Rana Daggubati-Miheeka Bajaj nuptials on August 8: From number of guests, to rituals to venue, all you need to know about the Telugu-Marwari wedding ceremony


Rana Daggubati and Miheeka Bajaj are all set to tie the knot on Saturday, August 8. Their roka ceremony was held in May which was a close knit ceremony. The wedding will also be an intimate affair given the Coronavirus pandemic. Now details about the upcoming nuptials have also come out. Reportedly, the guest list has been restricted to only 30 people and all the rituals will be carried out keeping with traditional Telugu and Marwari customs. The parents of the couple said that they want both the customs so that the ‘kids don’t miss out’ on anything.

Rana’s father and producer Daggubati Suresh Babu told a leading daily in an interview, “There will not be more than 30 people present at the wedding. We want to limit the guest list to just family and we haven’t invited even some of our closest friends, within and outside the film industry. The reality is that Covid-19 cases continue to rise and we don’t want our celebrations to risk anybody’s health, so I want to set the right example. The ceremony will be small but beautiful. Everybody who will attend the wedding will get tested for Covid-19. We will also keep sanitisers across the venue and maintain social distancing. It’s a happy occasion and we want to make it a safe one too.”

Miheeka’s mother Bunty Bajaj also told the daily, “All functions will take place with our traditional Telugu and Marwari customs. We wanted all the functions to go on just like every other wedding. We don’t want our kids to miss out on anything. Only difference would be the reduced guest list. Miheeka and I have designed the entire theme for the wedding and we got a team from Delhi to execute it. I want to keep the theme a surprise so I won’t reveal what it is yet, but it will be truly special. Every girl dreams about her wedding day and wants it to be perfect and Miheeka is no different. As her mother, I’m trying everything I can to make it special for her. I have one or two surprises in store for her and I can’t wait to see her reaction on the D-Day.”

The daily further reported that the Pellikoduku function will be performed at Rana’s home while the Mata Ki Chowki will be held at Miheeka’s place. The wedding was previously planned at a hotel but now the families have decided to conduct the wedding ceremonies at Rama Naidu studios where the roka ceremony was held on May 21.
