Little did Chiru know that attending an inter-caste marriage would trigger such a storm. The bride's parents are accusing Chiranjeevi of using the occassion to score political points. The girl's uncle reacting to Chiranjeevi's presence at the marriage, said, "It's an illegal marriage. Chiranjeevi and the boy's father, Padma Rao, arranged this marriage." But the newly wed couple who invited Chiru, did not see any 'politics'. The bride Nalini, said, "We both agreed for marriage. My husband and me had invited Chiranjeevi."
The bridgegroom Chetan, speaking on the controversy said, "Our marriage is a love marriage. It has absolutely nothing to do with any political party or any prominent political person."
Nalini's parents, however, insisted on calling Chiranjeevi 'hypocrat' and reminded him of his disapproval when his own daughter had eloped to marry a person outside her caste. On second thoughts for the politician in Chiranjeevi attending this wedding was perhaps more than social courtesy.
