Amala Paul's divorce was one of the most shocking celebrity break ups. When the 28-year-old actress announced that she was divorcing her husband director A L Vijay of two years, it came as a shock to her fans and followers. Though many reasons were cited for the divorce, it appears that Amala Paul taking up her career was the real reason.
Recently, in a video interview given to a Tamil channel, AL Vijay's father AL Azhagappan made shocking revelation. In fact, he blamed actor Dhanush for his son's failed marriage.
AL Azhagappan said that Amala Paul had agreed and decided not to act in films after her marriage, but Dhanush was the one who made her sign his productional venture Amma Kanakku. It was then that actress Amala Paul started acting again in films, and this was the reason behind Vijay and Amala Paul’s divorce. AL Azhagappan’s accusation now has caused a stir in the industry.
Vijay, had earlier, issued a statement that he had not asked Amala to stop working and that he had always seen 'women in (his) films with dignity and respect.'
After the duo got divorced in 2017, AL Vijay got married to doctor R Aishwarya.
Much later, during one of the promotional interviews of her movie Aadai, Amala opened up about being in a relationship. She said that she was dating somebody, that her current relationship has helped 'heal' her and that she would like to start a family.
