However, there is no official announcement regarding this from the couple.

Amala began her acting career with the 2009-release Malayalam film "Neelathamara." She became popular in Tamil with the release of the critically acclaimed film, "Mynaa." Since then she has starred in several Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam films including "Thalaivaa," "Oru Indian Pranayakadha," "Iddarammayilatho," "Vettai" and "Naayak" among others. Her last Tamil release, "Velai Illa Pattathari," turned out to be a huge hit at the box office.

The actress fell in love with Vijay while shooting for "Deivathirumagal", co-starring Vikram and Anushka Shetty. Amala has cut down her film projects post her marriage. She is awaiting the release of a couple of projects including "Laila O Laila" (Malayalam) and "Mili" (Malayalam).

On the other hand, Vijay is helming a project with Vikram Prabhu in the lead. Malayalam actress Keerthi Suresh will reportedly be making her Tamil film debut with Vijay's film.
