Kollywood, as the Tamil Film Industry popularly known as, has always been famous for its love stories – both on and off screen. Starting from the love story of Gemini Ganeshan and Savithri, to Kamal Hasaan and Gauthami, and to South India’s favorite couple, Dhanush and Aishwarya, Tollywood has been witness to many reel to real life love stories. One such love tale is that of Atlee and Priya.
One recent photograph of the couple has attracted much attention on social media, with many trolls passing racists comments on them. Ignorance of the trolls is reflected in their comments as they are not aware as to who Atlee is?
Atlee happens to be one of Tamil film industry’s most famous scriptwriter and director, whose debut film ‘Raja Rani’ (2013) was a roaring success. On the other hand, Krishna Priya is one of Tamil TV industry’s top rated actress. The two met much before they became famous. Priya was at that time working with Vijay TV for the serial ‘Kana Kaanum Kaalangal’. Later on, the actress went on to act for the successful films ‘Singham’ and ‘Singham 2’.
Priya and Atlee were in a relationship for over four years before they tied the nuptial knot in 2014! Their wedding was attended by the who’s who of the Tamil film industry.
For the social media trolls, it is not love in the relationship but the colour of their skin that matters. For them, we have just a small suggestion – ‘grow up!’
