They hit the headlines some time ago with the news of their split. While tales of separating are dime a dozen among showbiz folks, this was one split that definitely raised eyebrows. We are talking about Tamil director-actor Ramarajan and actress Nalini. Ramarajan, who is also an AIADMK MP, and Nalini had married in 1987, and the couple have a son and a daughter. The survival of the marriage for so many years had everyone feel things were hunky dory for the family.
So, what went wrong? Insiders say the misunderstandings started cropping up about three years ago. The grapevine buzz is that Ramarajan indicated his keenness to marry a close relative's daughter. Nalini, we hear, is not willing to give a divorce. Friends and wellwishers within the industry tried to patch up things between the two, but failed. Ramarajan has reportedly decided to deposit Rs10 lakh for each child in the bank.
