Sai Dharam Tej was earlier linked with heroine Regina Cassandra. But he broke up with her. Recently, reports appeared in media that mega family has arranged a match to him with his uncle Nagababu's daughter Niharika Konidela.
Niharika is Sai Dharam Tej's maradalu (maternal uncle's daughter). Some media houses have reported that Sai Dharam Tej is going to tie the knots with Niharika who is also successful TV anchor and movie artiste.
Niharika debuted as female lead opposite Naga Shourya in 'Oka Manasu', which was box office dud. After that she has not appeared in any other movies though she continued doing TV shows and web series.
On the other hand, Sai Dharam Tej issued a statement saying she is like his sister and linking with him her is sacrilege.
Refuting these rumours, Sai’s spokesperson said “Sai Dharam Tej is upset and has condemned baseless rumors published by some media houses about his marriage with Niharika Konidela who is like his sister.
He said they are like one family from childhood and bonding between them is like brother sister.
He requested media houses to please cross check facts with official sources before publishing such sensitive news especially related to a girl. Such baseless stories will hurt sentiments and it wouldn’t be a healthy journalism.”
