“Since Preity has worked with the biggest names in the film industry and continues to remain close friends with several of them, she plans to host a big celebration in Mumbai where we can expect some of the biggest names to attend,” a source was quoted as saying earlier.

It was also reported that the couple will auction the wedding pictures and donate the proceeds to the Preity Zinta Foundation. “The couple has decided to direct all the hype and anticipation surrounding their wedding into a charitable cause. They will be putting their private wedding images up for auction and the proceeds generated from these will go towards the Preity Zinta Foundation,” a source said.
