The latest development in the Prabhu Deva - Nayanthara love story is that the latter has changed her faith! The actress was spotted in Chennai and it is reported that she completed the prescribed religious rituals that would allow her to become a Hindu. The proceedings took place at the Arya Samaj temple and apparently it was a moving and very spiritual experience for the actress.
A certificate was issued to her, declaring her newfound status as a Hindu. Originally a Catholic who was christened Diana Kurian, she will no longer go by that name. Her screen name, Nayanthara will now be her legal name. The actress was reluctant to talk about her conversion and refused to discuss Prabhu Deva or her impending marriage. But she has confirmed that she is now a Hindu and would only admit that the reason for the change was personal and the decision was arrived at only after a lot of soul searching.
It may also be recalled that Prabhu Deva's fist wife had also converted from Islam to Hinduism and she changed her name from Ramlath to Latha.
