In an interview with Times of India, Meghana recalled the tragic night when her husband passed away.  “The day started off like any normal Sunday. Prerana (Dhruva Sarja’s wife) and I were just outside the house along with Dhruva when my father-in-law called us saying Chiru had collapsed. We had never seen him like that. He'd lost consciousness and then regained it for a bit." She also stated that his last words to her were “Neen yenu tension togobeda, yenagolla nanige (Don't get tensed. Nothing will happen to me).” She also stated that she will be taking her son to the site of Chiranjeevi’s memorial for the first time since his birth.  

Chiranjeevi and Meghana got married in May 2018. Meghana was five months pregnant when Chiranjeevi died. She welcomed their son, Jr Chiru in October 2020.
