Love life and relationships
In 2016, Rumors began circulating the internet that the popular actress was in a relationship with Naveen Chandra, an actor whom she starred alongside in the “Lacchimdeviki O Lekkundi” film in the same year. It is quite normal for the Indian actresses not to comment on their relationship status, and thus neither Lavanya nor Naveen have addressed the rumors, although it’s believed that the two are together to this day.
Naveen Chandra was born in Bellary, India in 1989; he holds Indian nationality, and is an actor best known for starring in Telugu and Tamil movies. He is famous for starring in the “Andala Rakshasi” romantic comedy film in 2012 while he has appeared in numerous others over the years, including “Juliet Lover of Idiot” in 2017, “Devadas” in 2018, and “Miss India” in 2019.
