Akul Balaji and Chandan Shetty live in the Chandan barracks in Goa

Former Bigg Boss contestants Akul Balaji at Chandan Shetty are close friends in real life. So when Chandan fled to Goa recently for his bachelor party , Akul was the sole celebrity in the big band of boys that partied in Sussegad land. “The gang included Chandan’s childhood friends at the group stayed at a large village in Vagator. Lazy breakfasts, swims in the sea, cooking and talking late into the night were the order of the day, ”says Akul. While the buzz is that the wedding of Chandan at fiance Nivedita Gowda is slated to take place early in 2020, Chandan chose to have an early bachelor's party as his schedule will be rather hectic during that time and he wanted this time off for himself. “Chandan was keen on some relationship advice and we friends gave him plenty of that,” shares Akul.
