tamil film and is directing, the Hindi remake of Pokkiri — Wanted Dead and Alive — with Salman Khan and Ayesha Takia.
