Popular singer Vaikom Vijayalakshmi, who got recently engaged to Santhosh last year, seems to have called off her wedding.
Announcing the break-up through a press meet, Vijayalakshmi said that Santhosh had put forward certain conditions asking her to stop musical programs after the marriage. He had asked her to pursue a career as a teacher in a school, she said.
Also, he backtracked from his promise to stay with her parents and insisted on putting up with one of his relatives.
“He had agreed to stay with me in my own house, even after the marriage. But he went back on his word soon after the engagement. So I decided to drop the marriage plans,” she said.
Vijayalakshmi’s father has been quoted saying that that it was better to have said no in the beginning rather than regretting later.
Vijayalakshmi added that she was not forced by anyone to backtrack from the proposed wedlock and that the decision was her own.
