Tirumala: Recently married actor Nayanthara and her husband Vignesh Shivan got embroiled in controversy during their visit to Tirupati temple in Tirupati. After a wedding in Mahabalipuram on Thursday, the couple went to the hill shrine of Tirupati to participate in the Kalyanotsava of Lord Venkateswara.
Now in the pictures going viral on the internet, Nayanthara was seen walking around the temple premises with her shoes and slippers. According to Narasimha Kishore, Chief Vigilance Security Officer, Tirumala Tirupati Deshasthanam Board, wearing sandals is strictly prohibited inside the temple premises.
He said, “She (Nayanthara) was seen walking around in Mada Streets with shoes and slippers. Our security reacted immediately. We have even seen that she did a photo shoot inside the temple premises, which was again banned. Private cameras are not allowed inside the holy shrine”.
Informing that they will soon give a legal notice to the actor, he said, “We are giving notice to Nayanthara. We have spoken to her as well and she is releasing a video to the press apologizing to Lord Balaji, TTD and pilgrims.” However, we are going to give her notice.”
Meanwhile, Shivan has issued a statement apologizing for this. The 37-year-old actor tied the knot with Vignesh in an intimate ceremony at a private resort in Mahabalipuram. Close friends and family members attended the ceremony.
Only a few celebrities were invited. Rajinikanth, Shah Rukh Khan and director Atlee were some of the celebrities who were seen at the wedding. Earlier, Vignesh Shivan had said during a press conference to announce his marriage that he had originally planned to get married in Tirupati but then had to drop the idea due to logistics issues.
