“My dad’s childhood friends, well-wishers, and industry colleagues from different places dropped by and extended their good wishes,” he shares, adding that all the rituals took place as per Telugu customs. While the mehendi ceremony took place at his residence, the Shastipoorthi, and homam were conducted at a convention centre.
“Dad was so emotional to see the turnout even during this pandemic. He thanked everyone for their presence and blessings. Chiranjeevi garu said the large number of guests was a reflection of the love my father commands,” Aadi added.
