Actor Naga Chaitanya, son of Telugu superstar Akkineni Nagarjuna, has confirmed that he will tie the knot next year.
"It (marriage) should happen next year. My father will announce the date once it's finalised. At the moment, I can't divulge more information," Chaitanya told IANS.
Rumoured to be in a relationship with actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu, he refused to comment when asked about it.
"Chaitanya and actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu have been seeing each other for a while. Nagarjuna sir has allowed them to decide for themselves when they want to get married. He's expected to make an official announcement soon," a source told IANS.
Chaitanya is currently busy wrapping up Telugu action-thriller Saahasam Swasaga Sagipo, and also awaits the release of Premam, the remake of the Malayalam blockbuster of the same name that starred Nivin Pauly.
He has also signed a yet-untitled project with director Kalyan Krishna, and it is slated to go on the floors later this year.
Meanwhile, Akhil Akkineni, Chaitanya's brother is said to be getting engaged to designer Shriya Bhupa on 9 December this year, according to a reliable source.
"The families have decided to get them engaged on 9 December. The marriage, however, will take place next year and they haven't yet finalised the dates," the source told IANS.
Akhil and Shriya have known each other for many years.
