The Mega Wedding in Hyderabad
The alliance brings together two of the most illustrious families in Andhra Pradesh, Telugu super-star Chiranjeevi’s son, actor Ram Charan Tej weds Apollo Hospital heiress Upasna Kamineni on June 14th. Over 10,000 guests, including bollywood stars, political bigwigs and business tycoons are expected at the spectacular evening reception at HICC and quite obviously this is a celebration Hyderabad is waiting for. According to sources, ace Art director Anand Sai, a close associate of Chiranjeevi is designing the sets for most of the functions. Dinaz Noria, Hyderabad’s most well-known wedding decor specialist is orchestrating the decor for the different functions- an elegant dinner at the the newly-opened Park Hyatt, a ‘Night at the Movies’ theme Sangeet at Annapoorna Studios, the Traditional Indian with Balinese elements decor for the morning wedding & lunch, and the glamorous evening reception@ HICC.
Ram Charan Tej got engaged to Upasna Kamineni at her sprawling farmhouse in Moinabad, on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Over 2,000 guests were sent bar-coded invites, and the security was tight in view of the extraordinary amount of fanfare and curiosity among the public. But the families arranged for a ‘live webcast’ of the engagement, since they didn’t want to disappoint Chiranjeevi’s fans.
