IshmitThe wedding bells are ringing. For a marriage arranged in family heaven, Anuj Saxena, Abhay Kapoor of Kkusum, ties the knot with Delhi girl Ishmit Dhadial on February 12 at Mumbai...
...Saxena’s fiancée comes from the reputed business family behind Bina Enterprises, manufacturers of musical instruments for 60 years. They have three showrooms in the city, and one in Southall, London.

The Mater Dei School alumna is a Commerce graduate from the Shriram College of Commerce who’s done a course in International Finance from Harvard University, Boston. She’s worked with real estate giants Richard Ellis and Standard Chartered and is a basketball player and amateur painter.

Ishmit’s favourite fashion designers are Suneet Varma and Ravi Bajaj and her trousseau will include their creations. What she admires most about Saxena is his sense of humour. “I am looking forward to starting a new life in Mumbai,” says Dhadial. “I love listening to her elongated hi!” reciprocates Saxena. The TV star has left the task of designing his wedding sherwani, in charcoal black, on Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla.

The marriage ceremony will be preceded by weeklong celebrations. These include a party at the Mumbai nightclub Red Light on February 9 followed by sangeet at Mayfair Rooms the next day.

Saxena is preparing to make a foray into films with Kab Tak and with Saara Akash on Star doing well; he has everything going for him. “My father has been joking with me about inviting all my ex- girlfriends for the marriage,” says the MBBS from Grand Medical College, Mumbai. The couple flies off for a weeklong honeymoon to Colombo on February 23.
