Katrina and Vicky
She is the paragon of beauty; a superstar; and the central attraction of many films. He is a super-talented actor who started showing his talent and acting prowess from the early years of his acting career. They fell for each other and decided to tie the knot, but kept the media and their millions of fans out of this very intimate and personal decision. This silence by both Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal about their relationship made everyone in Bollywood think up thousands of speculations, wondering … ‘Is it true?’ ‘Will it happen?’
The buzz had been around for a long time. Probable dates; venues; plans – everything was being discussed. However, no confirmation came from the bride or the groom till the crescendo culminated in crisis and the first pic was posted on the social media handles of the bride and groom. It was a fairytale wedding held on December 9, 2021 at Six Senses Fort Barwara in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan – a perfect destination for their regal wedding ceremony following the traditional Punjabi rituals of the Punjabi groom Vicky.
The ceremony was held among the family members of the bride and groom along with a plethora of stars from Bollywood. Paparazzi and the media, however, were banned. Pictures were posted only after the marriage was solemnized. Katrina, being a British citizen, followed the Indian wedding rituals with the utmost dedication and solemnity. There were pre-wedding ceremonies of Mehndi and Haldi; and they held a full Punjabi wedding.
However, they added personal and innovative touches to the ceremonies. Katrina dressed in a multi-coloured lehenga for Mehndi; and both she and Vicky chose to wear white attire instead of yellow for Haldi. The lovebirds splashed Mehndi on each other, joined – with cheerful and energetic participation – by family members and friends. The chadar was floral made of mogra and baby’s breath. Instead of being accompanied by her brothers, Katrina chose to enter the wedding venue with her six sisters, whom she termed her ‘pillars of strength’. It was a beautiful sight – and it was a great decision signifying women empowerment!
