Venkataram Laxman aka Huccha Venkat and Rachana were one of the finalists of Super Jodi season 2. The actor-singer who is popularly known as Firing Star in Kannada film industry was said to fall in love with his co-contestant. Rachana who is a small-time actress clarified her stand by saying she never loved Huccha. She further added that she agreed to partner him because Huccha respected women and she considered herself safe while doing the reality show.
In a tell-all report by FilmiBeat, Rachana was quoted saying, “Everybody knows how much Venkat respects women and how much he fights for them. I thought I would be safe if I did the reality show with him and hence agreed to be a part of the show, and nothing else.” She further added, “When Super Jodi started, everything was fine for the first couple of weeks. But, as time flew by, I think he got attracted to me. He then asked me to marry him, to which I casually refused. But, he kept on asking me repeatedly to marry him. I kept on rejecting his proposal, and then he kept quiet all of a sudden.”
Continuing her stand on not having to do with Huccha Venkat’s suicide attempt, Radhika said, “We were just contestants on the show and nothing else. But, Venkat kept on forcing me to marry him. He was behind my back for the same reason. I did not like the wedding. I knew my family would not agree too. There is no love between us and I have not given any word to him”. Meanwhile, Huccha Venkat who is quite a controversial figure courtesy his eccentric acts and statements is currently recuperating.
According to the sources, the hot-headed actor is creating a ruckus at the medical facility and not co-operating with nurses and other staff members over his failed love life. This is not the first time Huccha is in the news due to his personal life. In 2014, he claimed Kannada actress Ramya to be his legally-wedded wife and giving an explicit-laden interview against her. Ramya had rebuffed his claims and also filed a police complaint against the person.
