The countdown has begun for Yash-Radhika’s wedding, with just 10 days to go. We hear around 1,000 cards have been printed at Govardhan Printers and Rajkumar Painters, and are being distributed by Yash and Radhika.
Meanwhile, beautiful mantaps are being erected for the muhurat and reception, and under the guidance of art director Arun Sagar, who has taken charge of all the design work for the wedding. The art director has already started his work on these sets with a team of 60 to 70 people, who are mostly from here and with a few moulders from Chennai.
The muhurath set will be modelled after temple architecture and will have structural elements from Belur and Halebidu. Will the mantap borrow from Belur’s Chennakesava Temple minimalist architecure or the later Hoysala architecture that leaned towards detailing and figurines? Halebidu’s temples are also known for the minute and intricately carved birds, deities and dancers.
The reception stage will be a massive affair, inspired by the Royal Indian Wedding theme. Dhruva Kumar, Chandru, Udupa and Sommayya, among few others, will be taking care of the floral and lighting arrangements, all under the guidance of Arun.
The muhurat is on December 9. The couple has planned a two-day reception inviting celebrities and near-and-dear ones on December 10 and exclusively for fans on December 11.
