Shockingly, the most revered director Bala of Tamil cinema has announced his divorce with his wife Muthumalar. They got separated legally on March 5, 2022. Sources close to the family say the couple have been living separately for the past 4 years as quoted by news outlets. They have parted ways due to differences in opinion which have been mounting in the recent years. They have a daughter together.
He is one among a very few directors who portray women with respect in their movies. His movies ‘Sethu’, ’Pithagan, ‘Paradesi’ , ‘Avan Ivan’, ‘Nanda’ have created the superstars of today. His creations always speak about the marginalised and the downtrodden.
Last month Actor Danush and Ishwarya Rajnikanth announced their separation following Actor Samantha and Naga Chaitanya who parted ways recently. It is shocking to see kollywood couples announcing separation one after another in the recent months.
