Kochi: Young actress Samskruthy Shenoy got engaged with her long time friend and entrepreneur Vishnu. S. Nair here last Sunday. In a Facebook post, Samskruthy announced the news of her engagement, which was held at Star Choyz Auditorium, Gold Souk Grande, Vyttila, Kochi on July 16.
“We haven’t yet decided about marriage plans as I am still pursuing my studies. I’ve always been grateful for the support and affection I’ve received from my friends here. Hopefully, the support and blessings would continue through the rest of my journey. Thanks again and a lot of love,” she wrote.
Samskruthy, who has acted in Tamil, Kannada and Telugu movies also, was last seen in the Malayalam film “Marubhoomiyile Aana.”
She had a fine performance in the film “Anarkali” as a medical student.
She is also a Bharatanatyam student. Commenting on her relationship with Vishnu, Samskruthy told an English daily that they met three-and-a- half years ago when she went to inaugurate one of Vishnu’s business ventures.
“We became good friends and eventually fell in love. There was no filmy style or fairy tale proposal. We knew that we were meant for each other, we had that understanding,” she was quoted as saying by the newspaper.
Samskruthy said that both their families were supportive of their decision.
“My dad is a very open-minded person. Both our parents knew it from the very beginning and their only concern was our happiness,” the 19-year-old actress added.
Samskruthy’s father, Dr. Govindaraj Shenoy, is hailing from Mangalore and the family is settled in Kochi.
