One of the most popular choreographers of all time, Prabhudeva needs no introduction. In his personal life, the terrific dancer was married to his first wife, Latha, from 1995 to 2011. However, their divorce after such a long life of togetherness was primarily because of Prabhu’s controversial extra-marital affair with actress Nayanthara, who was a fellow choreographer back then. This relationship continued to the extent that Prabhu Deva and Nayanthara started to live together while the former left his wife and two children back home.

However, when Prabhu’s wife, Latha, learnt about it, she immediately lodged a court case demanding her husband be reunited with her. Moreover, she threatened the couple with a hunger strike if their extra-marital relationship did not end. Such news led to massive protests against Nayanthara by many women’s organisations who blamed her for spoiling the traditional values and culture of Tamil women. Ultimately, while Latha divorced Prabhu in 2011, Nayanthara broke up with him too.
