Manchu Manoj’s Pre-Wedding Party: Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna Bond Big Time at Pellikoduku
South superstar Mohan Babu’s actor son Manchu Manoj is getting married and pre-wedding festivities have begun with a bang in Hyderabad.
A glitzy sangeet was held on May 18 for Manoj, the 31-year-old star of Telugu films such as Donga Dongadi and Bindaas, and his bride-to-be Pranathi Reddy.
Manoj wore a sherwani at the sangeet and Pranathi looked lovely in a pink gown.
Megastar Chiranjeevi and Nandamuri Balakrishna were spotted bonding big time at Mohan Babu’s son, actor Manchu Manoj’s pre-wedding party held in the third week of May.
Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna are considered as arch rivals in the fields of both film and politics. Though they have not admitted it publicly, they are known for their war of words. They were seen indirectly taking digs at each other on public platforms on several occasions . They were not seen together in recent times, especially after the last assembly polls and Lok Sabha elections.
But Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna recently seemed to have kept aside their rivalry. Everyone was surprised when they spent some quality time together at Pellikoduku, the ritual to put the turmeric on the groom as a good omen, held at Mohan Babu’s residence in Shamshabad on 13 May. They were seen laughing as they chatted with the members of Manchu family. They also posed together for the photographers.
This bonding of Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna was one of the best moment for some people from the film industry, who were present at the Pellikoduku ceremony of Manchu Manoj. They could not stop themselves from capturing some of their rare moments and post the photos on Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites.
