Actor-singer-music composer Premgi Amaren recently married his longtime partner, Indu.

The wedding ceremony took place on 9 June, at the Murugan temple in Thiruttani, Tamil Nadu, and was attended by close family and friends.

The happy announcement was made by Premgi’s brother, filmmaker Venkat Prabhu, who took to social media to share a collection of heartwarming photos from the wedding.

Premgi had been dating Indu for more than two years.

Since the photos from the wedding ceremony surfaced, fans and well-wishers have been extending their warm wishes to the couple on social media.

In addition to the couple’s family members, colleagues, and friends from the film industry, such as Jai, Vaibhav, Ramya Subramanian, Aravind Akash, and Shiva, also graced the occasion.

Premgi, originally named Prem Kumar, is the younger son of composer and director Gangai Amaran.

In 2005, Premgi embarked on his journey as an independent music director with the film Gnabagam Varuthe, which starred his brother.

Following this, he composed music for Agathiyan’s Nenjathai Killathe (2008), Achamindri (2016), RK Nagar (2019), Manmadha Leelai (2022), and Venkat Prabhu’s yet-to-be-released, Party.

Premgi’s initial breakthrough came with a significant role in the 2006 movie Vallavan, featuring Silambarasan. Nonetheless, it was his brother Venkat Prabhu’s directorial debut, Chennai 600028, released in 2007, that truly launched his career in Tamil cinema.

Since then, he has acted in all of his brother’s movies, such as Saroja (2008), Goa (2010), Mankatha (2011), Biriyani (2013), Massu Engira Masilamani (2015), Chennai 600028 II (2016), and Maanaadu (2021), among others.

‘I’m not a great actor’

During an interview, Premgi candidly admitted that throughout his career as a composer spanning over a decade, no filmmakers other than Venkat Prabhu have approached him to compose music for their films.

“I’m not a great actor, but I find acting to be much simpler. All I need to do is follow my brother’s instructions. On the contrary, music composition requires creativity; each song’s melody is a gift from God. Therefore, it is more demanding,” he added, in the interview.

It has been reported that Premgi is also cast in The Greatest of All Time (GOAT), directed by Venkat Prabhu and starring Thalapathy Vijay.

The film is expected to release on 5 September.
