Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan tied the knot with each other after seven years of dating. However, less than 24 hours after the marriage, the couple became embroiled in controversy. Soon after the wedding, the couple went to Tirumala, it was reported that the couple were wearing sandals on the temple premises. However, the temple management has clarified that the said spot was outside the Venkateshwara temple and devotees are allowed to wear footwear there.

As the online hate increased over time, Vignesh Shivan has issued an apology. It reads, "Dear All, We have always wanted our marriage to happen in Tirupati but due to logistical reasons that was not possible and we had to do our wedding in Chennai. To wholesomely complete our wedding, we made sure we headed to Tirupati directly from our wedding venue (without going home) to watch the Sami Kalyanam and to receive the blessings of Lord Balaji who we have utmost devotion. We had a wonderful darshan and wanted to click a picture outside the temple to have this day in our memory and to feel like the wedding got completed here, as per our wish but due to the crowd and chaos we had to exit the premises and re-enter at a time when there was a lesser commotion. In the hurry for a quick picture, we did not realize we had our footwear on when we got back later for the quick picture outside the temple. We are a couple who go to temples regularly and have immense faith in God. We have been to Thirumala almost 5 times in the past 30 days trying to do our wedding there!"

"We sincerely apologize to those who we could have offended and we mean no disrespect to the lord who we love. We are grateful for the love and wishes we have received from everyone for our special day and we hope you continue to shower us with only the positivity we need from you," the press note reads.
