It was reported in these columns some time back that Trisha and Tollywood’s Rana Daggubati have been ‘close friends’ for the past many months. The Telugu press carried news item claiming that the duo even got ‘engaged’ to each other at a secret and simple ceremony attended only by the relatives and friends of both the families.
Thouth neither Rana nor Trisha have openly acknowledged their relationship in public, they have been spotted hanging out and enjoying each other’s company at many places in the recent past. Reports trickling from Hyderabad now say that relatives and members of Rana’s family are not so much ‘in favour of’ having an actress as the bahu (daughter-in-law) of the family.
In a set of photographs shot for the photoshoot of a magazine, Trisha and Rana had posed getting intimate with each other, giving rise to speculations that they were planning to take their relationship to the ‘next’ level. Rana hails from a very healthy family and is the grandson of producer and film-maker D. Ramanaidu. Rana is also related to Telugu stars Venkatesh and Nagarjuna.
Rana’s parents reportedly are against their son planning to lead the rest of his life with an actress. Unconfirmed reports say that they have advised him strongly against marrying her and bringing her home as their bahu.
