With back to back hits like Shiva and Prema Yuddham, Amala was at the peak of her career when she decided to marry Nagarjuna. After sharing the screen in five films, she and Nag became thick friends and developed an inseparable bond. During one of their trips to the United States, the Akkineni scion proposed to his sweetheart and eventually, they tied the knot on June 1992. After a couple of years into marriage, the duo was blessed with a son, Akhil Akkineni, in 1994.
Sharing her cute little love story, the veteran actress said “Well like movies, love and marriage also happened. Nag surprised me out of the blue and asked me to marry him. When Nag proposed to me, I felt like I was going into a long holiday and it lasted for over 20 years. It’s just been a beautiful journey.”
