Praveen (Buji) runs a musical orchestra (Saibaba orchestra) for the past five years. He was quite popular in the Nellore area and was married twice before, to Dolly (daughter of Guntur ex DSP) and Swapna (second heroine in NTR's film Subbu) in the past. He also has a son. There were rumors that Bujji had married Bhargavi (on 12 February 2006) in the presence of his friends at Murali Krishna hotel (in Nellore).

The suicide notes say that Bhargavi and Bujji got married in 2006 and were separated in the past few months. Bhargavi also wrote in the letter that she distanced herself from him after rising to fame with the release of Ashta Chamma. He also claimed that Bhargavi's mother had created a rift between them after Bhargavi got film offers.

Bhargavi's father confirmed that his daughter never married Bujji. He also said that she did not show any signs of strain in her visit. Bhargavi's parents reiterated that she was a strong girl and would never attempt suicide.

Police department confirmed that Bujji might have killed Bhargavi by using a knife (as eight knife marks were found on her). Bujji might have consumed poison after killing Bhargavi as there was foam in Bujji's mouth.[1]
