The story of this serial revolves around the main character Thulasi (Shruthi Raj) and her best friends, namely Deepa and Kalyani. Thulasi's mom ran away when she was a child and ever since Thulasi's family has shunned her, especially her father and stepmother. The only family member that truly cares for Thulasi is her grandmother. Thulasi's only dream is to continue her studies in order to help her family, but she's faced with trouble in the form of Velayudham (Nizhalgal Ravi). He's a break-inspector and a thug who falls for Thulasi, not to mention he is old enough to be her father (45 years old). He offers 5 Lakhs to Thulasi's father in return for the marriage, frequently blackmailing him with it after. Despite that, her greedy father takes it, planning on using it to pay for his son's further studies in engineering though Thulasi tops the college for her 12th Standard examinations and studies much better than him. Of course Thulasi does not want to marry but due to pressure from her father she is forced to. Soon her marriage night arrives, but not all hope is lost, because soon Tamizharasu (played by Deepak) arrives, and the rest of the story revolves around if he can or not save Thulasi from her marriage. Tamizharasu saves Thulasi from her marriage and helps her for her future studies.
Then the story starts to focus around Tamizharasu's life in addition to Thulasi's. Tamil is supposed to marry Charu, a girl that his mother chose, and his sister will marry Charu's cousin, but Tamil is still in love with Thulasi. Now Tamil has to tell his in laws and mother somehow before it's too late. Tamilarasu's sister Lavanya told Thulasi and her friend Deepa about Tamil's engagement with Charu. Thereafter, Thulasi decides to stay away from Tamil for his own and mothers sake. Tamil now lives in Thulasi's house to escape from the police due to his bank matters. In the house, he expresses how much he loves her (so does she), but she sadly hides her love for the sake of Charu (engaged girl). Now, Muthumanikkam has got Tamizh out of the house, and has asked him to change Charu's and his mum's mind if he wants to marry Thulasi (his daughter). Tamizh's mum went to Thulasi's college and embarrassed her. Tulasi decides to marry Tamizh at the same time so that she can prove to Tamizh's mum that she is a sensible girl. They get married at temple and Charu sees that marriage. They went to get blessing from Thamizh's mum but she cursed both of them. Now the couple live in Muthumanikkam's house and Padma does not like them living there. However, Muthumanikkam asked her to get out of the house with Mohan if she does not want Thulasi and Tamil in the house, so she had to accept.
After that, Thamizh and Thulasi had so many romantic moments such as when they went to look at their new house. Then, Velayutham had a plan to **** Tamil and to make Thulasi a widow so he told a man to **** him but another man came up to Thamizh and pushed him so they had a *****. Tulasi told Tamil to come back to go home, but Tamil refused to and told Thulasi to stay back and that he will deal with it. Instantly, the man pulls a knife out of his backpack and stabs Tamil twice. Thulasi took him to the hospital but she had no money to pay for the operation. Tamizh's Muthumanikkam, Lavanya, Puvi and Sudha are shocked hearing the news. Tamizh's mum cursed and said nasty dialogues about Thulasi badly and pushed her down the corridor (in the hospital), so she had to leave. Muthumanikkam goes back with Thulasi and Patti but she still showed anger towards them. Muthumanikkam could not bear the problems Thulasi had, he has a heart-******. Padma asked Thulasi and Patti to go to Velayutham's house to ask for money for her husband (Muthumanikkam). Thulasi accepted to do this help.
Meanwhile, Tamizh's operation is finished, and he keeps asking his mom where Thulasi is. Of course his mother does not tell him. Then, Padma calls Tamizh's mom in the hospital and tells her that Thulasi went to Velayutham's house for bad reasons. So Thamizh's mom takes Puvi to Velayutham's house to check and unfortunately at the time she walks out Velayutham is sitting too close to Thulasi, feeding her juice. Thulasi is about to get up but Tamizh's mom sees and gets mad. After cursing at Thulasi again Thamizh's mom goes to the police station and writes a complaint on Thulasi. The officer there promises to take action but does not because he is a friend of Velayutham.
The officer tells Velayutham about the complaint and Velayutham tells him to take action so people think Thulasi is having an affair with him. Then he tricks Thulasi into staying at his friend's house and ****s her milk. She then falls asleep and he takes pictures of himself sleeping beside her, making it seem like they are having an affair. Then he tricks her to sign divorce papers, before she is arrested. When Thamizh's friends find out Thulasi is arrested they try to tell Thamizh at the hospital but Thamizh's mom will not let them go inside. The friends try to explain to Thamizh's mom not knowing Thamizh was listening. Thamizh asks his mom to take him to court so he can testify against Thulasi and his mother is delighted. At court, Thamizh tells the judge about his wife's(Thulasi)innocence and declares in front of everyone that he would never leave his wife, even if Velayutham had ****d her. After Thamizh proves Velayutham guilty and the judge releases Thulasi. Thamizh leaves with Thulasi, Muthumanikkum, Patti and the college students. He goes to the hospital with Thulasi and turns around to see his mom, Lavanya, Puvi and Sudha behind him with sheepish looks on their faces. Thamizh tells them that he does not want to be near them anymore, and tells them that he wants to live happily with his wife only. Sudha lets him know that although it was Thulasi that got Thamizh to the hospital; it was her husband Puvi, that had paid for the surgery. Thamizh smartly lets her now that he had transferred all the money that was spent on his medical charges to their bank account at the moment. Thamizh then tells his mother that if she does not leave; he would have to call the police. Thamizh's family then leaves him. Meanwhile everyone at Charu's house talks about Thamizh's courage and integrity. Charu and her dad do not like this.
Charu's dad is furious it is revealed that he was the one who tried to **** Thamizh, but no one knows this yet. Charu goes to Thamizh's house to suck up to his mom. When she gets back, she is really mad that her ex-fiance likes his wife so much. She reads the paper and learns all the sweet things Thamizh said about his wife. She rips up the paper and calls Thulasi at the hospital. Thulasi suspects Charu was jealous, and talks with an edge in her voice. Then Charu tells Thulasi about trying to get the family back together. Although Thulasi is fooled and listens, she determines Charu is jealous because Charu sneakily suggests Thulasi has a ***** with Tamizh if he does not agree to talk to his mother again. Being restless, Charu visits Thamizh in hospital. There he was enjoying the beauty of his sleeping wife. Charu enters into the room, Thamizh asked her not to awake Thulasi but by slipping a water bottle cunningly she wakes her up. Charu understand by the sight of Thulasi that she did not like her presence. After a while Deepa arrived to see Thulasi and asked her to come and attend the special class in college. Thulasi feels reluctant to leave her husband. Charu says that she will take care of him.
A duty doctor (Gokul) came and mistook Charu as his wife after both of them says that they are not couple, doctor apologises, as he want to check Thamizh he suggests Charu to leave. By the comment Charu became furious and says how thick their friendship is. Somehow, Thamizh convinced her to wait outside. Thamizh told her do not mention every mishap happening in their life to every one. She agreed and took leave when his friends Kanagu and Joseph came. The police officer came to Thamizh and says that a man came and surrendered in the police station for stabbing him and showed him a photo and asked him that if it is a man who stabbed him. Thamizh got confused and says he is confused. The officer says he will arrange for a parade and leaves the place. Thamizh calls the Sub Inspector who helps him a lot in his needy situation. He told S.I that he knows the man who tries to **** him by his face. Photo that shown to him is not the accust. Thamizh told him that he cannot believe the officer and asked him to interrogate about the person who really wants to **** him. S.I promised him to do so. By his interrogations he understands that Veeraraghavan, Charu's father is the person who gave money to the professional ****er to **** Tamizh. Tamizh is discharged from hospital and now he lives with his wife in a new house; they are Anand's neighbours.
The first day they went to the new house, Tamizh's friends, Thulasi's friends, Patti, Muthumanikkam and Anand's parents celebrate with "pal kachal" function. Charu also visit them during Tamizh and Thulasi share a romantic moment. She gives the couple a night lamp and puts in a their bedroom. Deepa, Kalyani and Patti knows about Charu's true colour (they do not tell Tamizh or Thulasi), but Tamizh and Thulasi still do not know whether to believe Charu or not as they have guilty feelings towards Charu. Thilaga visits Thulasi and Patti (when Tamizh is not there) and says sorry for all the bad things her brother did for Thulasi. However, Thulasi says not to worry about anything and Patti says lets not talk about the past now. Thilaga adds that Thulasi is very lucky to get a very good husband and says Tamizh will take so much care of her. Both Patti and Thulasi are really happy. Thamizh and Thulasi request Thilaga to give her father's house papers to her father himself. Thamizh goes with the nice police officer and interrogates with Veeraraghavan. After emotionally blackmailing him, Veeraraghavan accepts for Nitheesh and Lavanya wedding.
Thamizh's mother plans an engagement for her daughter Lavanya with another guy. She ultimately accepts, due to her mom's emotional blackmail. Thulasi and Thamizh share a lovely moment at night at home by themselves. Thulasi accidentally knocks down Charu's lamp (so good for her). Thanks to Kanagu's call, Charu's line gets cut. Out of frustration of calls, Thamizh switches off his cell and the current goes off, leaving Thamizh and Thulasi together (awww.FN). The next morning, Thamizh makes bed coffee for Thulasi. Murugesan's wife and brother visit him pleading for not getting arrested for his ****** attempt. They confess their mistakes and tell Thamizh that they will go to the bank with him and confess their wrongdoings and as well pay back the money they stole. Thamizh and Thulasi are happy that he will get his job back. Thulasi gets ready to go to college. Nitheesh's family plans the wedding for him with Lavanya, but Charu and Veeraraghavan show their disgust and may have other plans in mind. All is well for Thulasi and her beloved hubby, Thamizharasu, as of now.Meanwhile Shyamala,the daughter of a "rowdy" is in love with Anand,shyamala meets him when he is caught by his brother for beating his brother. She calls.After that Tamil sister marriage stopped.but nobody accepts their crime.In the mean time two friends of Tamil who attended reception of Tamil sister left to attend anand's marriage in tirupati before the problem starts.
Lavanya decides to commit suicide since her wedding was stopped and Charu saves her. This sends Lavanya's mother to the hospital. Charu and Thamizh marry off Lavanya and Niteesh secretly and they go to their mother in the hospital to get her blessings. At the same time Thulasi was taking care of her mother in law Bhuvana the deen of the hospital (as well as Thulasi's mother-Thulasi does not know this) comes in uninformed and disturbs them, Thulasi got anxious and shouted at bhuvana for her misbehaviour Bhuvana leaves the place anxiously. TA, Charu and the newly married couple comes to the hospital, an incharge in the hospital asked them to leave as the visiting hours are over and the incharge reminds about the incident between Thulasi and Bhuvana. Tamil asks Thulasi to ask sorry to Bhuvana but she regrets it. Then Charu asks for permission to Bhuvana she allows her as she knew Charu very well. Then after seeing their mother and getting blessings they decide to go to the house of nitheesh. When they just arrive their nitheesh parents do not allow them and curses them. Then they leave the place and go to TA's house where at the same time Deepa reminds Thulasi about Charu's character.
A side track of Bhuvana and her husband is taking place. Lakshman is not her legal husband, only Sundari is his legal wife. Bhuvana married him illegally. Muthumanikkam's friend Mari has found out that his real first wife (not Padma) is Bhuvana. Which means Thulasi's 'run away' mother is Bhuvana. To our surprise, Thulasi has another step-brother: Prabhakar. Prabhakar is in love with Deepa but she regrets his love and says only studies and looking after her family is important at the moment. At the same time, Kanagu also loves her and she gives the same feedback. He does not seem to leave her and tries all the best to win her heart. He has now opened a new restaurant and has started a new business.
Charu goes to TA's house for one purpose...to kick Thulasi out and make herself the new lady of the household. When she reveals this to TA's mom she goes along with it happily. So Charu watches every moment Thulasi and TA are together and somehow tries to separate them. When Thulasi wanted to go to her friend's house to pick up notes with TA on his bike, Charu and TA's mom stop them by saying that Niteesh asked to borrow the bike that morning. Meanwhile, Thulasi confronts TA saying that she suspects Charu of trying to split them up and he tells her not to. Thulasi now seems confused! Charu leaves foreign after making arrangements for trouble in thulasi and TA's life.
Tulasi and Tamil suffer lot of financial problems!
Now Thulasi and Tamil lives with Sudha, Puvi & Tamil's mother, because Puvi helped Thulasi to settle all the lent money !!! Tamil works at Puvi's Shop
Lavanya is pregnant now. So her mother came to Nitheesh's house to see her. Nitheesh's mother overhears the talk of lavanya and her mom about separating thulasi and make Tamil and Charu live together. Nitheesh's mom tells that to Nitheesh and Nitheesh gets angry and shouts at Lavanya. Despite acting sorry she leaves home angrily and reaches her mom's house. There her mind is poisoned by her mom.
Meanwhile Bhuvana and Laxman are tortured by Dharman.
Nitheeesh tries to contact Lavanya as he needs to take her to hospital for check up.But Lavanya's mother is not allowing her to pick his call. Lavanya went to hospital with his mother. But the doctor is telling her to leave her ego since that is good for her baby. Now Lavanya wants to go to Nitheesh. But her mother tells her only if Nitheesh or mother-in-law or father-in-law comes and calls her she should go.
On seeing this, thulasi went to Nitheesh's house and ask lavanya's mother-in-law and father-in-law to call lavanya again to their home. But they refused. And Thulasi convinces them by saying that it is only for baby's good. So they agreed and send nitheesh to call lavanya. Nitheesh's mother tries to tell thulasi about thulasi's mother-in-law desire to separate thulasi and Tamil and marry Tamil to charu. But Nitheesh's father stopped her. So thulasi went to home.
There Nitheesh came and took lavanya to his home. When lavanya's mother ask him to come inside and take some coffee, he rejected and went. On seeing this, thulasi smiled since some days before lavanya's mother didnt allow her father and grand ma into her house for placing some furnitures bought for thulasi.On seeing her smile, she got angry and scolded her.But thulasi said she needs to study.
Tamil is also facing some problems in puvi's shop coz of his character. But thulasi asks him to adjust and work in the shop. On hearing this Tamil's mother shout at her and ask her to go to her room. Then she speak with Tamil about thulasi badly and her rasi. She asks Tamil to take thulasi to kalahasthi without writing her exams. But Tamil rejected the plan. now Tamil is ouyt of puvis shop as when the politicians cum to collect money ta rejected and he is out of the shop. ta tries to explain the cause of his deed is for good but puvi was angry and tells him to go out. later even tulasi tries to convince but he doesnt hears . sudha also told to join TA but this tym puvi is stubborn.. later TA meets charus friend. and he is with a plan of starting business and hand over it to Tamil. this is also planned by charu. later he also adds that he is in love with charu and Tamil shuld help him unite with her. everything is planned well by charu.
When Tamil is with Charu's friend in bangalore for his business, tulasi calls tamil to chennai for their wedding day. But charu initially didnt allow him to go to chennai. Instead through his friend he made tamil to go to Bombay. But after talking to tamil charu asks him to go to chennai for the wedding day But she asks him not to tell tulasi about this.So it will be a surprise for her And tamil is going to chennai.
At the same time Thulasi got a letter about charu's attitude from an unknown person. So she was in anger with charu and Sudha asks her to talk to charu.So tulasi calls charu and scolds her. When Tamil enters home, charu calls tamils mom and tells about tulasi's call. Hearin gthis tamil got angry and he was about to go back to b'lore. But at the same time tulasi's friends came and take the couple for party. They spend the whole day with their friends and came back. But tamil is still in anger with tulasi.Also charu avoiding speaking with tamil and tulasi. Charu makes his friend to send tamil out of the job. Lavanya also talks ill of tulasi when lavanya's father in law asks tamil to join with lavanyas husband in his own business.
Tamil is very much in angry with thulasi since she scolded charu. Thulasi cant convince him in this regard. Thulasi and Tamil moved to bangalore for tamil's job. This is also planned by charu. thulasi didnt want to leave his studies. But since she cant say no to tamil's question of "Is it tamil or college?" she agreed to go to Bangalore and they are stayng in Service apartments in bangalore. Everything planned by charu. But after this Thulasi's friend deepa tells her not to ***** against charu to tamil. Only if she supports charu, she can convince tamil. So thulasi told tamil that she is not in angry with charu. She understands her mistake. Now Tamil is feeling happy that thulasi changed her attitude towards charu. Charu's parents are very much comfortable with tulasi. Charu feels like her plans of making tulasi feels bad by making her stay alone in bangalore are not working well. Since tulasi spends her time in charu's home itself.
Keshav goes to visit thulasi after tamil has left home for work and tells her that thinks that charu is still in love with tamil. He says that if tamil and she left to chennai then charu will be able to forget them and be happy with charu. Keshav calls tamil and thulasi to a park to speak about this. Keshav speaks totally shocking things about thulasi that she is still doubting charu. Charu and keshav play a big game and tamil once again gets very annoyed with thulasi and brings her back to chennai.
In chennai, tamil's mother curses her to die and asked her to leave the house. While tamil was not opposing to his mother's words, she gets angry and goes to kalyani's house. Kalyani's mother advises her to go to her father's house, so mohan comes to take her to his house. Thulasi's step mother is very happy with the whole thing and she is acting to be very good with thulasi and says that she has changed hher character but is plotting to spoil her life and make her stay away from her husband. Thulasi is back to college an dcharu is close with tamil.

Thangam is a Tamil drama serial directed by B. Nakkeeran. It premiered on June 30, 2009 and is being aired on weekdays on Sun TV. Its cast include Ramya Krishnan, Vijayakumar, Seema and Manju Bhargavi of Sankarabharanam fame, among others. The story revolves around a woman and the challenges she faces among family members and society. Besides Thirumathi Selvam and Chellame, this serial is also very popular.
Raja Ramachandra Raghunath (Vijayakumar), popularly referred to as "Ayyaa", is a well known head of Ayarkudi village. His family's history is very much famous for their hierarchy of philanthropists, always kind, just and all giving. He has two wives. He and his first wife, Naachiyar (Seema) have two sons, Karthikeyan or Karthik (Pollachi Babu) and Saravanan. His second wife is Subbulakshmi (Manju Bhargavi). Ayyaa and Subbulakshmi have three daughters. Their eldest daughter is Ganga Devi or Ganga (Ramya Krishnan), who is the main protagonist in this serial. The second daughter is Ramaa Devi or Ramaa (Former: Sandra Jose, Present: Shridevi) and the last daughter is Charu Bala or Charu (Varnika).
Ayyaa has a younger sister named Mutharasi (Anuradha), who is married to Kulasekharan (G.K.), the main antagonist in this serial. Kulasekharan is also Naachiyar's elder brother. They have two children named Jayachandran and Ilavanji (Kaveri).
Karthik is married to Ilavanji. Ganga is married to Selvakannan (Former: Krishna Kumar, Present: Sai Pradeep), a well known and respected IAS district collector. Along with him, Ganga also works as the sub-collector because she is also an IAS graduate. Saravanan is married to Shanmukavadivu a.k.a. Vadivu and Ramaa is married to Jayachandran.
Ganga is the golden child in Ayyaa's family. She is named after the family goddess. Her sisters and mother are also equally loved and respected dearly by Ayyaa, Naachiyar, Mutharasi and Selvakannan's family.
However, there are also some who do not like Subbulakshmi and her daughters. The main person who totally despises Subbulakshmi and her daughters is Kulasekharan. He hates her a lot because he does not like it that she is sharing spouse space with Naachiyar. Kulasekharan is supported by his daughter, Ilavanji and her husband, Ayyaa's son Karthik. He only wants his sister, Naachiyar to be called Ayyaa's wife and no one else. Therefore he tries all attempts to get rid of Subbulakshmi, Ganga, Ramaa and Charu and banish them from the village. He has tried to **** Selvakannan, tried to separate Ramaa and Jayachandran and also cheated Subbulakshmi into letting him out of jail. Sometimes the attempts he made succeeded slightly, and some failed miserably and even backfired on him. Naachiyar does not give in to Kulasekharan's intentions because she loves Subbulakshmi like her own sister.
Selvakannan has an aunt who lives with him and his parents. Her name is Rasammah, and she has a niece named Manimegalai, whom she wanted Selvakannan to marry. Manimegalai also loves Selvakannan very much, but seeing his insistence on marrying Ganga and also knowing Ganga to be a very good person, she sacrifices her love for their happiness. However, Rasammah does not like it that Ganga has married Selvakannan, and she tries her best to poison Selvakannan's mother, Karpagam's mind into compelling Selvakannan to break bonds with Ganga, but eventually she takes a liking to Ganga and she forgets all about separating them. Karpagam also initially gave in to Rasammah's talk, but she also begins to love and respect Ganga and her family.
Ilavanji is portrayed to be a sensitive woman who does not like Subbulakshmi's family and is always in support of her father, whom she loves very much. She soon gets along slowly with Subbulakshmi's family, but she does not totally forget her hatred towards them. She is usually snobbish and thinks highly of herself. She is very jealous of Ramaa because she is married to her brother and also because everyone in the family except her husband and father loves Subbulakshmi's family a lot. She and Vadivu are both Ayyaa's daughters-in-law. She and Vadivu never easily get along and they always *****. Ilavanji has the support of Mangai in this matter. Mangai is Ganga's best friend, Vishwanathan's mother. Vadivu is a very smart but good girl and she also loves Subbulakshmi's family. She always finds out all of Ilavanji's mischiefs and makes their mother in law, Naachiyar to punish Ilavanji and Mangai. Sometimes Ilavanji, Mangai and Rasammah usually meet up and end up in some mischief. These scenes provide some comedy.
Ganga became pregnant, but her child had to be aborted because she was hit while trying to protect her husband from a raging bull, which was released by Kulasekharan during Vadivu's wedding with Saravanan. The bull hit her, resulting in her abortion. After sometime, Ramaa became pregnant.
Selvakannan had a P.A. named Vandana, a very mysterious and evil girl, who knew that Selvakannan had a brain tumour for a very long time and did not inform his family members about this until the condition worsened and Selvakannan was on his deathbed. All the doctors gave up on him and told the family that he will die in nine days, and no one can prevent that. But Ganga was very strong-willed and believed that her husband can be cured through God's grace. She observed nine different types of penances in these nine days in the name of Goddess Amman. Her family members also did their part by going to Palani and carrying milk pots. Miraculously her paralysed husband was able to move and he was immediately operated and cured. All in the family hated Vandana for who she is and for the fact that she hid the matter of his sickness from them. They also hated her because of her false allegation against Selvakannan that he has married her before marrying Ganga.
To clear Selvakannan from Vandana's allegation, the family decided to meet up with the villagers at the Ellaiyamman temple at the outskirts of the village. The Goddess residing in this temple is very powerful because people will rub grounded chilli paste on Her when they are in trouble, and the Goddess will punish the person at fault by making their whole body burn. So, knowing the power of the Goddess, the family makes Selvakannan and Vandana rub chilli paste on Goddess Ellaiyamman so that she will find out who is guilty in this trouble between Selvakannan and Vandana. To their shock, neither Selvakannan nor Vandana felt their bodies burning. Realising that there is some mischief behind this matter, the priest invokes the Goddess and he tells everyone through the Goddess' words that this matter will be resolved in 60 days. After that, Vandana gets even more evil and mysterious. Everyone in Ganga's family is very annoyed that she is living in Ganga's house till late. She is somehow chased out brutally by Mutharasi, Ilavanji, Charu and Mangai.
One day, Subbulakshmi's pet cow, Lakshmi gave birth to a beautiful baby calf. Lakshmi's mother was given to Subbulakshmi by Naachiyar as a wedding gift. This was a very happy occasion in the family. At the same day, Ganga was tested pregnant! The whole family rejoiced and the women in the family crowded in Ellaiyamman temple to make pongal for the Goddess. But suddenly, winds were blowing and the brick stoves will not catch fire. Then, the women begin to do the Kummi Adi, a folk dance done by Tamil village women in a circle, to appease the Goddess. During the dance, the idol of the Goddess falls flat on the floor. Horrified, the people at the temple tried to carry the idol and put it back in place. But they felt that the idol was very light and hollow. Selvakannan and Ganga was there too, and they realised that the idol was changed into a fake one and the real idol is somewhere else. They now understood that this was why the Goddess did not punish Vandana when she rubbed chilli paste on the Goddess. Initially they all suspected Vandana. After some arbitrations and temple ceremonies, the real idol of the Goddess was found dumped in an unused temple tank. And after some investigation by the police, through Ilavanji, it was found out that Kulasekharan was guilty in changing the idol.
During Ayyaa and his two wives's 60th marriage anniversary ceremony, it was known that Ayyaa married Subbulakshmi for a reason. There is a very dark secret regarding Ayyaa's marriage with Subbulakshmi, and only Ayyaa, Naachiyar and Subbulakshmi know the secret. No one else knows about it, not even Mutharasi. Kulasekharan was also aware of this matter and he very recently tried to find out that secret by filing a case against Subbulakshmi, citing that she is not Ayyaa's legal wife, hoping to find out the secret. This case is still yet to be resolved.
