Niharika Konidela and Chaitanya JV, once united in matrimony in 2020, officially parted ways in 2023, choosing different paths in life. The announcement of their divorce in July 2023 left many curious minds speculating, but details remained scarce. Recently, Niharika shed light on her personal odyssey post-divorce during a candid conversation on a podcast hosted by Nikhil Vijayendra Simha.
In this exclusive interview, Niharika shared her sentiments, emphasizing her desire to prioritize self-growth and support her parents. She disclosed, “I am at a stage in life where I want to focus on myself. You can’t be dependent on the wrong person. I’ve been divorced for almost two years now, only I know how much it hurt me.” Expressing gratitude for her supportive father, Nagababu, she added, “My divorce has shown me the value of family.”
Reflecting on the unexpected turns in her marriage, Niharika confessed, “Everyone gets married hoping it’s for a lifetime, but things weren’t what I expected. I am only 30; I haven’t closed off my heart to love. But first, I want to be independent and work on myself before committing to a relationship. For now, I’m single.”
Chaitanya JV also weighed in on the conversation, addressing the unfair negativity surrounding Niharika. In a thoughtful comment on the podcast, he expressed appreciation for efforts to counter unwarranted criticism and advised a comprehensive understanding of the situation. Chaitanya remarked, “In the future, instead of an indirect implication of history and fit in words like trust, what will be advised is to have all the parties involved and run through the timeline if you are that keen on knowing and making the public aware.”
The couple, who exchanged vows in Udaipur in 2020, faced persistent rumors of separation, eventually filing for divorce in April 2023 and finalizing it by July. Niharika had previously shared the news on Instagram, although the post has since been deleted.
Niharika Konidela’s openness about her journey post-divorce serves as an inspiring narrative of resilience and self-discovery, transcending societal expectations and embracing personal growth.
