There have been strong reports suggesting that Niharika Konidela, the sister of Varun Tej, and Chaitanya JV have officially divorced. Niharika had entered into matrimony with Chaitanya, a techie based in Hyderabad, in December 2020. However, both individuals have deleted their wedding photos from their Instagram accounts.
While the exact reason behind their split remains unclear, it is speculated that irreconcilable differences may have played a role in their decision to seek a mutual divorce. Neither Niharika nor Chaitanya has addressed or confirmed the rumors surrounding their divorce. The initial speculation began when they removed all traces of their wedding from their social media profiles. There are expectations that Niharika might make an official announcement regarding her relationship status in the near future.
In March 2022, Niharika, who is the daughter of actor and producer Naga Babu, created a buzz by deactivating her Instagram account, fueling rumors of trouble in her marriage with Chaitanya Jonnalagadda.
It is worth noting that Niharika and Chaitanya’s marriage was arranged. Initially, their relationship blossomed from love and eventually led to an arranged marriage. Chaitanya Jonnalagadda happens to be the son of J Prabhakar Rao, who holds the position of Guntur Inspector General of Police. The couple got engaged in August 2020 and had a grand wedding in December, attended by numerous celebrities including Allu Arjun, Ram Charan, Pawan Kalyan, Chiranjeevi, and members of the Konidela-Allu family, making it a star-studded affair held in Udaipur.
Recently, rumors of Niharika Konidela divorcing her husband resurfaced after Chaitanya Jonnalagadda was noticeably absent from Varun Tej’s engagement ceremony with Lavanya Tripathi. Niharika shared a few photos from her brother Varun’s engagement, which sparked comments questioning the absence of Chaitanya, such as “Bava didn’t come,” “Where is Chay?” and “Where is your husband, Nihaa?”
