Tollywood actor Nagarjuna's son Akhil Akkineni's and industrialist GVK Reddy’s daughter Shriya Bhupal were supposed to tie the knot in Italy in May. However, the wedding has been called off, fresh reports suggest.
Reportedly, more than 700 guests have been requested to cancel/not book their tickets to the wedding.
A source revealed that the cancellation update was given to the guest last Saturday but no reason was specified.
“Those who were about to book tickets were advised not to go ahead. Even the tickets booked by both families have been cancelled. It was a last minute decision. All was well until last week”, the source said.
Akhil and Shriya had been dating each other for over two years, and had the consent of their families to take their relationship to the next level.
They got engaged at a lavish ceremony in Hyderabad in December 2016, and their engagement was all over the news. Both their families had then decided to host a destination wedding ceremony in Rome in Italy in May.
Soon after their engagement, both families reportedly went busy with preparations for their wedding. They sent out invitations to their relatives and close friends in business, politics and film industry.
On a related note Akhil will next be seen in director Vikram Kumar’s untitled next. The director had earlier helmed ‘Manam,’ which starred his father Nagarjuna and brother Naga Chaitanya.
