Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan had also submitted the required documents and it was made known that the couple had registered their marriage six years ago, in 2016.

It is now reported that the panel set up by the Ministry of Health, which inquired the issue, has given a clean chit to the couple. Headed by two pediatric doctors, the committee stated in its report, that Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan registered their marriage on March 11, 2016. Further, the couple abided by the surrogacy guidelines and had submitted the necessary documents as per the ICMR rules. It was also revealed that the surrogate mother, who is reported to be Nayanthara's relative, is a married woman with a child.
