The pre-wedding rituals were held a day before at a farmhouse in Ramanagara near Bengaluru. HD Kumaraswamy had apologised for not being able to invite everyone to the wedding, due to the restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The JD(S) leader had added that only 60-70 guests could be invited to the wedding, and that a grand reception once everything resolves after the COVID-19 pandemic was on the cards.
Nikhil and Revathi had got engaged on February 9. The former had contested in the Lok Sabha elections from Mandya constituency, where he had lost to actor-politician Sumalatha, wife of late Ambareesh. Nikhil’s grandfather Deve Gowda is a former Prime Minister of the country.
Nikhil Kumaraswamy has also acted in films like Jaguar, Seetharama Kalyana, Kurukshetra. Revathi is the grand-niece of former Congress leader and Housing Minister H Krishnappa.
