Ramcharan’s Pellikoduku ceremony

As part of the Telugu tradition, actor Ram Charan will be made pellikoduku (literally translates to ‘groom’) today at a simple ceremony at Chiranjeevi’s residence.

For the event, the Mega Star’s house is being decorated in traditional style. “White and red is the colour theme,” reveals Ch Sumalatha, who is doing the flower decor for the ceremony. Jasmines from Madurai, lilies from Coimbatore and carnations from Calcutta are being flown in.

A big flower umbrella, we learn, will occupy centrestage on the dais. The groom will be seated under the umbrella for the ceremony. Even the lunch is going to be traditional Andhra fare that will be served onplantain leaves.

For the past one week, Chiranjeevi’s residence was a cynosure of all eyes as his place sported a new look each day for the various pre-wedding ceremonies. One of the parties even had Bollywood star Salman Khan in attendance

Yesterday, the house was decorated for the mehndi ceremony in Rajasthani style. Orange, pink and green was the theme for the Mehendi event.
