On the wedding and more


‘Akshay Tritiya’ is considered the only day in the hindu calendar which does not require a shubh mahurat.. the entire day is fortuitous… It falls on April 20th this year.. the day chosen by the families for the Abhi Ash nuptials..Hmmm.. what is the harm in propitiating the ‘stars’..they ensured them stardom in the first place. Deep down, we are all humans with our fears, doubts and apprehensions. Anything to guarantee a peaceful wedded life is welcome. After all, name and fame ..fickle food on a shifty plate. If ones emotional life runs dry no amount of material accoutrements can replace the emptiness .

Guest list is ‘Exclusive’..No Khans SRK, Aamir, Salman. So far it goes so:

Anil and Tina Ambani, Subroto Roy,Kajol and Ajay, Yash Chopra & Sons,Kirron Kher and son Sikander (what of Anupam Kher??)Karan Johar and his mother Hiroo,Sonali Bendre and her hubby Goldie Behl (close friend of Abhi)..of course Amar singh is no longer a friend..dont choke.. He’s family 🙂 I guess it would also include Jaya’s FTII buddies, Danny etc. The list of Bollywood invites may be exculsive.. but the total number including family et all would be close to 300 or so..hardly a figure considering it represents both families Rai and Bachchans.

Invitation card is more of a ‘volume’ ..bookish with invites beginning from 18th..the Mehdi and will carry on till 20th the wedding at..AB’s previous bungalow..occupied by his mother Mrs. Teji Bachchan presently. The media and tabloids are getting into a frenzy.. Imagine showing on National T.V. laborers carrying in truckloads of paraphernalia..Hmm..this is not so happening really..I mean till its breaking news its fine..but cannot make it a ‘live telecast’!! Its only a wedding..and all the best and all that!

Update: 30th March: Finally..dates been set for 20th April . Venue..Prateeksha, Big B’s Bungalow at Juhu.. Guest list only..and those considered so.

Update @27th January 12-20 p.m: speculation is rife that Abhishek and ash are married at a temple in Vindhyanchal near Banaras U.P./… dodging the media. This is a temple which is supposed to nullify ill effects of planetary configurations…The sindoor was filled in Ashs ‘maang’ which denoted ‘marriage’..although there was no other wedding finery, or dressing up involved. In half an hour it was all over. This was confirmed by a priest present there who spoke to a T.V. channel They had flown down in a helicopter, and in the presence of Ab, Jaya, Amar Singh and his family and Mulayam Singh, they are reported to be wed. ..without fanfare!! .

It is a possibility that the auspiciousness of the Day today may have led to this hurried ‘token’ ‘cermony’ to be followed by an elaborate affair later. The Goddess of this temple assures a happy wedded life..perhaps the combinaton of the day with the venue may have led to this.

The news of the Aishwarya Rai Abhishek Bachchan betrothal has spread in a flash the world over. Not surprising considering that he is easily one of the most if not ‘the most’ eligible bachelors in the film fraternity, and she a Ms. World who has carved quite a niche for herself, in not just the hearts of cinephiles, ( disagree? think “Hum dil de chuke sanam) but also the average world citizen.

What has amused me however is the timing of the announcement from no other than the proud father Amitabh Bachchan himself. (more…)
