Amala Paul, ever since she walked away from her marriage with director Vijay, remained silent about what made the couple to opt for divorce.
Now, weeks after Vijay’s father and producer-actor A L Azhagappan made some shocking claims about his son’s married life with Amala, the ‘Mynaa’ and ‘Aadai’ actress has broken her silence on the issue.
In an interview, Amala called her divorce controversy as an unnecessary one and stated it as a personal thing. She also said that no other person was responsible for her divorce, and that the decision was completely made by her.
She called Dhanush as her well wisher. On second marriage, Amala Paul said that it was not happening anytime soon, and added that she would make an announcement after she had completed her ongoing projects.
Azhagappan had said in an interview that Amala Paul took the decision of staying away from films after marriage. “However, Dhanush offered her the lead role in his production venture, ‘Amma Kanakku’ and the actress agreed to star in it,” he said.
He said this is one of the reasons behind Vijay and Amala Paul’s divorce. In an interaction with filmmaker-actor Chithra Lakshmanan, Alagappan said though he did not approve the wedding, he could not anything about it as Vijay was adamant. “I denied him permission several times and struggled a lot to restrict him from marrying her. It is a tragedy,” he said.
He added: “It is nothing about marrying a girl from cinema industry. I have treated actresses who worked with us like sisters. We can’t blame a woman blindly.”
Alagappan further said, “What worried me the most was that I realised that characters of Vijay and Amala Paul would not work for a marriage life. We had also heard a lot about her. Though we didn’t accuse her blindly, I kept insisting Vijay that it won’t work.”
