Telugu actor Allu Arjun's wedding on March 6 is going to be one of those grand affairs, attended by the who's who of Hyderabad, Secunderabad, and perhaps the country.

The Varudu (bridegroom) hero Arjun will become a bridegroom in real life when he gets married to Sneha Reddy (daughter of an educationist, who runs engineering colleges in Andhra Pradesh) on Sunday.

According to sources, invites have been sent to many the film stars in the South film industries, and Mumbai.

The guest list is likely to run into thousands considering the connections of the family (Arjun's father's sister is married to megastar-turned-politician Chiranjeevi).

Aamir Khan is expected at the wedding as his blockbuster Ghajini was produced by Allu Aravind, Arjun's father, under their Geetha Arts banner.
