"Nag has been busy getting things ready for the engagement. An official announcement about engagement will be made soon," a source told Deccan Chronicle. "Akhil's engagement was a huge affair and Chay's engagement will be no different. In fact, just like Akhil, Chay too could have a destination wedding," the source added. Akhil and Shriya are reportedly planning a destination wedding in Italy and have apparently been scouting locations in the picturesque European country with a swanky option in Rome to be most likely the one.
In an earlier interview to news agency IANS, Naga Chaitanya opened up his relationship with Samantha and her career options after marriage. "I'm a very private person and I never felt the need to speak about my relationship in public. My friends have known about it for a long time. Then, when we informed our families, they supported our decision. We plan to get married next year," he told IANS.
Samantha, he said, will continue working after marriage. Naga Chaitanya said he won't stop Samantha from acting after marriage. "I don't think I'd ever tell her what she should and shouldn't do. I'm proud of her growth as an actress and I will encourage her to continue working. It was through sheer talent and hard work she got where she is today. I don't think she should throw away her successful career because of marriage," he said.
Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu first featured together in 2010 film Ye Maaya Chesave. In 2014, three of their film released back-to-back - Autonagar Surya, Manam and Thrayam.
