The father of South Indian actress Amala Paul, who recently got engaged to Tamil film director A L Vijay, today said the couple had only offered prayers at a church at nearby Aluva.
In a letter to the Varapuzha archdiocese, Paul Varghese, the father said the two had gone to the church to offer prayers and no bethrothal ceremony was held. A sectionof the media had misinformed saying the bethrothal ceremony was held, he stated.
The clarification comes in the wake of protests from a section of the faithful that the church had allowed the bethrothal ceremony of the actress to a non-Christian inside the church.
They had stated that a facility denied to them was given to Amala only because she was an actor.
The two are set to get married as per Hindu traditions in Chennai.
