The groom is introduced with white stallions in the backdrop.

The mining minister is sending rich ‘Boxed Invitations’ to the prominent personalities in various fields. This unique and elegant invitation features a video snippet. The box comes with a small LCD screen and the auto play video is about one minute featuring Gali and his family along with the groom-to-be Rajeev Reddy in a special song. There is also buzz that some of the top league actors belonging to Bollywood are going to perform during the event.
