Clearly, Chiranjeevi's younger daughter, Srija's wedding is the big fat Tollywood wedding of the year. Though the family wanted it to be a privy affair, letting out a glimpse from the Mega wedding became inevitable, since many fans were waiting eagerly to witness the family's big day.
Meanwhile, something that caught our eye is Srija's looks for all the wedding events. From sporting a boho look, to going completely traditional with the kanjeevarams, the mega bride tried everything in between.
Apparently, it was this woman, who put it all together for the bride and made her look ethereal. Read Tollywood's famous stylist, Indrakshi Pattanaik spill the beans about what went into styling Srija for her wedding, what's coming at the reception tonight(March 31st) and how warm the family were to her.
Indrakshi credits the major share to Srija and thinks she is very clear about what she wants. "From the first conversation we had, the first thing that came to my mind was "Wow! What a calm & organised bride-to-be"! Srija is a very organised girl, with no inhibitions. She was always open to new ideas from my side - our personal styles are different."
"She knew what kind of look she wanted for each of the 6 events, traditional/western etc and what she imagined I helped visualize it practically with lots of referencing, calling up designers for look books, ideation, sending photos from stores I went to on her behalf, FaceTiming, Pinterest etc since we were doing it via long distance while I was in Mumbai.", said the stylist recalling the pre-wedding days spent on a run.
Chiranjeevi and his wife apparently thanked Indrakshi for making Srija look, the way she wanted and it of course made her day. "From the cute welcome gift in the room, to continuous concerns if I ate or not. Everyone was so warm, always with a big smile. I felt like home. I never imagined a wedding so big & grand, each guest was so personally well taken cared of. It made my day when her parents thanked me for helping Srija."
"The family sets some serious examples of #FamilyGoals #SiblingGoals & #RelationshipGoals too in the industry *WoodTouch* so happy for them. Grateful to experience this.", she further added, having seen the family so close.
And, if there is anyone to thank, Indrakshi gives it to Allu Sirish, whom she has also styled for the wedding, for introducing her to Srija. She adds that Sandy, who worked on Srija's make-up and hair styling, complimented the looks really well, matching up to her wavelength.
When we asked about how Srija is going to look at the reception, tonight in Hyderabad, "Srija loves old rose, and all things floral, feminine & delicate. And that's all I can tell you! Let's wait for the big night! *fingers crossed*", Indrakshi quipped.
