Yuvan Shankar Raja has been hitting headlines over his personal life in the last several months. The son of music legend, Ilaiyaraaja, was in news over his conversion to Islam. Now, he is back in the gossip columns over his marriage again.
As per the reports, Yuvan Shankar Raja is getting ready for the marriage for the third time. The buzz says he got engaged on Wednesday evening, October 29, to a girl named Zafrunnisa in a low-key event in Chennai.
The music director first married Sujaya Chandran in 2005, but they got divorced in 2008. A few years later, Yuvan Shankar Raja tied the knot with Shilpa Mohan at Tirupathi in Andhra Pradesh and this relationship has also been led to divorce, which was announced by the musician a few months ago.
When his divorce with Shilpa Mohan was in the news, there were reports that he was getting ready for his third marriage. However, he had denied the news, but admitted that he might get married again in the future.
Meanwhile, his sister Bhavatharini has confirmed the news on his marriage. On her Facebook page, she wrote, "Yes.. My brother yuvan converted to islam nd myself ,karthi raajja nd dad have started accepting his decision.. All that matters in our family is his happiness.. And yes.. He wl get married for the third time cos his first nd second marriage dint work out cos of personal reasons.. He dint have kids or he dint cheat anybody.."
She added, "He dosent drink or smoke.. From the age of 15 hes been doing music nd he dint follow my dads way of music.. He created his own style nd hes doing music now for more than 100 movies nd still he is being successful for his hard work.. Its hard to see even his own family ppl teasing nd critisising him.. He has proved he wl prove nd he wl keep proving... All that matters is wether u r a good human being??? Nd yuvan is.."
After his mother's demise a few years ago, the musician found faith in Islam, a decision that was not welcomed by religious fanatics and he was attacked by netizens on Twitter. This forced him quit the social media sites.
