Four-day star nite for wedding of Janardhana Reddy's daughter
Renowned Kannada, Hindi and Telugu film stars will take part in the four-day ‘star nite’ organised as part of the marriage celebrations of Brahmini, the daughter of former minister Janardhana Reddy.

The grand wedding is scheduled for November 16 at the Palace Grounds in Bengaluru. The gala event will be aired live only by Janasri TV channel and no other media house has been permitted for reporting/live telecast of the programme.

A media centre will be set up near the marriage venue from where photographs/footage could be obtained. Lok Sabha member B Sriramulu will be in charge of all these arrangements. The star night, to be held from November 12 to 15, is meant only for the family members and VIP guests.

Big fat wedding

Reddy, who had invited reporters to his residence on Friday, gave details of the big fat wedding, during a chat over breakfast.

He offered to take scribes to Bengaluru by an air-conditioned bus and reserve rooms for them in a star hotel if they wished to attend the wedding. Parrying a question on the money being spent on the wedding, Reddy said that he would furnish information on his income and the marriage expenditure to the departments concerned, within one month of the event.

“Journalists can also obtain information under the Right to Information Act and make an interesting report,” Reddy quipped. Replying to a query, Sriramulu, who was also present on the occasion, said that around 50,000 guests were expected for the wedding.

Reddy was arrested by the CBI in 2011 on charges of large-scale illegal mining and the Supreme Court granted him bail in January 2015, on the condition that he shall not visit Ballari. However, following a plea by Reddy, the SC allowed him to visit Ballari for 21 days from November 1 in connection with the rituals relating to his
daughter’s wedding.
