SS Karthikeya, son of legendary Tollywood filmmaker SS Rajamouli has announced his news of engagement via Twitter. The young man revealed that he is soon getting married to his girlfriend Pooja, who is actually Tollywood star Jagapathi Babu's niece. It has been learned that the duo has been in love for the past couple of years.
"Yesss!! Very excited to dive into this new phase of my life with the love of my life! Pooja. Thank you for the all the love that you have been pouring. Can't thank you all enough! Love always," tweeted Karthikeya.
The engagement apparently took place in Rajamouli's residence, and some photos of the ceremony have already gone viral on social media platforms. An official announcement regarding the marriage date is expected to be made soon either by the family of SS Rajamouli or Jagapathi Babu.
Pooja is the daughter of Ram Prasad, Jagapathi Babu's brother, and the granddaughter of veteran producer VB Rajendra Prasad. She is now a known figure in the world of music and has sung lots of devotional tracks for various albums.
On the other hand, SS Rajamouli is actually the stepfather of Karthikeya. While marrying his wife Rama, Rajamouli accepted Karthikeya, the baby Rama had from her previous marriage.
Rama is the sister of music director Keeravani's wife Valli, and Rajamouli knows about Rama and her family years before his marriage. While making 'Student No 1', Rajamouli and Rama fell in love and both of them got married soon.
SS Karthikeya is also following his father's footsteps, and he is working with Rajamouli in his movies as the second unit director and associate director. He also worked as a line producer in the movie 'Yuddham Sharanam' which was released in 2017.
