Wedding bells for kannada director Suri

He will marry his long-time sweetheart Pallavi, a painter.

Ace kannada director Suri is set to marry his long-time girlfriend Pallavi. Hailing from Davangere, Pallavi is an accomplished painter while Suri started as a painter and turned to artdirection, dialogue writing and then directing. Known each other for nearly five years, the two will tie the knot in at Kollur’s Mookambika temple near Mangalore on December 8.

“Only members of both the families will be present. Later, we will have a reception in Bangalore,” said Suri.

“I knew the girl and the families have approved, so it can be called love-cum-arranged marriage. It will be a simple function in the temple. True, it is about 450 km from Bangalore and that is the reason we will have a reception later,” Suri said. Sources said Mookambika shrine was Suri's mother’s choice. The wedding was advanced as the month of Ashada is to set in soon. “Otherwise the marriage would have happened held only next year,” Suri said.

Suri is basking in the success of his latest film Jackie, which has become the highest-grossing Kannada film during its 50-day run at the box office.
