Grand celebrations at ancestral fort for Ram Charan and Upasana

Hyderabad: It had all the trappings of tradition and ceremony with a fort as the perfect setting. The Ram Charan – Upasna wedding went into an overdrive with a traditional ceremony at the century old family fort of the bride at Domakonda in Nizamabad district, about 100 kms north of Hyderabad. The morning at Domakonda started with Upasna doing her puja with her parents Anil and Shobana Kamineni at the Kakatiyan era Shiva temple and was soon joined by Ram Charan and his dad, Chiranjeevi. That done, Upasna gifted sarees to the women of the village, a tradition that the family has been following for generations.

From there, the congregation moved to the fort where a small ceremony was performed. A traditional procession was held after that where Upasna had to walk along a pathway of sarees till the entrance of the fort and seek the blessings at the Pochamma temple. The entire population turned up for the ceremony and the village elders took the lead in conducting the various aspects of what was truly a memorable day.

The wedding of the year will be held on June 14 at Temple Trees, Moinabad and is expected to be attended by around 4000 friends and family. The same evening Ram Charan’s father and mega star Chiranjeevi will be hosting a reception for around 7,000 guests at Hyderabad International Convention Center. The next morning on June 15, will be a day reserved for Ram Charan’s fans to savour which will be followed by lunch.
