It’s going to be the most awaited wedding in Tollywood history. All eyes are on the wedding of Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu who are set to enter wedlock this weekend. Apparently, Chai and Sam (as Chaitanya and Samantha are called by friends and family) have booked October 6-9 weekend for a never-seen-before destination wedding in Goa.
According to trusted sources, it’s going to be a very lavish wedding ceremony and the total cost is expected to be around Rs 10 crore. A chartered flight has been arranged to fly special guests from Hyderabad to Goa, and the list includes the likes of Balakrishna, Mahesh Babu, Prabhas, Chiranjeevi, Allu Arjun and Ram Charan among others. The couple will tie the knot on October 6 as per Hindu rituals. They will marry again as per the Christian tradition, exchanging vows. Later, they will throw a grand reception in Hyderabad, for those who weren’t part of their Goa wedding guest list.
It’s yet unknown where will couple head for their honeymoon, amidst rumours that they might go to the Bahamas. However, they won’t be a taking a long break as Chaitanya has to commence work on his new Telugu film Savyasachi, to be directed by Chandoo Mondeti, from October third week. Samantha, on the other hand, awaits the release of Vijay’s Mersal, which is due to hit the screens this Diwali. She also has Telugu horror-comedy Raju Gari Gadhi 2 in her kitty.
Designer Kresha Bajaj has been roped in to make the trousseau for the bride, comprising three outfits. While Sam will wear a fairy-tale gown for the Christian ceremony on October 8, she will appear in a special south Indian sari that was owned by Chaitanya’s grandmother D Rajeswari, wife of popular producer D Ramanaidu. Kresha will add her own touches to the sari, as it’s very special for Sam on this big occasion. She will also wear arms band, waist bands and various necklaces, mostly in diamonds and Kundan.

Naga Chaitanya and Samantha got engaged in January this year after nearly four years of courtship. They first met on the sets of Gautham Vasudev Menon’s Telugu romantic-drama Ye Maaya Chesave (2010). However, they began dating much later. Together, they have worked in three films, the two other being Autonagar Surya (2014) and Manam (2014).
Samantha has been posting pictures of the preparations (wedding gown and jewellery) for the big day; stuff she will wear during the various ceremonies. She recently celebrated her bachelorette with her close friends. Also present was her fiance Chaitanya. It was a sweet celebration as she was seen dressed in red, complete with a tiara.
