‘Whatever gives her comfort and solace is fine by me. My feelings at the moment are of no importance. What matters is that Gautami and Subbu should be comfortable and happy. I wish them all the best and want them to know I am there for them whenever they need me. I am blessed with three daughters — Shruti, Akshara and Subbulakshmi. I consider myself the luckiest father in the world.’
However, the actor has refuted this statement by clarifying on Twitter.
இத்தருணத்த்தில் என் பெயரால் யாரோ அறிக்கை விட்டு விளையாடுவது விவேகமற்ற அநாகரீகச் செயல். நான் இச்சமயம் அறிக்கை ஏதும் வெளியிடுவதாய் இல்லை.

He said, ‘It is disgraceful that someone has released an announcement in my name under these circumstances. I’m not planning to release any announcement at this time.’
Gautami too broke the separation news on Twitter by sharing her letter from her blog. She said it was the most difficult and devastating decision she had to make in her life. The veteran actress had pointed out difference of opinion between them is the reason for the split.
