Tarun Tahiliani designs Upasna-Ram Charan’s wedding outfits

Ram Charan is set to marry his childhood sweetheart, Upasana Kamineni, Thursday and the high-profile couple will wear Tarun Tahiliani-designed traditional outfits on their D-day.

Giving details about their dresses, Tahiliani said: “Upasna will wear a sheathed yellow and gold South India silk sari with a swarovski encrusted border done with zardosi French knots and a sprinkle of tiny soldered stones. This will be complemented by a rani pink zardosi corset blouse and a rani pink tulle veil.”

“Charan will be in a coordinated dhoti, paired with a fine chikan kurta and stole,” he added.

Upasana is the granddaughter of Prathap C. Reddy, founder-chairman of Apollo Hospitals. Ram Charan proposed to Upasana last year on her birthday (July 20) and they got engaged Dec 1 at a private ceremony.

Upasana is a die-hard fan of Tahiliani’s bridal collection and says he was her first choice to design her wedding dress.

“My wedding sari is designed by Tarun Tahiliani. He is known for his beautiful bridal creations and I have always liked his style, so when it came to my bridal outfit, Tarun was the first designer I thought of. Since the wedding will be a traditional Telugu ceremony, Tarun had to do a lot of research on the same,” she said.

Designer Anamika Khanna, who has styled celebrities including Sonam Kapoor and Bipasha Basu, has designed Upasna’s trousseau and some exclusive clothes for the bride’s family.

“My trousseau has been designed by my dear friend Anamika Khanna, who has also designed outfits for my entire family for the wedding ceremony. Since I am so fond of Anamika’s collections, she has been supportive by creating a unique collection for my entire family, exclusively for the wedding,” said Upasna
