Devika and Adithya Anbu were destined to be together. Devika was one of the leading ladies for the movie “Jeyam undu bayam illai”. At the last minute the leading actor was replaced by Adithya Anbu who failed to make an initial good impression on Devika with his mischiefs and forward ways. After a schedule of the shoot, they both got to know each other and turned into good friends. Even Devika’s brother got close with Adithya and the trio along with Devika’s sister were going around Chennai and enjoyed hanging out together.
Devika was determined never to be married. But slowly, Adithya swept her off her feet and both of them got close. Though they both liked each other, they never spoke about marriage or living together. So, it took Devika by surprise when Adithya asked her one day if they should get married. The rest is history!
The best part about their 5-year love story is how both their parents consent to their union and did not get bothered by their cast, language or creed. Devika is a Malayalee and Adithya belonged to Tamil Thevar sect. Their wedding was a grand affair that borrowed rituals from both their sects.

Devika’s entry was like a queen, where she was seated in a palanquin while Anbu entered the venue like Prince Charming on a Harley Davidson Bike.
