Has break-up season amongst popular couples started all over again? Last year was flooded with news of separations and all wondered what went wrong in tinsel town. Looks like that trend has not just stopped and it has been carried on to this year as well. When reports flashed that Nagarjuna’s son Akhil Akkineni and Shriya Bhupal have called off their wedding, one couldn’t believe it for a minute. For those of you who don’t know, Akhil and Shriya were supposed to get hitched in May 2017 and it was going to be a grand destination wedding. The duo who were dating since quite a long time got engaged in a lavish ceremony in Hyderabad in December 2016. Just months away from the big day, and the marriage has been called off.

Akhil Akkineni is the younger son of veteran actor Nagarjuna and Shriya Bhupal is the granddaughter of industrialist GVK Reddy. As per report by a leading daily, some predicted that such could happen but friends close to the couple are shocked to know about this. They told TOI, “They walked in together and looked very much in love. God knows what could have gone so wrong in a few weeks, but it’s sad.” It is also reported that Akhil and Shriya had some argument recently at the Hyderabad airport and ever since then things have turned sour between them. A source close to the Akkineni family told the daily, “Initially, we all thought it’s just the usual lovers’ tiff… but things haven’t been the same between them ever since, that’s for sure.” Also Read - Brahmastra Shooting to Resume in October With Alia Bhatt And Ranbir Kapoor in Double Shift
There were many who had already booked their tickets for the royal destination wedding which was supposed to happen in Rome, Italy in May. The Akkineni family have asked the guests to cancel their tickets. Sources close to the superstar’s family told The New Indian Express, “Messages went out last Saturday to guests to cancel their programme. No reason was given. Those who were about to book tickets were advised not to go ahead. Even the tickets booked by both families have been cancelled.” However, neither the couple nor their family members have spoken about this yet.

Some speculate that it’s due to the age gap between Akhil Akkineni and Shriya Bhupal that has caused trouble in their paradise. Ugly tiffs were noticed between the two soon after they got engaged. While some say that Akhil could not give his fiancee the kind of attention and time she wanted. TOI quoted a source saying, “He was anyway too young to be hitched. As the date was nearing he got scared about the whole thing. And this put pressure on the relationship.” And like that another love story comes to an end.
