Infosys Murthy's son Rohan to wed TVS Venu's daughter

Although the wedding date is not known as yet, celebrations have reportedly begun in both families in anticipation of the event.

“Yes, Rohan had proposed to Lakshmi on Thursday in Chennai and the latter had consented. They have known each other for over six months and have been in touch regularly since then,” Murthy said.

Date and venue

He said it was up to the two to decide when to marry.  “Rohan is quite independent. Though we are his parents, we have left the date of wedding and location to him and Lakshmi to decide and tell us,” Murthy said.

Twenty-seven year-old Rohan is a doctoral student in Computer Science at Harvard University in the US, with a Microsoft research fellowship and owns around two per cent of Infosys’ shares as promoter’s son.

Lakshmi, who is also 27, has a doctorate in engineering management from Warwick University in Britain and is a board member of the Chennai-based TVS group firm Sundaram Clayton as strategy chief.

Lakshmi’s mother Mallika is the daughter of the Amalgamations Group Chairman A Sivasailam.

Murthy’s daughter Akshata got married to her Stanford classmate Rishi Sunak Aug 30, 2009 in Bangalore. She holds around 1.4 per cent equity stake in the IT bellwether.

The family sources indicated that the wedding might take place in Chennai and reception in Bangalore. The event could be this year in all probability, the sources said.
