Actor Tarak Ratna, who is NTR's grandson and Nandamuri Mohan Krishna's son, has tied the knot with his girlfriend Alekya Reddy at secret wedding ceremony at Sanghi temple in Hyderabad on Thursday night. According to sources, the Nandeeswarudu actor had moved out of his family and had been living-in with fashion designer Alekya for the past one-and-a-half year.
Aleyka Reddy is a divorcee and the estranged daughter-in-law of late home minister Madhava Reddy. Earlier, she has designed costumes for Tarak Ratna for his last release Nandeeswarudu. Nandamuri family members were said to be against the union, and few of them were reportedly absent on the occasion. Despite numerous relatives attending the occasion, including uncle Balakrishna, it was a quiet day for the groom.
Tarak Ratna was said to have met Aleyka on the sets of his movie Nandeeswarudu, where she used to visit him everyday. His close friends had thought that he was just flirting with her, but later they came to know that she was designing his costumes for the film. Many of them were surprised by the news about his marriage with her.
However, it was a low-key wedding for Tarak Ratna and Alekya and the actor is said to be hosting a party for the Telugu film fraternity. "Mohan Krishna is one the richest among NTR's seven sons and could afford a big fat wedding but due to Tarak's relationship with the divorcee, the family stayed away. Despite repeated requests by the family, Tarak decided to follow his heart," TOI quotes a sources as saying.
