Shobha, Prakashraj deny rumours of their marriage
Shobha Rani, chief of mega star Chiranjeevi led Praja Rajyam’s women’s wing Mahila Rajyam, has vehemently denied media reports that she has recently married actor Prakashraj in Chennai in the presence of PRP leaders, stating that whole issue is a false story created by the media. She claims that the photos published on the Internet are fake. Prakashraj too has denied marrying Shobha Rani, saying his divorce petition is still pending in court.
“It is far from true. I know Prakashraj. I met him at a shooting when I went there to meet a director I knew. He is just an acquaintance. I too have received the pictures of my so-called wedding with Prakashraj and they are fake,” Shobha Rani says, adding that she is involved in public life and has no time for such flings.
Shobha Rani was separated from her husband Ranganayakulu after she lodged a police complaint alleging he had been harassing her physically and mentally with demands for dowry. The Sanjeeva Reddy Nagar police registered a case against him in April 2008, but could not arrest him for one full year as he had was absconding. In April 2009, they took him into custody when he returned to his home in Yellareddyguda. He is now on out on bail.
Earlier, Prakashraj had filed an application for divorce from his wife Lalitha Kumari at the family court in Chennai. The star couple had been the popular pair of South India and has three children. The court is yet to announce their divorce.
