Dil Raju’s first wife Anitha Garu was a prominent member of his business venture Sri Venkateswara Creations. Anitha died due to cardiac arrest in 2017 when Dil Raju was away on a business trip abroad. His wife’s death had left Dil Raju shell-shocked. “I suddenly got a call from my son in law when I was in America. He delivered me the news and I was just stunned and in silence for the next ten minutes. I could not understand anything around me… All the memories of good and bad times I spent with my wife flashed in front of my eyes,” he told a media house in an interview. His daughter Hanshitha is married to Archit Reddy.
