South Indian actress Nikesha Patel made headlines a couple of days ago when she said in an  interview that she wants to marry Prabhu Deva. During a media interaction, the actress, who made her debut in Puli opposite Pawan Kalyan, was asked if she harbours the desire to work with Prabhu Deva and she reportedly said, “You are asking about doing a movie with Prabhu Deva but I want to marry Prabhu Deva.” However, the actress has now issued a clarification about the marriage rumours and said that her statement was misconstrued.

Taking to social media, Nikesha said, “I’m so fed up with media calls last few days its about time I clarify this is not true…this news has been completely misunderstood. I’m busy with work and family.” She further said that after a lot of papers and websites carried the news, she felt the need to come out and talk about it. “I think it’s time to clarify that the Prabhu deva sir news is not true … I’m not marrying anyone…. he’s purely just a friend … And a wellwisher. I call him sir only.”

Nikesha has acted in Telugu, Tamil and Kannada films. Currently, she is shooting for ‘Teri Meherbaaniyaan 2’- which is a bi-lingual film to be made in Telugu and Tamil and is a sequel of 1985 Hindi film ‘Teri Meherbaniyan’. Prabhu Deva on the other hand is single right now, post his divorce with first wife Ramlath (1995 – 2011). The reported reason is Prabhu’s alleged affair with actress Nayantara. She is currently dating Vignesh Shivan and the two are touted to get married soon.
