The wedding, that took place on Monday at 9.13 pm in Bengaluru was attended by around 250 guests, comprising family and friends. “Everything went smoothly and calmly,” says a source from the family.
“The groom’s family is very close to Surekha (Chiranjeevi’s wife), so they were never strangers. They mingled with everyone from Chiru’s family,” added the source.
The megastar also put up a small dance performance with his daughter at the reception. The two gave the traditional father-daughter dance a new twist as they grooved to one of Chiranjeevi's romantic tracks.
Chiranjeevi and Surekha are now relieved as this was the last big function for them, and Chiru had been worrying about Srija for a few years. “Now, I am more relieved and can concentrate on my film,” Chiru apparently told all of his friends.
Hyderabad-based decor specialist Dinaz Noria took care of the decorations of the Kalyanamandapam and made sure it looked perfect. The food served was traditional and the ceremony continued till 12.30 am.
Apart from family, only close Tollywood associates like K. Raghavendra Rao, Gemini Kiran, K.S. Rama Rao and Ashwini Dutt were invited. Rana Daggubati and Akhil were also there from the day of the sangeet ceremony.
From the Kannada film industry, Sumalatha and Ambarish, and Puneet Raj Kumar attended as they are very close to Chiranjeevi and his family.
