"I am a married man and such rumours can definitely hamper my marriage. As a husband, it is my responsibility not to bring in a situation where my wife would have to protect me from other women. Chirutha was my debut film and since then the rumours about me secretly marrying Neha and going on a honeymoon started doing the rounds. My dad had asked me not to take this false news seriously," Ram Charan had told on the TV chat show.

He had also revealed that his wife, who was his friend before the marriage, has asked about the rumours. Ram Charan had added, "Upasana and I were good friends then and even she knew that these were just made up news. Even after we got married, we made sure that this news would never create any problems for us. Upasana is now busy with her profession and she understands every bit of it."
