Former Kannada Big Boss contestant and actress Chaitra Kotoor on Thursday attempted suicide by consuming phenyl at her residence. Soon after the incident, Chaitra was rushed to a local hospital where her condition is stated to be stable. The actress had announced her wedding to Mandya-based businessman Nagarjuna. However, according to police sources, the marriage was on the rocks from the start, as Nagarjuna's family refused to accept their relationship. Apparently even late Nagarjuna alleged that he was "forced" by some people to marry her against his wishes. On March 28, a photograph of Chaitra marrying Nagarjuna at a temple had gone viral, among other pictures of the marriage. She was reportedly in a relationship with Nagarjuna for the past couple of years, the police said.
She tied the knot in a simple ceremony at the Byatarayanapura Ganapathi temple in the presence of her family members. Soon after the wedding, when the actress went to Nagarjuna's ancestral house, she was reportedly not allowed inside while the latter's family had allegedly asked the couple not to enter the house, terming the marriage "invalid", the police said quoting Chaitra's statement. The police added that Chaitra had accused Nagarjuna of constantly delaying the wedding. Later they decided to tie the knot with the support of the former's family and community leaders. "His family had bad-mouthed me, my job and even issued death threats to me if I did not let him go. So, we requested to hold talks in Kolar instead of discussing the issue in public," the actress told the police. "The matter reached the police station in Kolar. We had called both the families to the station for their statements," the police added. Kotoor was a contestant in Bigg Boss Kannada Season 7. She was a scriptwriter for TV serials before entering the show hosted by Kiccha Sudeep. She had also acted in a supporting role in Haripriya's "Soojidaara".
