Geeta Bhagath is an Indian television anchor who hosts entertainment chat shows in the Telugu language. After appearing in a few South Indian TV shows, Geetha made her Tollywood debut with Jananam in the year 2014. Her co-stars were Bhuvan and Nithin Videm. SL Maniganji directed Geetha’s first Telugu feature Jananam. However, due to lack of publicity, Jananam had a harrowing experience at the Box-Office. Next year, she starred in another movie “Kalaya Nijama” which had actors Raj, Bhanu Prasad, and Sreekanth in it.
A newcomer Mahesh made Kalaya Nijama with the intention of redefining the horror genre in Andhra Pradesh. But, Geetha could not taste success once again as the movie received negative reviews with the audience criticizing Kalaya Nijama’s lousy script. After failing to get offers for movies, Geetha returned to the small-screen with hosting some contests and gossip shows. In addition to her television work, she has been filling the role of a presenter at various events and functions as well.
Currently, Bhagath is an anchor of an interview program where she chats with the guests from the entertainment industry. In fact, she has interviewed high-profile celebrities such as
Ram Gopal Varma
, and others. Geetha featured in the promotional video of IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad for the 2017 Vivo IPL season. Geetha is quite active on social media and makes sure that her followers do not miss out any action.
Geetha has remained in the news for wrong reasons on a regular basis. Apparently, there were rumors of an extra-marital affair between Geetha and the director Madhukar. Tensions escalated when Madhukar’s wife went to the local human rights body. Apparently, she complained about her husband who allegedly harassed her mentally. She also made claims that Geetha and Madhukar were in a live-in relationship. When his spouse got aware of this relationship and approached Madhukar, the director kicked his wife out of their home.
Madhukar’s better half also held Geetha responsible for this mess. Days later, Madhukar’s wife threatened to commit suicide if he did not end his illicit affair. In another controversy, Geetha filed a police complaint against the members of a particular family for insulting the anchor. Reportedly, a thirteen-year-old boy also featured in the list. Sananth Nagar police authorities told the media that there were quarrels between Geetha and the family who lived in the same Moti Nagar apartment. However, activists belonging to child rights group did not take this issue lightly and protested against the actress for filing the case against a minor.
