Well, the cat is out of the bag at last! For the first time, actors Naresh and Pavitra Lokesh have finally admitted to being in a relationship - a news that the world unofficially knew for a while now. That’s not all, they are all set to take a step further and tie the knot soon. The news was confirmed by the 62-year-old actor himself on social media earlier today. Naresh, Pavitra Lokesh worked together in films like Sammohanam, Ramarao on Duty, Andaru Bagundali Andulo Nenundali, to name a few.

In a special video that Naresh uploaded, the couple cuts a cake and kisses each other later. “New Year, New Beginnings, Need all your blessings. From us to all of you #HappyNewYear,” Naresh wrote. The two have been in a live-in relationship for several months now and confirmed their relationship with this video. Naresh had divorced his wife Ramya Raghupathi recently with Pavitra Lokesh too parting ways with her earlier partner a while ago.


While Naresh was married thrice, Pavitra Lokesh had earlier married a software engineer and divorced him to move in with actor Suchendra Prasad, with whom she eventually separated in 2018. Naresh, the son of late actress Vijaya Nirmala and half-brother to Mahesh Babu, has had a prolific career in cinema as a lead, comedian, character actor and in negative roles too. Pavitra, who also worked in television, has been active in Kannada and Telugu industries for a little more than two decades now.

Naresh and Pavitra Lokesh-starrer Andaru Bagundali Andulo Nenundali, the most recent film they were cast together, is now streaming on aha. Their other films together include Middle Class Abbayi, Happy Wedding, Telisinavallu.
