It was being touted as the biggest celebration in the history of Chennai (former Madras). Moreover, why shouldn’t it be? The occasion was the wedding festivities of Soundarya, the younger daughter of superstar Rajinikanth (referred to as Thalaivar (leader) or demi-god amongst the natives).
In a typical Brahmin ceremony on early Friday morning, Soundarya married Ashwin Kumar, Stanford graduate and Chennai entrepreneur. Chefs were specially flown in from different cities for the wedding.
