Probably for the first time after their marriage, newlywed celebrity couple, digital media entrepreneur Ram Veerapaneni and singer Sunitha came together for an interview hosted by popular anchor Suma. Their wedding held in the outskirts of Hyderabad on the premises of a temple was strictly for family and select friends and attracted immense media attention. The couple was in a buoyant mood sharing several incidents and experiences that preceded their marriage in December 2020.
According to the interview, Ram Veerapaneni and Sunitha have been friends for many years now and shared a professional rapport. Many years ago, Ram had given a hint about his interest in Sunitha though marriage clearly wasn’t on the latter’s mind. “I didn’t want my children to feel insecure, which is a reason why didn’t consider marriage for several years. Ram has always been precise with his words and talks to the point. I didn’t see the proposal coming from him,” Sunitha mentioned.
Sunitha’s children, Aakash and Shreya, were keen that their mother started life on a new slate. The COVID-19 lockdown phase did a lot to take their relationship forward. “I was the one who asked Ram whether he plans to be single all his life or has anything in mind for the future. He asked me in return if I was acting innocent about his interest in me. Then, we decided to meet,” the singer added. The marriage proposal materialised over a long drive. Ram’s parents and Sunitha conversed over a video call and the marriage was fixed days after that.
Reportedly, the video and the images of her engagement that went viral wasn’t an ‘engagement’ after all. It was, in fact, the first time the families of Ram and Sunitha had met and took a step to formalise the relationship. Ram expressed his happiness about how Sunitha’s family had accepted his presence gracefully. “I was fully obsessed with work before, spending almost 18-hours at it every day. It’s been a complete turnaround. The wedding was so perfectly organised that even if I go back in time, I don’t know if we can do it any better,” Ram had shared.
The couple revealed that they are in the process of discovering their likes and dislikes, cherishing their own space. “Previously, I used to sleep with my door open. I was quite used to many people around me, mom, dad and the kids. Now, it’s only I and Ram together. It’s unusual but I’m liking it that my children are managing their lives on their own. They were so mature in handling my decision (to marry) that not a single question was asked,” the singer stated. Though they received much uncalled-for criticism online for their wedding, Ram and Sunitha have rightly decided to ignore the trolls and embark on a new chapter in their lives.
