The much awaited D-day of Bollywood has arrived! With Friday, 3rd February round the corner, actors Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza will be tying the holy marital knot and become made for each other ‘forever’ in just a matter of hours. The wedding preparations are in full swing and if the ‘sangeet’ celebration is anything to go by, then we can expect a cracker of a wedding between the ‘Tujhe Meri Kasam’ couple.
All about Sangeet
The ‘sangeet’ ceremony was celebrated with intense zeal and fervor with most of the big Bollywood fraternity coming together to make the occasion a loud & cheerful one. Close friends from the tinsel town that gathered at famous ‘sangeet’ venue of Taj Lands End included the newly made father Abhishek Bachchan, the macho ‘Kancha Cheena’ Sanjay Dutt, the effervescent Gauri Khan and the still unmarried Karan Johar. Arshad Warsi and Jacky Bhagnani, who are part of close circle friends, were amongst the early birds and had ‘jashn’ with complete enthusiasm. Soha Ali Khan, Asin, Sonali Bendre, Rishi & Neetu Kapoor, Arbaaz & Malaika Khan, Suniel Shetty and Ashutosh Gowariker were some of the other high-profile invitees.
Why Genelia and Riteish looked ‘wow’
The soon-to-be-married couple looked fabulous in their chosen ensemble at ‘sangeet’. While Riteish sparkled in a regal turquoise Sherwani, the demure Genelia was her stunning self in a white lehenga that was embellished with peach.
Special ‘sangeet’ moment
Everybody sang, danced and frolicked feverishly grooving to a number of chartbusters. But the special moment arrived when Genelia and Riteish decided to take matters in their own hands and set the dance floor on fire. Clearly, it was a night to remember!
Pre-wedding arrangements and hullaballoo
Even as the sound of the festive ‘sangeet’ is yet to fade away, the pre-wedding arrangements are going on with alcoholic intensity and zeal. The couple and their near & dear ones are really looking forward to the big fat Bollywood wedding that Friday will usher in.
Reportedly, plans have been laid for a double marriage between Genelia and Riteish to observe rituals of both their creeds. They plan to walk the aisle in a beautiful but private ‘church wedding’ observing all the Christian customs of Genelia’s caste. And then the much publicized and ‘dhoom dhaam’ Maharashtrian wedding is definitely on the cards. The ‘church wedding’ shall be a private affair with only close family members present though the presence of Karan Johar, Jackky Bhagnani, sister Honey and papa Vashu Bhagnani is expected. However, the whole of Bollywood is likely to make its presence felt during the colorful Maharashtrian marriage.
The wedding gown is one of the most-talked about things as far as the bride is concerned. As per the buzz, Genelia will be draping a sober, milky white wedding gown for her church wedding. She shall be wearing a beautiful piece designed by renowned designers Nikhil Mehra and Shantanu. For the big wedding reception, she may wear Manish Malhotra.
We wish both Riteish and Genelia a mirthful, bright and peaceful life ahead! Hopefully, they will be the ‘lived together happily forever’ couple…….Amen to that!
