It’s going to be a beach wedding in Goa this October for Telugu cinema’s favourite couple -- Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya. The two will get married on October 6.

The couple wanted a fun wedding and zeroed-in on Goa without much fuss. The couple has planned two weddings: First a traditional Hindu wedding followed by church nuptuals.

“It will be a weekend wedding with just a close bunch of friends and family — say a 100-odd people. There will be a traditional Telugu ceremony on Day 1. The following Sunday, there will be a Christian wedding at a heritage church in Goa, where Sam and Chai will exchange vows,” a source was quoted as saying by Times of India.

Chaitanya and Samantha, who have been in a relationship for a long time, officially got engaged on January 29 in Hyderabad. The two first met on the sets of Gautham Vasudev Menon’s Telugu romantic-drama Ye Maaya Chesave (2010), and went on to work together in films such as Autonagar Surya and Manam.

Post his engagement, Chaitanya was quoted as saying in agencies. “Wherever I go, I’m asked about my marriage. Honestly, there’s no pressure anymore because everybody knows. I believe this phase... where people constantly want to know about my marriage...it won’t last long. Nobody is going to ask me this question next year.”

Meanwhile, Chaitanya has also confirmed that Samantha intends to continue acting after marriage. When he did admit to being in a relationship in October 2016, he had said then that 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,” Chaitanya said.

Samantha, will be doing a pivotal role in upcoming Telugu horror-comedy Raju Gari Gadhi 2 which also stars her soon-to-be father-in-law and actor Akkineni Nagarjuna. The film is the sequel to 2015 Telugu sleeper hit Raju Garu Gadhi.
