On June 19, Meghana, who is also expecting the couple’s first child, had posted a moving post on Instagram dedicated to her late husband.

In the heart wrenching post, she said, “Chiru, I have tried and tried again but I am unable to put in words what I want to tell you. All the words in the world cannot describe what you mean to me. My friend, my lover, my partner, my child, my confidante, my HUSBAND- you are much more than all of this. You are a piece of my soul Chiru."

"An unfathomable pain shoots through my soul everytime I see the door and you don't walk in shouting "I am home". There is a sinking feeling in my heart when I can't touch you every minute of everyday. Like a thousand deaths, slow and painful. But then, like a magic spell I feel you around me. Every time I feel weak, you are around me like a guardian angel.You love me so much that you just couldn't," she added.

On June 7, Chiranjeevi Sarja died in Bengaluru in a private hospital.

The hospital statement had said the actor was brought to the hospital at around 2:30 pm in an unconscious state and that his pupils were found to be dilated. Even as doctors tried to resuscitate him, he did not respond to the treatment.

The late actor is known for his movies like Vayuputra, Khaki, Amma I Love You, and Sinnga among others. Incidentally, Vayuputra won him the Innovative Film Award for Best Debut Actor (Male).

He had started his film career as an assistant director for his uncle Arjun Sarja's movies for a period of four years.

Meghana and Chiranjeevi had married on May 2, 2018 after several years of dating.
