The two became close while shooting for Ghajinikanth. The two are also a part of KV Anand-Suriya’s Kaappan, wherein they spent a lot of time together. Sayyeshaa’s family have also been all smiles whenever Arya was around them.
Talking about the beginning of their love story, Arya’s friend and comedian Sathish had a lot to say during his recent interview with Behindwoods. Talking about how close the couple was during the shooting of Ghajinikanth, Sathish said, “Not knowing how serious Arya was about her (Sayyeshaa), we used to tease him thinking this is one of his usual, healthy flirtings. However, Thalaivar already sketch potutaru (he has already planned on his forever with her).”
On Valentine’s Day, the couple released a public statement that read, “With the blessings of our parents and family, we are delighted to share with you the beautiful day of our lives. We are getting married in March.”
