If you haven’t yet seen the wedding invitation card of the daughter of Gali Janardhan Reddy, the mining baron who was jailed for 40 months for illegal mining and former BJP state minister, you are missing out on one hell of a spectacle, because it’s possibly one of the tech-savvy, fanciest and most expensive cards to have been made for a wedding here.
Believe it or not, the card opens to an LCD screen and loud wedding music begins flashing “Bramhani Weds Rajeev Reddy”. What follows is a 2-minute performance by the family, wherein Reddy sings songs (or lip-syncs) with his wife and son in and around a huge mansion, worshipping gods and goddesses, and showering flowers in gorgeously set-up surroundings. It totally seems like a scene from an Alok Nath film! And there’s no way you can miss the girl and the boy looking at each other like they’re meeting for the first time and haven’t asked permission from their parents.
The video ends at the whole family inviting the guests to the wedding, announcing the date and the venue of the marriage that’s due in November.
In case you didn’t know, the opulent engagement last month had already set the tone for the grand card. In fact, the wedding is expected to be a star-studded event with Bollywood biggies in attendance. And honestly, after the card, we’re sure the celebration is going to be one of the year’s most magnificent events!
In case you didn’t notice, the details of the ceremonies are also printed on the card! (Just so you don’t need to replay the video each time.)
