One of Tollywood's most eligible bachelors, Nithin admits to "being under severe pressure" to get hitched. Admittedly, the actor has been flooded with wedding proposals and his mother is keen on getting him married, as soon as possible and is on the look out for a suitable bride.
"If she had her way I would have been married a long time ago. Whenever my mom attends a wedding, she invariably reminds me about my marriage. That's the only thing on her mind now. That's not all. Whenever there is a wedding scene in a movie she immediately pauses the scene and asks me "When will you get married?" I'm lost for words most times and just keep mum."
Nithin confesses that the rest of his family and close relatives also side with his mother whenever the subject of his marriage comes up. "Whenever there is a family get together my wedding is the hottest topic of discussion always. It's awkward, but I just keep saying, 'very soon'."
But the actor isn't sure of holding on to his bachelor status for too long. "I have no plans of marriage as of now, but it might happen anytime soon," says Nithin. Will it be a love marriage or an arranged match? "If I find a girl then I'll go for a love marriage. But if I don't find one, then it'll be an arranged marriage," adds the actor.
Considering his busy schedule falling in love seems unlikely. "My focus is totally on films and I have no time for a love life. For love to happen I must first meet someone and spend time with her. Where is the time for all that?" explains Nithin.
There seems to be no dearth of women proposing marriage to him though. "Well, a few girls have proposed to me at a couple of private functions, but I'm a very shy person and I don't know how to react to such situations. It was surprising, but at the same time overwhelming and I'm extremely grateful for all their love," says the actor.
Well, given the actor's growing female fan base, such requests were sure to pour in. Perhaps they might have a better shot at it if they impress his mum.
