Vijay was married to actress Amala Paul for two years. Last year, the couple had applied for divorce and that was granted last week.
“To my dismay, I found that in certain section of media there were some fabricated rumours on my remarriage. This is baseless. This sort of unverified reporting disturbs me a lot,” Vijay said in a statement.
Crediting that media has been largely instrumental in his growth, he said: “I feel I have the moral right to ask them to avoid such rumours. My commitment to the audience and the media is films of substance, and I will strive hard to deliver it.”
Known for helming films such as “Deiva Thirumagal” and “Thalaivaa”, Vijay is currently busy with the post-production of “Vanamagan”, a forest-based Tamil thriller.
