Two Weddings: Directors Raju Murugan And Vikram Kumar Tie The Knot On The Same Day

Directors Raju Murugan of Joker fame, and Vikram Kumar of 24 fame, tied the knot on Sunday, 4 September with their respective fiancées. Although the weddings took place on the same day, the two were very different in scales: while Murugan’s wedding was a private affair at Aarupadai Murugan Temple in Chennai’s Besant Nagar, Kumar’s wedding, also in Chennai, was a grand one with several celebrities in attendance. As expected, both the directors’ names were trending on Twitter for hours.
Raju Murugan, who has two critically acclaimed films to his credit (Cuckoo and Joker), got married to Hema Sinha, a popular anchor on the channel, Sun Music. Raju, who started his career as an assistant director to N Lingusamy, was said to be dating Sinha for the last couple of years. Director Bala, director Lingusamy and producer SR Prabhu were among the guests who were present at the temple.

Director Vikram Kumar, known for his horror film Yavarum Nalam (13 B in Hindi), and Suriya-starrer science-fiction thriller 24, married sound engineer Srinidhi Venkatesh. “The wedding, which took place earlier this morning, was attended by the families of the couple and their close friends. A grand reception party is planned for the evening,” reports IANS.
Actor Suriya and music maestro A R Rahman were among the few celebrities who attended the wedding.

AR Rahman even shared a selfie with the couple on Facebook:

Vikram Kumar and Srinidhi Venkatesh were said to be dating since working together on 24. Srinidhi, who began as an intern with Rahman during Raavan (2010), is now an established sound engineer in the industry with popular songs to her credit including Chali Kahaani from Tamasha, songs from Mohenjo Daro, and Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada (AYM).  Srinidhi has also dabbled in singing, featuring in a song she sang and wrote called Lonely Sound. She also sang for Anirudh Ravichander’s latest single, Avalukkenna.
