It was for the first time ever that an engagement ceremony was shown live in India. This occasion took place on Thursday night, i.e. on 1st December 2011. If this event was telecast in Indian television then it means there has to be something happening on it. Yes we are talking about the engagement that took place between Ram Charan Tej and Upasana Kamineni. Ram Charan is the son of an expert actor and politician Chiranjeevi while Upasana is the grand daughter of C Pratap Reddy who is the chairman of the Apollo Group pf Hospitals. So it was a big day not only for the couple but also for the two families that turned to relatives after this occasion.
While the duo exchanged their rings, the fans and followers could be the part of the function through their television screens. It is due to the multi-camera setup that has captured this grand event, the online editing and the final broadcast across various channels that many people could enjoy this moment and could be a part of it. This was possibly the biggest engagement that took place in South India. Many great personalities took part in this event just to bless the would be married couple. Some of the top guests present there include CM Nallari Kiran Kumar Redddy, Dy. CM Damodara Narasimha, Ex CM Nedurumilli Reddy, TDP President Chandra Babu Naidu, Speaker Nadendla Manohar, D. Srinivas, CPI Narayana, Dr. Jaya Prakash Narayana etc. Some other politically famous persons that took part in this event were Kanna Laxmi Narayana, Ponnala Laxmaiah, Anam Narayana Reddy, Daanam Nagender, K Keshav Rao, C.C Reddy and many others.
Among film stars Nagurjuna, Rana Naga Chaitanya, Dr. Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Tamanna, Jayaprada, Sharwanand, Satyanrayana, Ramesh Prasad, KC Sekhar Babu , Chalasani Ramesh, NTR, Mohan Kanda, Trisha,Balakrishna, Venkatesh were a part of this auspicious occasion. It was a private event and only selected people were sent bar coded invitation cards. However, as claimed by insiders, the actor did not want to keep away his fans from being a part of this event and it is due to this the engagement was telecast in Indian television. The function was organised by the family of the would-be-bride and Temple Tree farmhouse in the outskirts of Hyderabad was chosen as the venue for this occasion. The whole area was shinning with lightning and flowers that were brought from many countries to decorate the stage. The decoration was done by a Thailand based company.
Apart from all these, the sherwani worth Rs 1.5 lakh worn by the groom and the jewellery for the bride, worth Rs 10 crore imported from Brazil drew special attention. All this was done in way as has never been done earlier. The engagement ceremony started at about 7 pm with the couple dressed in their traditional dresses. This was their first step towards their marriage. The arrangements and theme were all looked over by Choice Entertainment from Delhi. The venue was decorated by decorators from Bankok. From every aspect it seemed to be a picture perfect event.
World renowned kathak dancers Vivha and Abhimanyu Lal with their disciples made this event more charming with their spectacular performance. We hope this brings good luck to the couple and they might be happy thereafter. As this event was organised in a grand way may the couple be blessed with happiness forever. We hope to see more of this in the wedding that is to be commenced soon. We expect the grand wedding to be in a much bigger way then this event. So till then we wish luck and good wishes to the couple.
