DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME
P Vikram Naidu from Hyderabad had agreed to marry a girl from Machavaram, whose parents had even agreed to pay a dowry of Rs.10 lakh. However, a couple of days before the wedding, Naidu reportedly told the girl he would marry her only if her parents gave him another Rs.5 lakh as she was "heavy". The groom even suggested that she should shed 20 kg if she does not want to pay up.
