Arpita-Aayush's wedding: An affair to remember


Bollywood is currently abuzz with the wedding of Arpita Khan, Salman Khan’s younger sister. The marriage ceremony will take place on 18th of November in Hyderabad and pre-wedding ceremonies have already begun. The entire family is busy with the last minute preparations.

On Sunday, Mumbai’s Galaxy Apartment was buzzing with activity as the mehendi-sangeet ceremony was scheduled to take place on that day. Several members of the family could be seen around the building throughout the day like Sohail Khan and Salman’s mother Salma Khan (Sushila Charak).

The ceremony was also graced by a very special guest in the form of Shahrukh Khan. SRK and Salman’s love-hate relationship is almost legendary in Bollywood. But SRK earlier said, "Inshaallah... She is like my sister. I have seen her from childhood. So most certainly, yeah. There's no question of not going. I don't know whether the invitation has come or not. I've just reached here. But we have a family relation and I don't need an invite for Arpita's wedding. As a child, Arpita has played in my arms. So 100 percent I will go." 

Salman’s brother-in-law Atul Agnohotri shared a photo on Twitter where Salman and SRK are seen together kissing Arpita affectionately. Looks like wedding bells have made the Khans forget the past at least for now. The third of the ‘Big 3’Khans’ Aamir has also said that he will be present at the wedding and he does not require any formal invitation. Arpita was also photographed during the haldi ceremony with friends and family and the photo was shared on social networking sites.

Later in the evening, during the sangeet ceremony, Salman’s ex girlfriend Katrina Kaif performed a special song. Salman and his brother’s Sohail and Arbaaz also performed. The evening celebrations were held at the famous Taj Lands End in Mumbai. As per reports, Arpita has already visited the in-laws home sometime back where she was given a traditional welcome with ‘aarti’ and ‘tika’.

Now everyone is looking forward to the big day on 18th November when the actual wedding will take place at the Taj Faluknama palace in Hyderabad. The guest list is mind boggling. From PM Narendra Modi, President Pranab Mukherjee to the titans of Bollywood like Amitabh Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan all are invited. After the wedding in Hyderabad, a grand reception will also be held in Mumbai, on 21 November at a posh five star hotel.
