That extravagant wedding invitation with a video playing on an LCD screen fixed in it was only a hint. Mining baron Janardhan Reddy has got bigger plans to make his daughter's D-day an enviable event, it seems.
The details of the event and possible attendees make it clear that the event is going to be a starry affair.
A number of celebrities, including Bollywood stars Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhavan, have promised to perform at the wedding, if reports are to be believed.
Brahmani, the daughter of Gali Janardhan Reddy, will enter into wedlock with Rajeev Reddy, son of Hyderabad-based industrialist Vikram Devarareddy, on November 16.
From Tollywood, celebrities like Rakul Preet Singh, Priya Mani, comedians Brahmanandam and Ali are among the star performers at the event. A final meeting with veteran filmmaker Sai Prakash would finalize the list of celebrities who would perform, reports said.
The mining baron who regards himself to be an incarnation of king Krishnadevaraya is recreating his childhood home called 'Hale Mane' which will be the venue for 'Kanyaadan'.
Embellished horses, elephants, camels and chariots will create a royal ambiance for the wedding.
A replica of Vittala Temple is being built at the venue, covering almost 38 acres of land. As much as 100 laborers have been put at work round the clock to prepare this monumental structure.
Details of the jumbo wedding would amuse any layman:
Total expense including food: Rs 500 crore
Estimated number of guests: 30,000
1,500 rooms booked across top star hotels
15 helepads arranged at palace grounds
Rumor has it that Shah Rukh Khan and Prabhudeva would turn up for the event.
Reddy, who was arrested by CBI on charge of illegal mining is detained from visiting Ballari and Kadapa regions during the bail. But he managed to get a relaxation from Supreme Court in view of his daughter's marriage.
