Karnataka mining baron Janardhana Reddy’s daughter Brahmani married P Rajeev Reddy, the son of a Hyderabad-based industrialist, in a glitzy affair on November 16 in Bengaluru’s Palace Grounds.
Various ceremonies were spread over five days leading up to November 16 and were attended by 50,000 people including prominent politicians, celebrities and movie stars. A replica of the lavish Vijayanagara Empire was created for the wedding ceremony.
While the groom entered on a horse-drawn chariot, the bride had a flashy procession comprising of 100 cultural troops including Brazilian samba dancers, kamsale, nandikolu kunita and tribal dance troupes. The escort went right up till the mantap, which was the recreation of the Tirupati Tirumala Temple, complete with its seven doors.
Isha Ambani, the daughter of richest Indian Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani, tied the knot with Ajay Piramal’s son Anand Piramal in a lavish wedding in Mumbai on 12th December. According to the latest buzz, the estimated cost of Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s wedding is around Rs 724 Cr ($100 million). It won’t be wrong to say that their’s total wedding cost can make anyone calculate their entire lifetime’s income. On the other side, Gali Janardhan Reddy spent Rs 550 Cr for the wedding of his daughter Brahmani Gali in 2016.
Gali Janardhan Reddy is a former politician and a Karnataka-based mining baron. In 2016, Brahmani tied the knot with Rajiv Reddy, the son of the Hyderabad-based businessman, Vikram Deva Reddy. The wedding took place at the 36 acre Bengaluru Palace Grounds on 16th November 2016 and the entire venue was made to resemble the ruins of Hampi, the great capital of the Vijaynagar Empire.
The wedding rituals witnessed Brahmani Gali dazzling in a red Kanjeevaram half-saree that reportedly cost Rs 17 Cr. The diamonds, rubies and Brahmani’s jewellery was reportedly priced at around Rs 90-98 Cr.

Yesterday, the family hosted a grand wedding reception and musical concert in Mumbai. Interestingly, music maestro AR Rahman gave a live performance at the music concert. At the reception, Bollywood celebs, as well as many politicians, made an appearance. The entire Ambani clan including Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal along with their parents, Nita Ambani, Mukesh Ambani, Ajay Piramal and Swati Piramal, Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta posed for the shutterbugs at the reception.
However, the pictures from the ceremony are here and with over 50,000 guests, the occasion was even grander than we expected. You’ll have to look at it, to believe the bling!

500 Crore Wedding Pictures Of J. Reddy’s Daughter Are Out And Lavish Is An Understatement!
How much did Reddy spend on his daughter’s wedding has become a national concern (the issue was even
raised in Lok Sabha). Bangalore Mirror does the math…
CATERING Rs 60cr
Reddy claimed over 50,000 guests attended the wedding. Given the spread (16 types of sweets alone), it
would have cost Rs 3,000 per plate
JEWELLERY Rs 150cr
Bramhani’s diamond-studded necklace alone is worth Rs 25 crore. Antique jewellery worth Rs 150 crore was
bought from four shops in Ballari and one in Bengaluru. One of the sarees she bought has gold weaved into
it. It cost Rs 40 lakh and was bought from Tamil Nadu
DECORATORS Rs 25cr
Reddy’s village, Vijayanagara empire and Tirumala temple were recreated at the venue. Also, homes of bride
and groom’s family. Wedding planners estimate that would have cost him at least Rs 25 cr.
MAKEUP ARTISTS Rs 30 LAKH
beauticians were hired from Bengaluru for the wedding. Each charged around Rs 50,000 per day. The
bride’s beautician, however, was flown in from Mumbai and charged Rs 6 lakh
DJ, LENSMEN Rs 20 LAKH
The DJ who played Telugu numbers at the Sangeet ceremony charged Rs 8 lakh. Around 15 photographers
were roped in who charged around Rs 12 lakh.
BOUNCERS Rs 60 LAKH
Around 3,000 security staff were hired for five days. Usually, they charge Rs 2,000 for five hours but in
Reddy’s case, it was Rs 12 lakh per day for five days.
That alone comes to over Rs 235 crore And it doesn’t take into account The Dakshine (souvenirs for wedding
guests); Models who served paan ; dancers who flew in from Brazil, Russia and Germany; film stars like
Tamannah and other southern stars who performed at the wedding…
