Nayanthara and Silambarasan, better known as Simbu or STR, are said to have fallen in love while filming Vallavan. The two were observed partying together and attending several events and activities together. But everything quickly subsided.
After a few months, some of the couple's photos were posted online and quickly became popular. Things returned to normal many years after their breakup, and they kept up their friendship.
Simbu has discussed his friendship with Nayanthara after their breakup, according to Pinkvilla, in a previous interview from 2020. Even though Nayan and I are only friends and not lovers, she has a good heart. As colleagues and friends who had a close relationship, we still have affection for one another on a personal level. We discuss everyday topics like movies, mutual acquaintances, and our personal lives. There's no resentment between us now that we've both moved on and found serenity in our lives.

Rumors that the Tamil actress and the choreographer-turned-actor were dating first appeared in tabloids and newspapers in 2009. The two allegedly fell in love with the Villu movie's sets (2009). When questioned by the media, the two, however, never acknowledged or denied their relationship.
Later, the rumors stopped. According to a Zoom TV story, Prabhudeva confessed his love for Nayanthara in 2010 and declared that he would love to marry her. He was already married and the father of two kids at this point. His wife, Ramlath, also known as Latha, learned of his testimony and brought him before the court, accusing him of not supporting their family financially because of his involvement with the actress.
Latha has submitted a second petition to the Chennai court, requesting that the justice department forbid the director of Wanted from wed locking the actress. If her request was ignored, she even made a threat to go on a hunger strike. As a result, numerous women's organizations took to the streets to burn Nayanthara's effigies and claim that she had damaged Tamil culture. Every day was nastier than the last.
A few months later, though, Prabhudeva and Latha finally came to an arrangement. The director and his 15-year wife reached a divorce agreement in which he promised to pay her three homes, two cars, and Rs. 10 lakhs in alimony.
