Their engagement ceremony was attended by only friends and family members. Several celebrities, including those from the Telugu film indsutry, attended the event, from which the media was kept out.
Among those who attended the event was actress Samantha, who was full of happiness. She posted on Twitter, a picture of her along with Nag Chaitanya, Nagarjuna and the couple at the engagement ceremony. Wishing the couple all happiness, the actress tweeted, “Congratulations to the most lovely couple . May you have the most beautiful life together @AkhilAkkineni8 #shriya.”
According to reports, Akhil Akkineni, who met Shriya Bhupal at an event a few years ago, began dating her. Last year, their parents gave the two their consent for the wedding.
The wedding, it is said, will take place in Rome, Italy in February 2017. Sources say a reception will be hosted later.
