Yuvraj Singh visits Parliament to invite PM Modi for his wedding


Cricketer Yuvraj Singh is all set to tie the knot with model-actress Hazel Keech, visited the Parliament on Thursday to invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other dignitaries for his wedding. He was accompanied by his mother Shabnam, and was spotted with an invitation card and a box of sweets.

The couple will get married in a traditional gurdwara ceremony Yuvraj’s hometown in Chandigarh on November 30. It will be followed by another wedding as per Hindu rituals in Goa on December 2. A grand reception will be held at a Delhi hotel on December 7. The grand reception will see famous personalities from the world of cricket, Bollywood and politics.

Yuvraj and the ‘Bodyguard’ actress had got engaged in a private ceremony in November last year during their vacation in Bali, Indonesia.

Meanwhile, the demonetisation drive has affected the weddings of ordinary citizens, and to reduce the impact, the Reserve Bank of India has announced that people can withdraw cash up to Rs 2.5 lakh from banks on producing wedding card and copies of advance payments made for booking marriage halls and caterers etc.

When Yuvraj was asked about it, the cricketer steered clear of controversy, saying he wasn’t there to politicise the issue. “I came here (Parliament) to invite the Prime Minister. The PM said that he will visit if he is free. Change can be seen as the money comes in. I am not here to politicise the issue,” he was quoted as saying.
