2016 has been the year of break ups in Bollywood and south as well. While Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif's split, Farhan Akhtar-Adhuna Akhtar's divorce, Arbaaz- Malaika Arora Khan's separation has shocked fans, celebrity couples down South have had the same effect on fans as they called it quits. Most of them have been unexpected, hence heart wrenching. Here are the break ups that shook the south industry
Kamal Haasan-Gautami split - This one is by the far the most shocking one. After living in together for 13 years, the couple called it quits. Gautami made this announcement through an article on her blog. She had mentioned this was one of the hardest decisions she had to take but since their paths had irreversibly converged, it had come to this. Reports suggested that Kamal Haasan's daughter Shruti Haasan had something to do with the split but Shruti Haasan didn't choose to clarify them. In fact here's what her spokesperson had to say at that time, “She has never commented on anyone’s personal life and decisions. For Shruti, what matters most is standing by, loving and respecting her family — her parents and her sister — no matter what.” As for the split report stated, Gautami wanted out and not Kamala Haasan. When they first started dating, both had mutually decided to live in together as they didn't believe in the institution of marriage. But one thing is clear, it was mature and understanding split on behalf of the couple. Also Read: 5 pictures of Kamal Haasan and Gautami that makes us sad about their split

Amala Paul- AL Vijay's divorce - After dating for three years and being married for two, the south industry was shocked to know that this once in love couple was filing for divorce. There were quite few reasons floating around behind this split. Some reports suggested, AL Vijay's parents' interference may have pulled the trigger, some say Amala's insistence to work even after marriage may have caused friction at home. When AL vijay released a statement on the split, he subtly implied that the sanctity of marriage had been breached, so there were rumours that Amala Paul's alleged closeness with another Tamil actor may have been behind the divorce. Amala Paul chose to remain silent throughout this time.
Divya Unni-Sudhir Shekharan
This was a shocker of a news in the Mollywood industry when Divya-Sudhir called it quits after 14 years. Some say, Sudhir's extra marital affair was the reason behind this split, but some say Sudhir was not too happy about Divya Unni pursuing her career. In fact he had asked her to shut down her dance school, but she didn't give in.
Lissy-Priya Darshan's split
Now this couple had parted ways long ago but it was only recently they were granted divorce. It was a bitter battle between Lissy and Priyadarshan through all this time. After the divorce was finally granted, Lissy thanked all her fans for their support through this trying time. Ego issues between the couple was the major reason behind their split.
