Who was behind Vijay Deverakonda’s link-up with Telugu-Tamil actress Niharika Konidela,the heiress of AndhraPradesh’s ‘Mega Family’ her father is the veteran actor Nagendra Babu. Her uncles are Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan and her cousin is Ramcharan Teja.
Nikarika is known as the’Mega Princess’ in Andhra. When rumours of “affair” and “impending marriage” with VijayDevarkonda started the actor was taken aback.
A close friend reveals, “Sometimes there is smoke without fire. But this was like a fire without any matchstick. Sometimes popular actors are seen in the company of women and are linked to them thereafter. BUT VIJAY HAD NEVER MET NIHARIKA, not before the event for Niharika’s new film Surykantha where Vijay showed up as a respect to Niharika’s family.”
Niharika’s father had recently played Vijay’s father in his hit film Geetha Govindam .
“And Vijay has a lot of respect for the Mega Family. So he agreed to attend her film’s event.But did so as a brother,since her own brother Varun Tej was not present at the event,” says Vijay’s friend.
Curiously not a single prominent member of Niharika’s family was there on her big day, not even her own brother VarunTej.
As for the linkup it sounds like someone’s idea of publicity for Niharika’s film, though planting stories of her “marriage” to a star she had never met seems a but excessive.
