Sonakshi Sinha – #bhaikishaadi
The busiest of the Bollywood stars are shying away from tying the knot, but then they are satiated by the happiness of the starting of new journey of their siblings. Recently, bollywood’s “bhai’s” darling sister Arpita got married and last week it was the turn of DABANG Sonakshi’s #bhaikishaadi – the # that she is trending on twitter.
Shatrugan and Poonam Sinha’s elder son – Kush, who also was an assistant director to Anurag Kashyap for ‘Bombay Velvet’ is aspiring to be a director recently tied knot with Taruna Agarwal, a close friend of his and the daughter of a prominent NRI family from London. The duo got engaged in a low key ceremony in October 2014.
The wedding ceremony on 17th January, 2015 was a close knit affair and kept private, where the media was not allowed to enter. The fans were however updated with the latest at the wedding , thanks to Sonakshi Sinha’s parade of party posts from her big brother Kussh Sinha’s big week on January 16 with a video of her singing for guests, and other innumerable pics.
The wedding was a private affair and the guest list included the big wigs of the film industry but the most special guest of the day was Hon. PM of our country – Mr. Narendra Modi. Mr. Modi, who attended the pheras, sported his traditional silk kurta and nehru jacket. He reached the hotel where the ceremony was organized, spent 30 minutes with the Sinha’s and left. Sonakshi , who had invited him for the wedding along with her parents earlier this month, thanked him on Twitter.
Another special guest were the Bachchan Family. Back in the ’80s, Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha worked together in a number of films and stayed with each other through thick and thin. But the friendship went sour when Shatrughan Sinha was not invited to Aishwarya and Abhishek’s wedding. But the Bachchan family not only attended the wedding, also posed happily for the cameras. While Jaya Bachchan mingled with women, Big B was spotted in conversation with Shaan co-star Shatrughan Sinha, Sona thanked them by – “Salaamat rahe dostaana aapka! Thank u @SrBachchan uncle and Jaya aunty for the warmth and happiness.”
The Star Studded Reception
The reception held on 19th January was a lavish affair with the who’s who of Bollywood reaching the venue to bless the couple. On the guest list were Kajol and Tanisha Mukherjee, Rekha, Neetu and Rishi Kapoor, Boney Kapoor, singer Mika Singh and Hema Malini, whose youngest daughter tied the knot early last year. South Indian superstar Rajinikanth, and Nita and Mukesh Ambani joined as well.
The year 2015 started with happiness for Ms. Shotgun – her first movie of the year received rave reviews, followed by the happiness of her elder bro’s marriage. Although the media was not allowed inside the wedding, Sona made sure that she acted the part of wedding reporter at her best – Along with glimpses of the mandap and group selfies with friends, Sinha used her camera to document her different looks through the celebrations as well and the #bhaikishaadi is trending.
The actress made sure that she looked her best and suited the coveted title of Groom’s Sister by picking an ivory and gold Anita Dongre for the Mehendi, Mango yellow Manish Malhotra for the Mughal-theme Sangeet, and a baby blue Pernia Qureshi Label for The Wedding. By the reception, Sinha was back to Manish Malhotra, this time choosing a mirrorwork lehenga in soft pink.
The Mangal Phera for the Sinha family’s eldest child brought in lots of happiness for family and friends. The Bollywood has just kicked of this wedding year with SOHA ALI KHAN to be married on 25th of January. Keep watching this space for the latest updates.
