Nithiin had said, "We met through common friends and clicked instantly. I did not try to woo her. In fact, neither of us tried too hard. Our relationship evolved so naturally that we knew we loved each other and we didn't really have to say it out aloud to prove a point. We just knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. It's a mature relationship built on understanding and trust."
Nithiin Reddy wanted to propose Shalini Kandukuri in a hatke style and so he had unleashed his romantic side to do the same. Speaking on the similar lines, Nithiin had remarked, "So, I didn't want to do the usual drill of going down on one knee and popping the question or shower her with roses. Instead, I decided to stand on one leg and propose to her. I just wanted to do something different, funny and memorable. I guess it really paid off. Not only did it make her laugh, she immediately said, 'yes'." (Also Read: Anam Mirza Calls Her Husband, Mohammad Asaduddin Her Mirror, Shares A Behind-The-Scenes Picture)
