Husband & Children
First marriage: Karthikeyan
Following his suicide, the police found a suicide note in which he talked about how Myna’s father was the reason for his actions. He wrote,
I tried to talk to Nandhini many times over the phone, but Rajendran came in between and stopped. I am committing suicide due to the mental agony caused because of this. He had even blocked my call. He is only wholly responsible for my suicide.”
In an interview, while talking about Karthikeyan, she revealed that the woman Karthikeyan was previously married to, had committed suicide and Karthikeyan was arrested by the police for his involvement in her case. She also said that he used to take money from innocent people in exchange for false-promised government jobs.
Nobody, including my parents, knew about an incident so far. He had an affair with some other girl, who committed suicide. And the police arrested him. But, I didn’t tell anyone. I told others that he had gone to Dubai. All the secrets that I had buried in my heart are now coming out because of him. He was very upset as people were pressuring him to return his money. I used to give him pep talk time and again and even told him that we could be together again once he sorts out all the problems. I was even giving him money from my earnings without telling anyone. When I confronted him about it, he threatened to commit suicide. And that is the reason my parents decided to take me to their home with them.”
