After being married for two years, Amala Paul and Al Vijay have decided to call it quits. It was Vijay’s father who confirmed the news.
The recent news of Amala Paul and AL Vijay splitting shocked the South Industry. The couple had been dating for three years before they got married. Earlier compatibility and lifestyle issues were cited as the reason for the split, but turns out a third party was involved – AL Vijay’s parents. They were reportedly against Amala working after marriage but her decision to work despite Vijay’s parent’s disapproval may have been major reason. In a telephonic conversation with a leading channel Vijay’s parents had gone on to reveal how Amala continued to sign on films even though she had agreed not to. Vijay’s father even went onto say that he supported his son’s decision to separate form her. But is there another side to this split?
A family friend of the couple told a leading daily that Amala was constantly being harassed by Vijay’s parents and it had come to a point where she couldn’t take it anymore. In the same daily, a source revealed–“Amala and Vijay had no differences between them; it’s the pressure from Vijay’s family that led to their split. Since his parents were against Amala acting in films after marriage, she decided to take a break from commercial films. However, she had to finish shooting for the three films that she had signed before her marriage. Vijay was quite supportive and even when there were rumours linking Amala with certain superstars, he didn’t let any of that affect their relationship. He always gave her the respect she deserves, both, as a wife and an actor. But his family constantly nagged her with incriminating questions about her career and personal life. Vijay was aware of this but he was helpless on many occasions. Since there seemed to be no other solution in sight, they both decided to go for a divorce,”
So, was the couple forced to take this decision because of Vijay’s parent’s interference? Amid all these speculations and rumours, the couple have chosen to remain silent on the entire issue.
