Sections of the television media have been running news on Taraka Ratna's alleged secret marriage with one Alekhya Reddy. Their version is that the actor married Alekhya at Sanghi Temple in Hyderabad in the presence of the bride's family members and some of his friends.
The actor had reportedly been in a live-in relationship with Alekhya, who was also his costume designer for Nandeeswarudu. Alekhya is said to be related to Vijay Sai Reddy and Elmineti Madhava Reddy, a former Home Minister.
It goes without saying that Tarak had no blessings of his parents for the marriage. His father, Nandamuri Mohana Krishna, had been opposing their relationship, which is cited to be the reason for Tarak's walking out of his home to live with Alekhya.
