The just-1-film-old Akhil is said to be head over heels in love with Shriya Bhupal, a fashion designer based in Hyderabad. She is the daughter of city-based entrepreneur Shalini Bhupal.
A source close to Akhil revealed that Akhil and Shriya have been dating for a long time now. The duo has already informed their families about their serious romance, but the talk about engagement is a call to be taken by the family heads, added the source.
Sources from the Akkineni camp opine that the engagement ceremonies of both Naga Chaitanya (with top actress Samantha) and Akhil might soon be held. It will be a double celebratory moment for the fans then.
