After the Surya-Jyothika Kollywood romance, here's a remake of sorts! Sneha and Prasanna will tie the knot on the 11th of next month. The duo have been dating for a while and made a formal announcement about their marriage before the media in Chennai today.
Unlike the Surya-Jyothika love story in real life; there's a twist here. Jyothika quit acting post marriage. But Sneha's Prince Charming made it clear to NDTV: "Its entirely her call whether to act or not. As far as I am concerned I would like to watch her acting; as a fan and a friend. I have given her complete freedom to decide."
Sneha and Prasanna had acted as a married couple in the film Achamundu Achamundu, directed by an NRI filmmaker and shot in the US.
When Sneha came from Dubai a few years ago to don the grease paint in Chennai's tinsel town, film critics had predicted that she would emerge as a prominent star cut out for quality roles. And the dusky actress proved her mettle as she was cast opposite every top star from Kamal Haasan in Vasool Raja - a remake of Munna Bhai MBBS to Rajinikanth, Vikram, Surya, Ajith and Vijay. One of her films Pallikoodam was screened at the Cannes Film festival a few years ago.
Prasanna is an engineering graduate from Trichy. As an actor, he has been choosy about his roles. Quite like Madhavan, he too has cultivated a chocolate boy image. But as he will soon cease to be a bachelor boy, one can almost sense a trail of broken hearts among his female fans in the South!
