A wedding, an engagement and the return of actress Revathi in Tollywood are the highlights of this week
The sombre mood in south India post Chennai floods seems to have hit the party scene in Hyderabad too. The week was a bit dry. First we thought the much-hyped IIFA Utsavam would happen, but that did not take off as most stars were stuck in Chennai.
However, the wedding of director Nag Ashwin with producer Priyanka Dutt, younger daughter of well-known producer and distributor C. Ashwini Dutt of Vyjayanthi Movies, made up for all the glamour and fanfare. The bride and groom opted for co-ordinated gold and peach and looked radiant in traditional finery. The usual suspects – Mahesh-Namr ata, Ram Charan – Upasana, NTR-Pranitha and Allu Arjun-Sneha attended the do.
It was double treat this week with actor Varun Sandesh getting engaged to actress Vithika at the Jubilee Hills Club.The actor went all out on social media to treat his fans to some snaps from his album.
Audio launches in the city have become as big as award nights these days. It’s typically four or five hour show at a mega venue with music, dance, celebs and the works. Loafer audio launch on Monday had all the elements. My personal favourite was being able to see the classy Tamil actress Revathi back in Telugu cinema after a long time. She seemed to blow away all the blues of a winter evening looking gorgeous in an ink blue saree.
Next week seems to be promising with Blenders Pride Fashion Week lined up for the weekend. More power to the good life!
