Finally, the wedding season in Akkineni house has begun with the youngest scion Akhil, getting engaged to his girlfriend Shirya Bhupal. The official invite says that the couple’s engagement is scheduled to take place on December 9 at GVK House in Hyderabad.
Hyderabad-based fashion designer Shriya Bhupal is the granddaughter of business tycoon GVK Reddy and she is also the official costume designer for Filmfare South. Shriya has already worked in Tollywood with Shriya Saran, Kajal Agarwal and Rakul Preet as well as Bollywood beauties such as Shraddha Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.
Nagajuna’s younger son Akhil has been in a relationship with Shirya for quite some time now. They both were spotted in many T-Town parties too. Meanwhile, the buzz is that the couple will have a destination wedding, mostly likely in Italy. The reports also suggest that the marriage will be a grand function with nearly 600-odd guests flying to Italy from all around the world.
While Akhil has dates planned and things are going as scheduled, his sibling Naga Chaitnaya’s wedding with Samantha has been delayed for some time. Speaking at a press conference a month back, Nagrajuna had told that his son Chaitanya’s wedding has been postponed to next year as the family is waiting for an “auspicious date” for the nuptials.
Meanwhile, Akhil faces a tight schedule as he will next be seen working with filmmaker Vikram Kumar, who had earlier directed Nagarjuna and Akhil in Manam. The actor and Arjun Kapoor are also reportedly being considered for Telugu and Hindi remake of Dulquer Salmaan-starrer Kammati Paadam.
