Many individuals from this generation are of the opinion that people spend a lot of money on their weddings; something that is rational. But it is easier said than done. On an average, people spend about 2 million rupees on their weddings and it is deemed unavoidable.
But sometimes, a news of an expensive wedding drives people insane and forces the hate to come out of them. Let’s face it, if you had that kind of money, you’d probably spend it on your weddings like this!
Currently receiving hatred on the internet for an extravagant wedding, is the wedding of the daughter of Janardhana Reddy. Mr. Reddy is a businessman and also has been the state minister.
People have called it “an obscene display of wealth.”
