National Award-winning actor Vikram's daughter Akshita got engaged to Manu Ranjith, son of entrepreneur Ranganathan of Cavin Kare.
The low-key engagement took place on Sunday (July 10) here in Chennai at a star hotel amid family and close friends of the couple.
"It was a very private ceremony. The couple had known each other for a long time and got engaged with the consent of their parents. The wedding is scheduled to take place next year," a source told IANS.
Also present at the event were film-maker S Shankar, who has worked with Vikram on two Tamil projects; Anniyan & I, actor-producer Udhayanidhi Stalin and many other famous personalities.
Manu Ranjith is the grandson of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, and hence the wedding is expected to be a grand affair.
Though it is confirmed that the marriage will take place next year, the date has not yet been revealed. Well-known celebrities from various film industries and famous politicians are expected to make their presence felt at the wedding.
Unlike other Tamil stars, Vikram has so far kept his family away from the paparazzi. He also has a son, who will be making his acting debut shortly, according to reports.
Meanwhile, Vikram, who is currently shooting for Iru Mugan, which is being helmed by Anand Shankar of Arima Nambi fame, will also be seen in Thiru's Garuda.
While Iru Mugan has Nayantara and Nithya Menon playing important roles, Garuda will see Kajal Aggarwal paired up opposite Vikram for the first time.
The actor, who recently celebrated his 50th birthday, received his seventh Filmfare Award for his work in Shankar's I at the 63rd Filmfare Awards South.
Vikram's characters in Iru Mugan too, are said to be hard to portray and might hand him more number of awards upon the release of the film.
