The actor is extremely bravura when it comes to how he controls his body while dancing, but his private life does not seem equally satisfactory as it has faced many highs and lows.

Prabhudeva's first marriage

In 1995, the actor got married to Ramlath. She changed her religion to be with Prabhu and also changed her name to Latha. The two had three children, one of whom unfortunately passed away due to cancer back in 2008.

In 2009, rumors of Prabhu dating Nayanthara – a Tamil actress, broke out on the news. The actor was the helmer of her Tamil movie Villu. At first, everyone thought it was a cooked-up gossip until he confessed to being actually in love with Nayanthara in September 2010.

He unveiled to a media daily that she was a very special person to him and that he wanted her to be his wife. Fact revealed that they had been seeing each other for 2 years.

Naturally, this came to the ears of Latha, Prabhu Deva’s wife, and it was not pleasant at all.

The affair of him and Nayanthara was infamous at that time

Right that year, Prabhu Deva’s wife filed a petition to the family court to seek biases against Prabhu Deva for his live-in relationship with Nayanthara and request a reunion with the actor.

Moreover, she threatened to do hunger strike if he married the actress. Meanwhile, some women organizations carried out protests against Nayantara for making discredit to Tamil culture, by burning her effigies.

In 2012, their husband-wife relationship officially ended. After the divorce, Latha got the custody of the children and Prabhu Deva got visiting rights.

Prabhudeva's second affair

Prabhu Deva and Nayanthara began living together in Mumbai. By the time Prabhu split ways with Latha, Nayanthara had entirely quit movies and heavily relied on her boyfriend for expenses.

It was said that after giving up films, the actress still kept on with her extravagant lifestyle and ended up baring huge amounts of debts.

Nayanthara and Prabhu was in a live-in relationship

And it was not the only problem. The fact that Prabhu Deva often goes to Chennai to visit his sons was not something of Nayanthara’s favor. Because of this, he had to lie to her sometimes that he was heading out for shoots, while in fact he actually went to Chennai.

Another problem that loomed between them was that as per Nayanthara, Prabhu often promised her a wedding, but would back off at the last moment.

Finally, only a year later (2012 in particular), the two made an announcement of their breakup.

Prabhu has an enviable reputation but a troubling love life

This was the life of Prabhu Deva and it was indeed a roller-coaster ride. Although the actor is now divorced from ex-wife Ramlath and parted ways from Nayanthara, the good part is Prabhu Deva never let his job suffer from the outcomes of his personal affairs.

That is why he is indeed a superstar of India and every project of his is anticipated by fans. On the work front, he is helming the Salman Khan movie Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai.

On his birthday, we wish Prabhu Deva another year of success, happiness and serenity!
