CHENNAI: Social media erupted with speculations and questions being raised on whether procedures stipulated by the Indian surrogacy laws were followed by the Kollywood couple -Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan, who welcomed twin baby boys on Monday.
While the duo has not made an official statement, some unverified reports surfaced that the babies were conceived through surrogacy.
