- There will be two wedding ceremonies and both will be in Goa
- Samantha and Naga Chaitanya's wedding reportedly costs Rs 10 crore
- Samantha will wear a love story lehenga designed by Kresha Bajaj
"I do" and "I do, again": The wedding celebrations which start today are expected to go on till at least October 8, when Samantha and Naga Chaitanya will exchange the wedding vows as per Christian rituals. Both the wedding ceremonies, planned in Goa, will be attended by close friends and family. There will be a reception for the newly-weds in Hyderabad but the date hasn't been decided yet because of Samantha and Naga Chaitanya's work commitments.
Just a simple wedding worth 10 crore: Naga Chaitanya's father Nagarjuna Akkineni recently told Deccan Chronicle that the guest list has some 100 names on it. "With Rama Naidu garu's (Naga Chaitanya's maternal grandfather) and our family, it's hardly 100 members. It's not a lavish wedding, it is the most simple one." A Times Of India report added that the 'simple wedding' may cost Rs 10 crore.
The love story lehenga: Samantha Ruth Prabhu will wear a lehenga designed by Kresha Bajaj for her wedding, which will have top moments of Samantha and Naga Chaitanya's love story embroidered on it. Kresha Bajaj, who owns fashion label Koecsh, designed the first love story lehenga for her own wedding and now the second will be for Samantha. Here's a sample of Kresha Bajaj's fabulous work:
Films and more: Samantha Ruth Prabhu's first film to release after her wedding will also feature with her father-in-law-to-be Nagarjuna. In Raju Gari Gadhi 2, she plays the role of a ghost. Nagarjuna told IANS that he did not recommend Samantha for the role: "In fact, I didn't want to see her play a ghost right before marriage." Well, it happening anyway and the film's releasing on October 13.
Naga Chaitanya is the son of Nagarjuna Akkineni and his first wife Lakshmi Daggubati (daughter of Rama Naidu). Akhil Akkineni (born to Nagarjuna and his second wife Amala) is Naga Chaitanya's half-sibling. Unlike Naga Chaitanya, Samantha doesn't have film stars in her family tree.
Congratulations, Naga Chaitanya and Samantha.
