In one of the videos that surfaced online, the romantic groom Andrei recited a few lines for his lady-love and that too in Hindi. Andrei said, “Koi pyaar kare toh tumse kare, tum jaise ho waise kare, koi tumko badal ke pyaar kare, toh woh pyaar nahi sauda kare, aur sahiba, pyaar mein sauda nahi hota”, and he also translated it in English. Shriya was so spellbound that she kissed Andrei. Check out the video here:
A few days back, when Shriya’s wedding rumours started doing the rounds, her mother refuted them all by saying, “No, it’s all rumours that keep resurfacing. She has to attend her friend’s wedding in Rajasthan and had ordered clothes and jewellery for it. In fact, she has to attend both, a relative’s and a friend’s wedding this month and in March. That’s probably why this has gone viral.” According to the reports, only close friends and family attended the function and even her Tollywood friends were not aware of her secret wedding.
For the uninitiated ones, Andrei was born in St Petersburg, Russia and is currently staying with his mother and brother. He is a national level tennis player and an entrepreneur who owns a restaurant chain in Moscow, Russia.
We wish Shriya Saran and Andrei Koscheev a very happy married life!
