Vishal said that he feels the fact that he began socialising and mingling a lot more once he got into films could have been one of the main reasons why they separated as he used to be quite an introvert. He stated, “That’s when things started going wrong. The question of ‘You’ve changed’ came into being. Somewhere along it became, ‘No, I did not marry this guy.’”
Both Vishnu and Rajini couldn’t recover from it and decided to part ways. “You can’t force anyone. I can’t digest [that it ended]. But I must. For the good of my son… (pause)… and hers. I seriously like her even today, and I know she likes me back. She is a good person, and she knows I am too. But I think, sometimes, the universe doesn’t want you to be together.”
Speculations of the reason for their divorce was rife that it was Vishnu Vishal and Amala Paul’s affair that broke their marriage. However, Vishnu rubbished these rumours and cleared the air through the interview.
Vishnu and Rajini have a baby boy Aryan who was born in the year 2017.
