Divya Spandana is a determined woman. Once she focuses on something, other issues would be put aside. During her acting career, Ramya wasn’t involved in any from-reel-to-real relationships. Though she has acted in various films, co-starring many male colleagues, Spandana put a clear line between work and personal life.

Divya Spandana father

Ramya was born on 29 November 1982 in Karnataka to a single mom. Her mother Ranjitha was a senior member of Congress Party. Spandana used to say that she was the granddaughter of S.M Krishna, who was the former Chief minister of Karnataka.

Divya Spandana’s foster father was RT Narayan, an industrialist. He was a friend of Spandana’s family and had funded her education since high school.

Divya had lived with her father RT Narayan at the Taj West End since she studied in Grade 8. She only moved to a different house she bought in 2014 after her father’s death. The actress and politician said moving into her own house was an act of letting go of the past about her foster father.

  • Made-up stories about her father

Sharing about her family, Ramya said she had no biological father and this led to many sad stories in her childhood. Growing up as Divya Spandana without a surname caused her to make up stories about her dad whenever her teachers mentioned this topic.

Divya Spandana said when people raised such questions as what one’s parent did for a living, she had to lie about her father. One year she said her father had died in a plane crash, while another year people heard her saying he was in America. Spandana would tell others anything about her dad so that they would stop asking questions.

During her childhood, Ramya had to lie about her father's whereabouts.

The former Sandalwood Queen admitted that her mother also encouraged her lying about the missing father, simply because she was too young then and could not understand things fully.

  • Unconditional support from a foster father

It was Ramya’s foster father Narayan who supported her throughout her secondary schoolyears. When her mother couldn’t afford the fee for her excursion, Narayan paid Rs 10,000 for it. When she applied a course in St Joseph’s College, it’s also Narayan to ask senior Congress leader SM Krishna to write a recommendation letter for her.

In 2013, when she was unsure about her political and filming career choice, Divya Spandana refered to her father Narayan who urged her to go ahead. The day she filed her papers, Ramya’s father died of cardiac arrest.

Two days after Narayan’s death, a man named Venkatesh Babu claimed he was Divya Spandana’s biological father on mass media. However, it turned out to be a political strategy from opponents who wanted to defeat a newbie like her. In 2014, she eventually won the election and represented Mandya in the Parliament.

Final words

With over a decade working in the film industry, and another decade serving her political mission, Divya Spandana is now an experienced player in both fields. Though she hasn’t found a reliable man to accompany, we believe Divya Spandana husband in the future would be a talented and considerate person because she deserves it.

Her story about the late father Narayan is also an inspiring story about kind-hearted people in life though the two didn’t share any biological link with each other. With what she has achieved throughout the years, her father Narayan must be smiling in heaven now.
