At a recently held press conference, the Vignesh said, "Like how your blessings have been there for me professionally, I needed those for my personal life as well. I am moving on to the next stage of my personal life. On June 9, I am getting married to the love of my life, Nayanthara. It is going to be an intimate event at Mahabalipuram with family and close friends. Initially, we planned to get married at Tirupathi temple, but due to logistics issues that didn't happen. After the marriage, in the afternoon, we will share our pictures with you all. On June 11 afternoon, Nayanthara and I will meet you (media) all and we will have lunch together."
