Unseen pics: Neil Nitin Mukesh-Rukmini's ring ceremony and mehendi
Neil Nitin Mukesh and Rukmini Sahay will enter into wedlock in Udaipur today and the pre-wedding rituals kick-started two days ago with ring, mehendi and sangeet ceremony. The mehendi ceremony of Neil and Rukmini was very colorful. Along with the would-to-be bride and the groom, all the family members and friends were dressed in colorful attires. The venue was beautifully decorated.
The mehendi ceremony had a royal Rajasthani touch. Fire dancers were invited to make the event memorable. Bride-to-be Rukmini wore a beautiful lehenga in pastel shades with floral jewellery, while the groom-to-be Neil donned an orange and pink traditional attire.
During the sangeet night, Neil and Rukmini exchanged rings and hit the dance floor. Neil grooved to Kala Chashma. Later, the couple took blessings from Neil's father Nitin Mukesh.
Neil and Rukmini got engaged last year in October. Both the bride and the groom’s family knew each other very well.
The big fat royal wedding will take place today and it will be followed by a lavish weding reception on 17th February. Who’s who of Bollywood are expected to grace the wedding reception party of Neil Nitin Mukesh and Rukmini Sahay.
The ring ceremony includes some champagne popping, cake cutting.
Neil Nitin Mukesh said, “It is brilliant to see the family getting together. I’d like to call the big fat family get together rather than the big fat Punjabi family. It all just feels like a family holiday.”
Rukmini looked stunning in a shining lehenga while Neil looked dapper in a maroon sherwani.
Neil's parents Nitin Mukesh and Nishi Mukesh is quite impressed by Rukmini's simplicity and upbringing. Nitin Mukesh said, "She reflects the values and traditions that Neil has been raised with and complements him in every way possible. The celebrations to the final countdown have already begun."
After marriage, Neil and Rukmini have no plans to move out of the Mukesh residence. "I am not moving out. I have got a new house. It just coincidentally happened to be that - Dussehra, housewarming and this (engagement). I am definitely not moving out. My father and mother won't allow me too... and I don't want that to happen," said Neil.
Congratulations to Neil and
