March 14 – A Wedding had to be called off in Bangalore early this week over the choice of biryani served for dinner. While the groom’s side insisted on mutton biryani, what was finally served was chicken one.
According to news reports, the wedding was cancelled despite mediation by elderly members of both families.
At Shaadi Mahal on Tannery Road where the reception was held on Sunday, the groom’s family took exception to the chicken biryani that was on the menu. They wanted mutton biryani and entered into an argument with the bride’s family.
As emotions ran high at the venue, the feisty bride conveyed her decision not to marry the man.
“The wedding date was fixed about 20 days ago, I had not even seen him earlier. They hurried with the wedding as he had to fly back to the Middle East at the earliest,” the woman told The Times of India.
“My family also had doubts about his moral character and that set me thinking. Finally, the biryani episode settled it and I knew I would not have been happy in the relationship,” the TOI report quoted the woman as saying.
Later, she walked to the KG Halli police station along with her parents trying to save herself from the marriage. The police assured her anonymity but she was disappointed that a section of media named her.
