Akhil Akkineni, younger son of Telugu megastar Nagarjuna, will get engaged to city-based designer Shriya Bhupal here on December 9, according to a reliable source.
“The families have decided to get them engaged on December 9. The marriage, however, will take place next year and they haven’t yet finalized the dates,” the source told IANS.
Akhil and Shriya have known each other for many years and they are tying the knot with the consent of their families. Meanwhile, the source added that there’s no clarity about the marriage of Naga Chaitanya, the elder son of Nagarjuna.
“Chaitanya and actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu have been seeing each other for a while. Nagarjuna sir has allowed them to decide for themselves when they want to get married. He’s expected to make an official announcement soon,” he said.
Actor Akhil Akkineni and Arjun Kapoor are also reportedly being considered for the Telugu and Hindi remake of Dulquer Salmaan-starrer latest Malayalam action drama Kammati Paadam.
“Dulquer’s ‘Kammati Paadam’ has opened to positive reports everywhere. Having been received very well by critics and audiences alike, there are now plans to remake the film in Telugu and Hindi. Akhil and Arjun are the top contenders for the lead role,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.
While nothing has been finalized yet, talks have been initiated. “Even the film hasn’t been shown to them yet. However, they’re being considered as the story suits their image more convincingly. It might take a couple of months before things get firmed up,” the source added.
