Junior NTR's bride a minor, says lawyer

Shanti Prasad, a lawyer, on Friday approached Machilipatnam Legal Services Authority claiming that Narne Lakshmi Pranati was a minor and thus her marriage would be illegal.
The authority issued notices to Junior NTR, Naidu and the girl’s father Narne Srinivas Rao, who owns Telugu news channel Studio N. The hearing, meanwhile, was adjourned to February 24.

Pranati is the daughter of Naidu’s niece Narne Mallika. Sources close to the family of the bride-to-be, however, clarified that she would turn 18 on March 26 and marriage would take place only after that.

The minimum legal age for a girl to marry in India is 18 years.
The sources also clarified that the clippings of Pranati being shown on television channels were recorded a couple of years ago.
