Bollywood Garam: Seems like the wedding bells don’t seem to be stopping for South India’s stars. After Allu Arjun and Kathi, actor Jr. NTR will be tying the knot with Lakshmi Pranathi on 5th May 2011. Since Jr. NTR’s family come from a political background, the wedding is expected to be a grand one and attended by 10,000 guests.
Reports have said that the actor has invited 5,000 fans for his wedding. A lavish 18 crore ‘mandap’ (wedding place) has been set up for the wedding rituals, which would be solemnized in HITEX in Hyderabad in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
The overall cost of the wedding is estimated to be around 22 crores. Apart from the wedding, there is also a curiosity among the fans about the recent photographs of the to-be bride Lakshmi, as the engagement photographs have not been released.
Jr. NTR’s father, Nandamuri Hari Krishna has personally designed the wedding invitation cards. The invitation resembles a book and begins with the photograph of his grand parents and then some text about the details of the wedding in Telugu language. The to-be bride also comes from a political family and reports have said that NTR Jr and Lakshmi are both related to the former chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Chandra Babu Naidu.
The way the wedding has been planned, looks like it’s going to become India’s very own Royal wedding.
