Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan visited the Tirupati Lord Venkateswara shrine in Andhra Pradesh after their dream wedding.
They were come to seek the deity’s blessings for their newlywed life. However, their visit got them embroiled in a controversy.
The pair was slapped with a legal notice for walking in footwear inside the shrine and performing photoshoots.
Shivan, on the other hand, has made an apology for the incident. The pair married on June 9 in Mahabalipuram’s Sheraton Park. Vignesh Shivan and Nayanthara have been together for about seven years.
Nayantara was seen strolling in Temple with her shoes on
Nayanthara was seen strolling in the Tirupati temple with her shoes on in images and videos that went popular on the internet. Wearing sandals within the temple is definitely prohibited, according to Tirumala Tirupati Desvasthanam Board Chief Vigilance Security Officer Narasimha Kishore.
“She (Nayanatara) was observed walking Mada Streets with footwear,” he claimed.
Our security team reacted quickly. We’ve also discovered that they did a picture shoot inside the temple’s grounds, which is illegal. Inside the Holy Shrine, personal cameras are not permitted.”
“We are issuing notices to Nayanatara,” he said, adding that they will shortly serve a legal notice to the actor.
We also spoke with her, and she expressed a desire to issue a press release apologising to Lord Balaji, TTD, and pilgrims. However, we are going to serve notices to her.”
VIGNESH SHIVAN apologizes in a Letter
Vignesh Shivan quickly addressed a letter of apologies to the Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam board. “After the wedding, we proceeded straight to Tirupati temple and attended Ezhumalayan’s wedding ceremony without even coming home.” Following that, a large crowd of people emerged from the temple and surrounded us. So we left and returned a short time later in front of the Ezhumalayan shrine. We finished the photo shoot fast and decided to leave because the fans would swarm us if they saw us. During the subsequent hubbub, we failed to notice that we were wearing shoes in an area where they were prohibited. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience. We’ve visited Tirupati five times in the last month with the intention of getting married there. “It was not possible to celebrate our wedding in Tirupati temple due to numerous circumstances,” the letter stated.
