The lead pair in the smash hit Kirik Party, Rakshit Shetty and Rashmika Mandanna, got engaged at a private ceremony on Monday July 3 at the Serenity Hall in Virajpet. The couple’s family and friends were at the venue to celebrate the occasion.

Rakshit and Rashmika met on the sets of Kirik Party and soon developed a relationship. Though the couple got engaged, the date of the wedding is yet to be finalised, say sources. It may be mentioned that Rashmika had told in an interview earlier that the makers of Kirik Party zeroed in on her after seeing her picture from the Clean & Clear Fresh Face of India 2014 competition. The competition has not only won her the role in one of the most successful films but a life partner as well.

Directed by Rakshit’s brother Rishab Shetty, the film was produced by GS Guptha and Rakshit Shetty under the banner Paramvah Studios on a budget of Rs. 4 crore. The film did very well at the box office grossing over Rs. 50 crores. In fact, it was not only a box office success but also went on to win numerous prestigious awards including the IIFA Utsavam Award, Filmfare Awards South and South Indian International Movie Awards.

On their engagement, Rashmika posted on a social networking site, “Let’s do this. So blessed to have Rakshit Shetty in my life and thanks to Madhu. In return, Rakshit replied, “So sweet of you Rashmika Mandanna. In fact, I am the lucky one to have you in my life.”

Kirik Party, a campus romantic comedy, stars Rakshit Shetty, Rashmika Mandanna, Samyuktha Hegde, Achyuth Kumar and Pramod Shetty. B Ajaneesh Loknath composed music for this film with Karam Chawla cranking the camera and Sachin editing it.
