High- wattage Wedding
Actor- turned- politician N. T. Rama Rao’s son N. Balakrishna staged a 21st century cinematic version of the magical Indian rope trick. The occasion: The marriage of younger daughter Tejaswini on August 21 in Hyderabad. Balakrishna had the couple hoisted up on a majestic mandap, designed by Telugu film art director Anand Sai, that was suspended in air by a 120- foot crane. What is more, high- wattage bulbs lit up the 140- feetlong and 60- feet- deep gold and blue swinging stage. If only such magic could help brother- in- law N. Chandrababu Naidu in the 2014 General Elections.
