The entire country is euphoric with the relentless discussions about the black money ever since Modi made the Rs.500 and Rs.1,000 currency notes illegal. This loud buzz around black money is now jeopardizing one of the most talked about and insanely expensive weddings in India.
It is well-known that former BJP minister and tainted mining baron from Karnataka Gali Janardhan Reddy is marrying off his daughter on November 16. The mining czar has invited all the who’s who of film, political and industrial spectrum for the wedding.
However, a latest diktat by the BJP high command has barred the party’s leaders from attending this high-profile wedding. Apparently, the BJP think-tank didn’t want to dilute its fight against black money by allowing its leaders to rub their shoulders with Gali Janardhan Reddy, who had spent several months in jail on corruption and black money charges.
Apart from the politicians, even the country’s well-known film stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and other Bollywood and stars from regional film industries too are believed to be in dilemma whether to attend and perform at the wedding or not. Apparently, some of these stars are paid on par with their movie remunerations for one night’s performances.
