The actress’ marraige was soon called off after the businessman’s family refused to accept their ties, while of late Nagarjuna himself has alleged that he was being “forced” by some groups to marry her even though he was not interested in the wedlock. On March 28, a photograph of Kotoor marrying Nagarjuna at a temple had gone viral, among other pictures of the marriage. She was reportedly in a relationship with Nagarjuna for the past couple of years, the police said. Bigg Boss Kannada 2 Fame Bullet Prakash Hospitalised After Suffering From A Liver Infection.
She tied the knot in a simple ceremony at the Byatarayanapura Ganapathi temple in the presence of her family members. However, the groom’s family accused her of forcefully marrying Nagarjuna by issuing threats. “The matter reached the police station in Kolar. We had called both the families to the station for their statements,” the police added.
Soon after the marriage, when the actress went to Nagarjuna’s ancestral house, she was reportedly not allowed inside while the latter’s family had allegedly asked the couple not to enter the house, terming the marriage as “invalid”, the police said quoting Kotoor ‘s statement. The police added that Kotoor had accused Nagarjuna of constantly delaying the wedding. Later they decided to tie the knot with the support of the former’s family and community leaders.
“His family had bad-mouthed me, my job and even issued death threats to me if I did not let him go. So we requested to hold talks in Kolar instead of discussing the issue in public,” the actress told the police. Kotoor was a contestant in Bigg Boss Kannada Season 7. She was a scriptwriter for TV serials before entering the show hosted by Kiccha Sudeep. She had also acted in a supporting role in Haripriya’s Soojidaara.
