Nithiin and Shalini had a traditional family-only ceremony - "pasupu function" - earlier in February to mark the beginning of their wedding festivities. Nithiin had shared these photos with the hashtag "#NithiinShalini."
Nithiin and Shalini's wedding was scheduled for April 16. When the nationwide lockdown began, the actor announced in a statement that the wedding has been postponed in light of the current situation over the coronavirus pandemic. The couple are now reportedly looking forward to a wedding on July 26 with a limited guest-list, which will supposedly be attended by Telugu actors such as Pawan Kalyan, Varun Tej, Trivikram and a few others.
Nithiin is best-known for his performances in films such as Chal Mohan Ranga, A Aa, Heart Attack, Ishq, Hero, Dil, Drona, Agyaat and Victory among many others. 2018 film Srinivasa Kalyanam and Bheeshma are some of the actor's last movies.
