Embracing New Religion
One of the sacrifices she did was to leave the religion to which she was born and embrace the Hinduism. Nayanthara's decision had taken by a surprise and also faced criticism from a section of Christian groups.

Media had reported that Nayanthara converted to the Hinduism to marry Prabhu Deva with whom she was madly in love. She embraced the new religion at the Arya Samaj in Chennai.

Conversion Process
Talking about it, the 34-year old had said, "I flew down to Chennai on August 7 (Sunday) and went to the Arya Samaj temple. I performed the homam and chanted Vedic hymns and mantras. I repeated the chants with conviction and total belief. Converting to Hindusim was a conscious decision, which came straight from my heart,"
