The reality is that Covid-19 cases continue to rise and we don’t want our celebrations to risk anybody’s health, so I want to set the right example. The ceremony will be small but beautiful.” Also Read - Unlock 4: Hyderabad Metro to Resume Operations From September 7 in Graded Manner | Read Here Complete Guidelines
