Photos: Kishwer Merchant, Suyyash Rai’s fun-filled sangeet
After a fun-filled haldi and mehendi, Kishwer Merchant and Suyyash Rai had an enjoyable intimate sangeet with family and friends. Kishwer and Suyyash’s sangeet was all about song, fun, selfies and hugs.
Actors Karan Patel, wife Ankita Bhargava, Anita Hassanandani, Ravi Dubey, Barkha Bisht, Vahbiz Dorabjee, Debina Bonnerjee, Sayantani, Surbhi Jyoti, Sahil Anand, Rishabh Sinha, Raj Arora, Pooja Gor, Ritvik Dhanjiani and Asha Negi and Tanaaz Irani among others were present at the sangeet function.
The couple went crazy and danced to the tunes of Badtameez Dil and Bhangra beats. The bride and the groom made a striking entry. On the sangeet, Kishwer chose to wear a gorgeous green Sharara while the groom wore a blue embroidered Pathani with Pagdi.
When Suyyash and Kishwer came face to face at the sangeet, they smiled and gave each other a tight hug. On meeting, they complimented one another by saying, "You look so pretty," Kishwer pulled his cheeks and said, "And you look so handsome."
Sharing his thoughts, Suyyash told indianexpress.com, "It is one of the most beautiful feelings one can feel, to see other as bride and groom. It can't get better than this, She is looking damn pretty. We had planned that she would dress up as a Muslim bride and I will come dressed as a Punjabi groom and I think we are killing it."
While Kishwer looked very happy to see her man dressed up like a perfect Sikh, she jokingly complained that he took more time to get ready and reach the venue than her. "We both left our place the same time but I reached the venue half an hour before him. Generally, it is the bride who takes more time but in our case, it is always the opposite."
Suyyash blamed his pagdi for being late, but the actor-singer said it was his long wish to dress up like a Sikh at his wedding. "Whatever I have got in life, it is because of Chandigarh. Punjab is in me. So, I wanted to dress up like a Sikh for the sangeet."
In Kishwer's absence, Suyyash shared with the media that he has planned a surprise for her at the reception. He said, "There is a performance by both of us at the reception and I have also planned a surprise for Kishwer about which no one else knows, not even my family."The couple will have a court wedding followed by a star-studded reception.
