Sonia Gandhi invites newly wed Esha-Bharat for dinner

Many Political bigwigs are seen at Esha Deol and Bharat Takhani’s wedding reception held on June 30th. But among the prominent political personalities who missed the grand wedding reception are congress president and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. They could not attend the ceremony due to security reason but Sonia Gandhi has invited Esha and Bharat for dinner.

"We had invited PM and Sonia Gandhi for the wedding. They couldn't come for security reasons. If it would have been in Delhi, they would have made it. It's a sweet gesture from Sonia Gandhi that she has sent Esha and Bharat an invite that whenever they are in Delhi, they should go to her place for lunch or dinner," the actress told.

BJP member Hema Malini was nominated member of the Rajya Sabha in 2003-2009. Political bigwigs like LK Advani, Sushma Swaraj, Ravi Shankar, Raj Thackery and Suresh Kalmadi and Samajwadi pary leader Amar Singh attended the grand wedding reception. Bollywood celebs turned up after 10pm. Kajol, Tanisha, Tanuja, Vidya Balan, Tabu, Sushmita Sen, Jeetendra with his family, Zayed Khan arrived with his wife, Sridevi was seen with husband Boney Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit was spotted with husband Sriram Nene, Zeenat Aman and many more graced the occasion.

Mother and veteran actress Hema Malini thanked who wished Esha and Bharat. "A mother always gives her good wishes and then I am very happy, Esha got married yesterday and today is the reception and I am seeing that people from across India are sending their wishes and I would like to thank everybody who has sent their wishes for us," said Hema Malini.

Esha and Bharat had a lavish wedding at Iskcon temple in Mumbai on June 29th.
