In a dramatic development, the couple who shot their pre-wedding photo shoot inside the Durbar Hall and other ornate sections of the Amba Vilas Palace has deactivated their Facebook profiles following the controversy over the issue.
On Thursday, City Today had published a report “Pre-wedding photo shoot inside Mysuru Palace” that highlighted how a couple was allowed to shoot inside the palace when it is out-of-bounds for others. Reacting to the reports, Maharani Pramoda Devi had said that despite being from the royal family even they don’t shoot photographs inside the palace. Deputy Director of Palace Board T S Subramanya has already ordered an investigation into the issue.
The couple, identified as Adithya and Navyatha, deleted the posts soon after the media began flashing reports of the shoot and when the public began questioning the people who allowed it. Soon, the wedding website, where the photographs and the video was uploaded, too removed the posts. Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner C Shikha, who is also the Executive Officer of Mysuru Palace Board, has ordered an inquiry into the incident. She has ordered a probe by City Armed Reserve ACP V Shylendra who is the in-charge of palace security. She said: “We have not given permission to shoot photographs inside the palace. Even if permission is given for photography, it is restricted to outside the palace. And not inside.”
A post by a person named Vignesh Karthi says: ‘Lucky couple who got change for this photography. Just 10 minutes to shoot inside the Mysore Maharaja Palace and here’s what they got.”
The photo shoot was done by well-known wedding photography team `Photriya Photography’ a Hyderabad based photography team.
