Her relationship with actor Simbu was one of the major attention relationships in the cinema industry. It is said that the two actors fell in love during the making of the movie Vallavan. However, they parted ways a few months later.
Years after their breakup, the two stars reconciled and remained friends. In an old interview that has now resurfaced online, Simbu opened up about his relationship with the actor. He said,”Nayan is a good soul, we’re just friends and it’s foolish to link us romantically. As professionals and people who shared an intense friendship, we still share the fondness for each other as people, we talk about usual things like films, common friends and our lives. We have both moved on and found peace in our lives, there’s no bitterness,”
After their breakup Simbu was reported to be dating actor Hansika while Nayanthara dated actor, director Prabhu Deva. Both the relationships did not last as Simbu is now reported to be happily single while Nayanthara is in a good place with Naanum Rowdy Dhaan director, Vignesh Shivan.
