|In a star studded function held at Temple Tree resort in Moinabad, Chiranjeevi's 27-year-old son Ramcharan Teja, who is all set to make his Bollywood debut with the remake of Zanjeer, tied the knot with his childhood sweetheart Upasana Kamineni, granddaughter of Pratap C Reddy, the chairman of a leading hospital and lifecare chain, on Thursday.
A few hours after the wedding, Ramcharan told TOI, "It's been one hectic morning for me. That I am married now is yet to sink in. All I can tell you at the moment is, it's been the best experience of my life."
TOI learnt that a rather busy Big B took time off from his Kaun Banega Crorepatishoot to attend the wedding. He flew to Hyderabad for the wedding at 9 am in a private jet and flew back at 3 pm.
Though Kamal Haasan couldn't be a part of the celebrations, it was one of those rare occasions when superstars Rajinikanth, Chiranjeevi and the Big B came together. Boney Kapoor and Sridevi along with Shriya Saran and Rana Daggubatti were there to bless the couple as well.
Curiously no one from Ramcharan's Zanjeerteam showed up at the wedding. Apparently director Apoorva Lakhia had a family engagement, so they all stayed away. Leading lady Priyanka busy promoting her other film, sent a handpicked gift for the couple.
When contacted. Lakhia said, "But we're all leaving for Hyderabad very shortly with our gifts. There's at least three days of festivity and at least seven functions to attend."Though the formal wedding took place on Thursday, the couple will be 'marrying' again on Friday for Ramcharan's fans. A special lunch will also be hosted.
On the other hand, Chiranjeevi, who is also the Rajya Sabha member, hosted a reception for 7000 guests at the Hyderabad International Convention Center.
