The Kollywood grapevine has been on the overdrive about director Vijay and Amala Paul tying the knot.
A few days back Amala had issued a press statement saying that she and Vijay would make an announcement after the director returns from US, where he had gone for the post-production work of Saivam.
Now they have jointly issued a statement through their PR - Vijay says in the press statement: “I take this opportunity to declare the conversion of my status from being single to couple. Yes, the search for my life partner ends here as I have found my soul mate in Amala! She is the girl with the most beautiful heart I know! She is truly a treasure and I will preserve with utmost love and care.”
They were to announce it at a press meet, but the news got leaked. They had no intentions of hiding anything from media or friends or fans or well-wishers. At a later date they would be meeting the media to announce their marriage date.
Vijay added: “ Amala has a few professional commitments to complete and he is waiting for the release of Saivam for the celebration of their life.”
Meanwhile read what Amala has posted on her Facebook page
Amala: "It seems like yesterday .The toddler,hanging on to papa's fingers,went to school.Rescued by brother during the occasional trouble,punishments rendered by mom often left the sentimental me speechless for days which will in turn make the whole house silent. I was always their princess .well,time to end all those,'alvida' to all those perks....
Time to enter the next stage of my life ,Where my partner is awaiting as eager as me to spend the rest of our lives together .Marriage never stuck to my mind ,Even the idea of that .
As life went like that one fine day i met this gentleman,an epitome of chivalry and magnificent creation of god with all the good manners a man should posses.
He came to my life,changed my life ,changed my thoughts and He literally swept me off my feet .Something inside me made me like the changes in me,later i realised it was the loce for him.
Here I AM DROWNED IN LOVE , DRENCHED IN CARE BY HIM.Thank you VIJAY for making my life so beautiful ,for making my life so complete , yes .. YOU COMPLETE ME !!"
