The Stand Out Quality of Vignesh Shivan
The actress revealed the qualities of Vignesh Shivan that she likes the most in him. The 36-year-old Aram actress claims that he encourages her to do work and does not like to prevent her success. "I have not talked about him (Vignesh Shivan) at many places. The men I have encountered usually think about how to stop a woman's success. I started working a lot after he came into my life. He makes me feel that I am really good at what I do," Behinwood quotes her as saying in the interview.

Nayan claims that Vignesh Shivan cares for his mother and sister as well. She adds, "Another thing is that he takes care of his mom and sister so well. Usually men don't care for their mothers and sisters as much as women do, but he's not like that. It's been six years and he calls them every day to make sure they have eaten,"

View on Marriage and Relationship
When asked about her view on marriage and live-in relationship, she said that people should not be judged based on individuals' choices. She claims, "Nobody should say that this is right or wrong. Do what is comfortable for you.
