When his wife, Shalini Kandukuri, turned a year older recently, the actor had to find a way to celebrate her birthday while socially distancing. It seems like Shalini tested positive for Covid-19 and Nithiin had to come up with an ingenious plan to make her feel special on the day. With the help of director Venky Kudumula and few other friends, he decided to cut a cake and celebrate her birthday.
But here’s the twist – Shalini could see the festivities from up in her room while Nithiin and co gathered below to celebrate the occasion. Sharing an adorable video of him surprising her, he wrote, “COVID has barriers…But LOVE has no BARRIERS..HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LOVE. LIFE lo 1st time nuvvu negative kavalani korukuntunnanu. (sic)” Not just Shalini, even fans were taken in by how romantic the whole thing seemed.

After dating for a while, Nithiin and Shalini got engaged in 2020 and tied the knot the same year in Hyderabad. While an opulent wedding was initially planned in Dubai with limited guests, the couple had to get married in an intimate ceremony in Hyderabad due to the pandemic.
