Nagarjuna’s son Akhil Akkineni gets engaged to Shriya Bhupal

South superstar Nagarjuna’s son Akhil Akkineni got engaged to his girlfriend Shriya Bhupal in a private ceremony on Friday night.  Akhil Akkineni  met Shriya Bhupal, granddaughter of Hyderabad’s renowned businessman GVK Reddy few years ago at an event and developed liking for one another.

Last year, the couple informed their relationship to their respective parents and got their nod to move ahead with their relationship. Since then the news of their engagement and marriage started doing the round.

The engagement ceremony took place at GVK House in Hyderabad on December 9.

The invitation card reads, "With the blessings of SMT Annapurna and Sri Akkineni Nageshwara Rao, we take immense pleasure in inviting you to the engagement ceremony of our son Akhil with Shriya, Daughter of Shalini and Somanadri Bhupal on Friday, 9th Demember, 7:00 PM at GVK House - Amala and Nagarjuna Akkineni”.

Akhil Akkineni and Shriya Bhupal’s engagement was a private ceremony in the attendance of close family members and friends. The couple will apparently tie the knot in Rome, Italy in February 2017 and it will be followed by a grand reception party in India later.

However, Shriya Bhupal is a fashion designer by profession. She is the official costume designer for Filmfare South and she has worked with popular actresses Shraddha Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Shriya Saran, Kajal Agarwal and Rakul Preet.

On other hand, Akhil Akkineni, who entered film industry as a child artiste with 1995 film ‘Sisindri’ made his debut as a hero with ‘Akhil: The Power Of Jua’, which badly doomed at the box office. He is teaming up with director Vikram Kumar for his next venture.

Akhil Akkineni tweeted on 7 December: "My genius director Vikram is coming up with some really new age stuff! Very exciting times and I'm so happy the wait has been worth it Pre production going on full swing, will update with all details very soon. Finally everything has surfaced and almost set to go. For the last one year patience has been my best friend. Time can move along very slowly but it picks up eventually and at the right time."

Here’s wishing all the best to Akhil and Shriya!
