In the early hours of June 5, Kannada cinema’s Junior Rebel Star, Abishek Ambareesh tied the knot with long-time girlfriend Aviva Bidapa in Bengaluru. The traditional ceremony, held at the Palace Grounds in the heart of the city, began in the wee hours of Monday morning, with nuptial muhurtha between 9.30 am and 10.30 am. The wedding saw the who’s who of Sandalwood line up to wish the son of the late Rebel Star Ambareesh and actress-politician Sumalatha. While Kiccha Sudeep, Yash, Prajwal Devaraj, Gurukiran, etc., were spotted with their families, Vijayalakshmi Darshan and Ashwini Puneeth Rajkumar were also seen blessing the newly-weds. Ambareesh and Sumalatha’s close friends Rajinikanth and Mohan Babu were also among the many stars who came to shower the couple with love.
While the wedding itself was only for close friends of the family, Abishek will have a lavish reception on June 7. One film old Abishek, who is gearing up for the release of his next, Bad Manners, that will be in theatres on June 29, has been in love with Aviva for many years. The entrepreneur and fashionista is the daughter of fashion guru Prasad Bidapa and Judith. The duo had got engaged in December last year.
Abishek made his big-screen debut in 2019 with Amar, which did not click with audiences. His next, Bad Manners, has been directed by Duniya Suri and is expected to be the actor’s relaunch venture. He has two other films lined up – one with director S Krishna and the other with Mahesh Kumar. Aviva, meanwhile, has multiple business interests, including a modelling agency and a swimwear collection. She was earlier married to businessman Vikram Mehta, whom she divorced in 2016.
