Often, we focus only on actors, their marriages, their kids and then their divorces or affairs. But there are a few filmmakers who made headlines, not just with the films they made but their marriages as well. These directors, with their films, made us believe that true love exists but had very short love stories in their own lives.
Here are a few directors from the south who couldn't handle their marriages after a point and chose to walk out.
One of the shortest marriages ever was between AL Vijay and Amala Paul. They got married in 2014 and only survived three years before getting the marriage annulled.
