Family, Caste & Husband
Megha Dhade was born into a middle-class Marathi Hindu-Bhogle family. Not much is known about her parents despite the fact that her father died when she was a teenager. She has two siblings, a sister and a brother. When her brother came to know about her pregnancy, he didn’t talk to her for around 7 years.
