Niharika Konidela’s ex-husband, Chaitanya reacts to her revelations about their divorce
Recently, Niharika Konidela bared her heart out for the first time about her divorce. In an interaction on Nikhil Vijayendra Simha’s podcast, the diva, in a very dignified manner, talked about her personal life, wherein she stated how she wants to be independent and no longer wants to stay dependent on the wrong person. However, her ex-husband, Chaitanya JV didn’t hesitate and penned his side of the story. Taking to the comments, he asked the podcast host, Nikhil to not represent a one-way version of such a touching topic like divorce. An excerpt from his longish comment can be read as:
“But you should stop trying to use the reach and platform to indirectly try and attach tags of victim and cause with respect to the marriage. This is the second time this is happening. The pain of things not working out and the process and ordeal of healing is the same for both the ends. In the future instead of an indirect implication of history and fit in words like trust, what will be advised is to have all the parties involved and run through the timeline if you are that keen on knowing and making public aware.”
