Nepal’s very first billionaire, Binod Chaudhary is dawning headlines yet again for organising an extravagant wedding for his younger son Varun. The three-day event that commenced on the 26th of April is taking place at the Jag Mandir palace and luxury heritage hotels in India’s Lake City, Udaipur.
Two years ago, the Nepalese billionaire also hosted the wedding of his older son in the city of Jaipur. Attended by several top politicians and big corporate names, the Udaipur wedding seems to be an equally glamorous affair.
