When Bhanupriya didn’t go to school for fear of becoming a joke
Bhanupriya’s real name is Manga Bhama. He has no prior film background. While she was studying in school, Bhagyaraja Guru came there one day. He wanted to cast a teenage girl for his film, who knows how to dance well. He selected Bhanupriya, but during a photoshoot, he felt that Bhanu was too young, so he was not cast in the film. As far as Bhanu herself is concerned, she did not go to school again, because she had already said in school that she was playing in films and if she had gone to school after the film was out of hand, she would have been mocked.
divorce from husband
Bhanupriya’s personal life was in the news at one time when she married an NRI. Bhanupriya’s husband Adarsh Kaushal lives in the US and is an NRI Digital Graphics Engineer by profession. Bhanu’s parents were against this marriage but on June 14, 1998, both of them got married in California. Bhanupriya became a mother in 2003 and gave birth to daughter Abhinaya.

Came in the headlines in 2019…
The actress’s name was embroiled in controversies after Bhanupriya was accused of exploiting a minor daughter by the maid’s mother. A complaint was lodged against Bhanupriya by the mother of the 14-year-old victim at a police station in Andhra Pradesh. The victim’s mother had complained that Bhanupriya hired her daughter to help with the domestic work but later started exploiting her. Victim’s mother P. Prabhavati has alleged that the actress took her daughter with her to Chennai a year and a half ago to help with household chores. He (Bhanupriya) had also promised to give ten thousand rupees a month’s salary but he did not pay even once.
