TN Starts Looking Into The Nayanthara Surrogacy Scandal
The Tamil Nadu government has established a three-person committee to investigate the legalities of starlet Nayanthara and her husband, Vignesh Shivan, conceiving via surrogacy. The couple was wed in a lavish ceremony in June of this year.
The minister of health for Tamil Nadu, M A Subramanian, announced that a commission led by a joint director will look into whether the famous couple complied with the law when choosing surrogacy.
According to him, a committee from the Directorate of Medical Services (DMS) will go to the hospital where the surrogate was treated and admitted in order to make sure that all of the records follow the prescribed policies.
“The committee will ask the pair for clarification if necessary. However, the investigation has already started, and we have requested the committee to produce a report in a week, added Subramanian. There were rumors on social media that the couple had chosen surrogacy in a way that didn’t follow the rules. This meant that an investigation was needed.
After Parliament approved The Surrogacy (Regulation) Act, 2021 in December 2021, which took effect on January 25, 2022, commercial surrogacy was outlawed in India. Because only “altruistic surrogacy” is now permitted, the bearing mother will receive no financial assistance other than medical expenses.
After Nayantara and Shivan announced the birth of their twin boys, Uyir (life) and Ulagam, on Sunday, the dispute got underway (world).
On October 9, Shivan published a photo on his Instagram and Twitter accounts with the remark, “Nayan & Me have Become Amma & Appa” (father & mother). We are fortunate to have twin male babies. Two blessed kids have been born for us, combining all of our prayers, the blessings of our ancestors, and all of the good manifestations generated. We are in need of your prayers for our Uyir and Ulagam.
Many people questioned whether the pair obeyed the rules because commercial surrogacy has been illegal in India since December 2021, when Shivan’s post went viral online.
However, some argued that the lead actress herself, or the couple Nayantara and Shivan, might have chosen surrogacy. The couple has not yet revealed if they used surrogacy to conceive their children.
