Newlyweds Nayanthara, Vignesh Shivan Issue Apology For Violating Tirupati Temple Rules

New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Actress Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan who got married recently has issued an apology after getting caught up in up in controversy during their visit to Tirupati temple in Tirupati. The newlyweds were apparently delivered a legal notice for wearing shoes inside the temple premises and performing photoshoots. In the photos that have now gone viral on the internet, Nayanthara was seen walking in the premises of the shrine wearing her footwear.

On Sunday, Vignes Shivan issued an apology letter to the Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam board and wrote, "Dear all, we have always wanted our marriage to happen in Tirupati but due to logistical reasons that were not possible and we had to do our wedding in Chennai. To wholesomely complete our wedding, we made sure we headed to Tirupati directly from our wedding venue (without going home) to watch the Sami Kalyanam and to receive the blessings of Lord Balaji who we have utmost devotion towards."

He added, "We had a wonderful darshan and wanted to click a picture outside the temple to have this day in our memory and to feel like the wedding got completed here, as per our wish but due to the crowd and chaos we had to exit the premises and re-enter at a time when there was a lesser commotion. In the hurry for a quick picture we did not realize we had our footwear on when we got back later for the quick picture outside the temple. We are a couple who go to temples regularly and have immense faith in God. We have been to Thirumala almost 5 times in the past 30 days trying to do our wedding there!"

He continued and said, "We sincerely apologise to those who we could have offended and we mean no disrespect to the lord who we love. We are grateful for the love and wishes we have received from everyone for our special day and we hope you continue to shower us with only the positivity we need from you."
