Srija, the youngest daughter of Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi created a flutter in October 2007 when she married Sirish and then fled to Delhi where the 19-year-old bride approached court asking for protection from her family. The couple has a two-and-half-year-old daughter.

Now even before the images of her ‘cinematic’ marriage could fade away from public memory, Srija drove to the Central Crime Station Police in the city on Monday and lodged a dowry harrassment case against her husband, Sirish Bharadwaj and her mother-in-law.

On Monday morning, Srija approached the CCS police and lodged a complaint against Sirish alleging that he was physically and mentally torturing her for last few months for dowry. According to sources, Srija told the cops that out of love, she had already given several crores of rupees to Sirish who ventured into event management business after marriage. “But there seems to no end to their greed,” she pointed out.

City police commissioner A K Khan said that Srija alleged that her husband and mother-in-law had been ill treating her and pestering her for additional dowry of Rs 1.5 crore for quite some time.”we have registered case and investigating the matter,” he said.

Based on her complaint, the police registered case against her husband and mother-in-law under section 498-A(subjecting a married woman to cruelty)IPC and sections of the Dowry Prohibition Act.

Subsequently, the women police station of the CCS picked up Sirish for questioning, though arrest is yet to be made. His parents are also likely to be grilled by the cops.

Chiranjeevi’s family which had boycotted Srija, post her love marriage, have reconciled after she gave birth to a daughter, who is now two and half years old. Since then she is being invited to family functions.

Thing appeared normal as late as the Valentine day, this year. The two were interviewed by local TV channels and reiterated their love for each other.

But, ever since she reunited with her family members the distance between the couple started growing. Srija now feel more secured with her parents than with her husband with whom she flee away to New Delhi alleging a life threat from her father and Uncle Pawan Kalyan.

  1. dont be stupid you idiots, do go to court for the childs sake, imagine how the child would feel, keep your stupid drama in you rooms.

  2. Aren’t you living in India, dont you know whats going on in next door. Don’t call thats a drama its real life, I was hearing so many greedy mother-in-laws and other family members. Unbelievable torture,abuse, barinwashing their male children, this type of harassment and you call it a drama. You know what I think, you are a guy, thats why you puting this woman down. That woman has to survive in order to keep that child alive. She has to standup for herself and her child sake.

  3. Hey srija if u wanna go separate & want to settlt down wit u r parents, go away. Y u r unnecesary filing dowry harassment case against u r husband.Listening to u r family members words dont spoil 1 innocent guy life.U Gals have a powerful weapon against guys “lodging dowry harassment case” even if dey hav not done anything.

  4. Is Life so easy? get together whenever you want and leave when you dont want and file a case? Srija…you should have thought many times before marrying this guy and pulling your dad’s name and family prestige to the street…wouldn’t your dad have worried when he was at your cousin Allu Arjun’s marriage that took place recently coz he couldn’t conduct in the same way to his own daughter???? OMG…young people are crazy..you hand over your happiness on other’s hands..like you will be happy only when you marry your love or whatever..You should have your happiness in your own hands and not in the other person’s…you know what?? Enjoy Life and Be Happy!!

  5. Your very correct Boss many girls use this fault weapon dowry harassment, if they dont like or not able to get along. Why will that boy harass Chirajeevis daughter knowing the consequence. I dont know whether police will investigate the case without any partiality.

  6. How dis people r ? How can she hate a person whom she loved him so much. I am damn sure he cannot harrass her coz he knw da consequences. U knw Nisha her uncle Pawan kalyan & father wer threatning dem both  wen dey both got married. Her parents & family members r so popular, politically powerful & ofcourse finacially 2. Wen dey r so powerful do u think dis guy will do lik dis. In dis case i think she s d culprit. But dis s a nice brain wash by her family members.

  8. i think both of u are being biased. how would u know if she was not really tortured by her in-laws and husband? they both got married very young. and it’s definitely bcos of her family background tat her husband and his family supported when she wanted to run away from the house.  
     
    u think if she was from a normal middle-class family, they would have get their son married to her at such a young age? and tat too without her parent’s permission? they, of course, know once a child is born her family will accept her again.  
     
    and if he really loves her why did he use her father’s money to start a business? jus bcos they belong to a wealthy family, all the fault doesnt necessarily have to be on them!

  9. News which are presented in media does not show the true picture of the issue….they are just hype everything……i feel very sad for that small kid……

  10. Cool Srija

    First love didn’t work; ok; it is not something unheard of; or cannot be dealt with. Chuck him. Get back to Chennai. Relax for some time. Fall in love again.

    Many of the Indian males behave like your coward husband. They try to use ‘Marraige’ and ‘Love’ as means for various ends. That is why people like me write against ‘ saving marriages at any cost’. This is exactly why I write in favour of Divorce and Prab-Nayan. If husbands know divorce is not difficult and his wife would chuck him for a new life he wouldn’t have bad ideas; before loving nor after marrying. As usual the West is Right. We Indians are still fools.

  12. Gals like u r so stupid to falling in love and breaking it…….atlast the small kid is going to suffer………..people  like u always set bad examples ruining u r life as well as others also…..

  13. Is freedom and independence a disgusting idea? We foolishly restrict ourselves and suffer. Did you read my comment properly you dim wit?

  14. A bill on woman divorcing husbands instantly with entitlement to all his property must be brought to parliment immediately. The law should be enacted as soon as possible. There is no other way to deal with bad Indian males. 

  15. And hereditary wealth should go to girl children. India is suffering because of male dominance since the times of Ramayana. Indian legacy is stupid. We must shove it into bay of bengal without any further delay. To bring inter sex balance radical laws must be brought in.

  16. Indian legacy is not only stupid but a failure too. Imagine a country(UK) which is less than 1/20th transports its troops by sea for more than 15000 miles to cause defeat India. Japanese occupation of Eastern China is not such a shame. And muslims defeated us and ruled us for more than 500 years destroying 60000 temples. All because of our stupid culture. Get rid of it and move on. 

  17. Ram ethukagavo kaatuku poraram! Sita pinnadi porangalam. Why? Evlau stupid. She could have let him go if others and other things were more important for him. She should have remarried someone who treated her as most important.

  18. Vasin is a fucker looks for others wife and gal friends….rotten mind…….evanuku aduthvan nalla santhosama oruthi oda eruntha pudikathu….divorce pannaum solluvan…th…di… payan……athu enna da ella page unnoda comment errukur?nee enna avlo periya appatakkara???pudigi mathri mess….unnoda freedom and corrupt historyum kuppaila podu ……

  19. The only reason other have sucessfully looted is bcas we dont have the unity…..so easily others have destoryed and ruled us…..i thnk its not with the culture……..Family is the basic unit of society and it had to be preserved to maximum extent…divorce must be a final thing if nothing works out…that too in this case there is a kid…..People have to take decision wisely at any stage……srija had commited mistake and she is trying to repicate again it seems……i guess her husband is not such a fool to welcome the enemity of a very powerful person in Andra…there would be some hidden facts…i may be wrong in my assesment but there is also a chance like this…..getting divorce for petty things in the name of freedom and independence will be a disastrous one..

  20. Senthil everybody have their own way of thinking…why u r getting tensed abt vasin…its his point of view…just comment in a better annd proper manner…maintain pretty decent laungauge…

  21. @ Vasin: where the hell are you living mate? Not in India I suppose.  Too much of something is also bad. things have changed  a lot in india in the past 10 years, trouble is we are now having both extremes. this girls case is a perfect example for too much freedom and independence without much education or guidance. No point having some great big degrees and having loads of money, if you dont know how to choose what you want in life. 

  22. Dei Senthil Antha couple santhoshama illa; athanala thaan naan comment elthinen. Nee enna olarra santhoshama irntha pidikathunu? Thanni potrikiya?

  23. @vasin : U always have all our support vasin 🙂 .  U never said anything wrong. U mearly stated ur views, and so did we all. Just that sometimes we are hit by ure opinion which sounds very feministic  to us all.
    Women will vote for u any time. Are you a male tho? I ain’t questioning it! Don’t mean any offense, but never seen a male talking abt women issues  so deeply as you do.

  24. Dei Guy, Nee enna Guy’a ella Gay’a…. Dei pottai en maganae soothae mudinu erru… Unnai yaru keta, sandhulae sindhu paadunnu.

  25. I feared I have self contradicted. Of course I am a male but I know we discover 10 good things but create 15 problems; no good. If woman have more say, power and independence they will stop us creating problems.

  28. Infact chiru elder daughter sushmita was a grand marriage in hitex.How he feel whn his young daughter bring bad name to him.Poor parents

  29. Woman’s position is similar to small men against big powerful men. We all should support those in less favourable positions. If everybody or groups are equal or at least have a good physical, psychological and financial positions everyone would think twice before exploiting others.

  30. hi i agree with vasan in giving the family wealth to girls.But he dont have any rights in talking about our history in a bad way.If a freedom of speech is given it doesnt mean you have the right to degrade once own hostory.Only in india ppl degrade themself thei history.No where u can see the same thing.Britsihers when they left india they are far sure that ppl like vasin will b there who can degrade their own hostories.A person who dont turn up and give the importance to their hostories are equal to ________ .U can just fill it up.
