Nagarjuna and Tabu eventually split up but his second wife Amala gets along well with her husband's rumored ex. 

Nagarjuna stated that Tabu will always be his beautiful companion in an interview with The Times Of India: Tabu is a great friend of mine yes. Since I was 21 or 22 and she was only 16 years old our friendship had a long history. That resembles virtually a half-life... Whatever is said about our friendship is less. Regarding her I have nothing to conceal. My face glows when you speak her name.. (laughs). That's how easy it is. Now if you want to read anything into what I say when I say stuff like that that is your choice. I see her as a beautiful friend.
