One of India’s leading power couples, actor-politician Udhayanidhi Stalin and filmmaker Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi, recently sat down for an exclusive interview with Galatta. The interview starts off with anchor Mirchi Vijay introducing the Tamil cinema star couple, who share many interesting anecdotes about the various stages in their relationship, both before and after their marriage in 2002. Udhayanidhi and Kiruthiga, who recently completed 20 years of married life, are appearing together in an interview after many years and the chat session has the couple opening up and reminiscing the fun times they have shared together since the early days of their relationship. 

Among the various highlights of the cute couple interview, Kiruthiga reveals that she and Udhayanidhi had dated for nearly seven years before they got married, while also talking about her digital debut, the web series Paper Rocket, which recently premiered on the ZEE5 streaming platform. Stating Udhayanidhi's love for her to be along the lines of Dhanush in Kaadhal Kondein, Kiruthiga revealed that their bond continues to be stronger than ever. Udhayanidhi, who will next be seen in films like Maamannan, Kalaga Thalaivan, Kannai Nambathey, and a project recently announced under Kamal Haasan's Raaj Kamal Films International (RKFI) banner, too shared a fun memorable moment about watching the Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha-starrer 96, with their family, and revealed that the proposal scene in the film resembled their love story. 

Speaking about how Udhayanidhi Stalin proposed to her, Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi said, "Initially, I rejected his proposal out of fear as he was from a political family. But, he has his own tactics where he sports an innocent look on his face and thus managed to convince me on October 21st." The Vanakkam Chennai and Kaali filmmaker further added, "It was also his sister's birthday and he lied to his family under the pretext of buying a gift before coming over to propose to me."
