Kannada film industry faced a major setback early last month when they lost one of their top heroes - Chirajeevi Sarja who succumbed to a massive heart attack and was declared dead on the 7th of June. The actor was taken to a hospital after he developed uneasiness and complained of pain. Apparently, the doctors could not revive him and he was declared dead when he was brought to the hospital in Jayanagar, Bangalore. He was the nephew of actor Arjun Sarja. Chiranjeevi’s cremation took place at his farmhouse which was attended by several film stars from the Kannada film industry including leading actors Sudeep and Yash. Chiranjeevi was only 39 years old and was married to actress Meghana Raj who acted in the Tamil film Kaadhal Solla Vandhen. Meghana Raj is the only daughter to film actors Sundar Raj and Pramila Joshai. Her father Sundar has acted in more than 180 films, predominantly in the Kannada language, while her mother Pramila Joshai is a noted Kannada film actress and film producer. She completed her schooling from Baldwin Girls' High School and holds Bachelor's degree in psychology at Christ University, Bangalore. She made her acting debut in the 2009 Telugu film Bendu Apparao R.M.P. 

Meghana Raja who is also expecting her first child has now made a post about her husband on her official Instagram page on the 30th day of Chiranjeevi’s demise. Meghana also pens a positive note about Chiranjeevi on how much he still makers her happy with all the memories. Meghana had invited Chiranjeevi’s friends and cousins and family for a small get-together as a tribute to her husband on the 30th day of his demise. She has also shared a few photos where you can see all of them smiling. She explains that her husband is the reason for them to smile. Here is her emotional post - “My Dearest Chiru ....
