The internet pretty much broke again with the #arpitakhanwedding. Yes the sister you probably didn’t know Salman Khan had got married. Arpita Khan wed businessman-aspiring actor Aayush Sharma in a spectacular ceremony at Hyderabad’s Falaknuma Palace. Here are 10 reasons why we all LOVED the wedding
1 - Salman Khan aka Sallu Bhai!
Ah the playboy / bad boy of bollywood with a heart of gold. Yes hes the number one reason everyone went bananas over the wedding. The only thing that could have been bigger is if he was getting married. He’s one of hindi cinemas biggest stars yet comes across as a real family guy, who dots on his little sister and literally pulled out all the stops for the wedding. He may have several controversies under his belt, but his massive fan base continues to grow. Below a back in the day photo of a pre body building Salman with his little sister Arpita – awwww and tonnes of exclusive photos were shared via his instagram account
2 – The Designer Bride
Arpita as you can imagine, would have had some of the India’s best bridal designers on speed dial. She decided mainly on Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. The Sangeet saw her in a Sabyasachi Couture lehenga with a kundan necklace and statement earrings.
For the ceremony it was a red Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla lehenga with layered kundan necklace. Post Wedding saw more dress changes with a Falguni and Shane Peacock gown (below), another two Abu Jani lehenga’s one with multicolor gota work and the other a white crystal encrusted lehenga (below)
3 – The Khan Reunion
Ah its like Karan Arjun all over again, nothing like a wedding to bring feuds to an end. Yes Shah Rukh Khan dropped by to wish the bride to be. Of course you just need to think of something and someone will give you an internet meme. I have to say i did have a good chuckle …4- The Cake
When it comes to cakes there seems to be a trend of go big or go home. This 150kg of sweet confection took 7 people and almost 10days to make – the hand painted creation was made by pooja dhingra of le15.co.in5 – The Sister In law – Malaika “munni” Arora Khan As big bhabi she had to look her best, she selfied her way through the wedding in an array of outfits by Seema Khan, Sonaakshi Raaj & Arpita Mehta and not forgetting her blinged out Christian Louboutin. 6 – Katrina Kaif aka Coulda been a Khan Gonna be a Kapoor – Gets put on the spot Salman who is known for his cheeky antics, called Katrina on to the stage during the wedding fun to perform Chikni Chameli in the only way he knows how, supposedly he took the mic and said, “Katrina Kaif, your song is playing – please come on stage.” “Not Katrina Kaif – Katrina Kapoor, please come on stage.” once on stage salman took another cheeky swipe and joked “I gave you a chance to become Katrina Khan, but you chose to be Katrina Kapoor.” I think its kinda sweet they still have a fun relationship and she took it in good jest
7- The Jewllery
Pretty much all of the wedding party including the bride wore Satyani fine jewellery by Maheep Kapoor, Kundan, Diamonds, Polki were most popular plus jumkas, and chaand ballis in the ears. Along with statement necklaces. LOve!
8 – Instagram & Twitter
The one time we all love social media, thanks to the media sharing sites we got to see some real candid moments.
Yasmin Celebrity Trainer Karachiwala did what any self respecting instagrmer would do and that was to grab every celeb in sight for a quick photo. Bring on the selfies!!
9 – The Dancing
No bollywood film is complete with out a song and a dance, and a wedding is no diffrent – Salman Khan along with Katrina Kaif, Aamir Khan, Karan Johar, Salim Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan and Varun Dhawan just to mention a few were all bobbing along to the sounds of salmans greatest hits and latest including Kick song, Jumme Ki Raat, Dabangg title track and of course jeene ke hain chaar din with an amazingly long towel. The quality of the videos is not very good, but as with most guilty pleasure wholly enjoyable.
10- Priyanka Chopra Saves the Day!
Its a wedding its your right to get emotional and Aprita broke down during the wedding speech and couldn’t carry on, so bestie PC or CeePee as everyone seems to call her these days, came to the rescue as the bride was unable to speak, Arpita handed over a letter to Priyanka Chopra and asked her to read it out on her behalf.
“Arpita is afraid she might break down, so I am going to read out what she has to say… I am the luckiest girl to be brought up in a family like mine. Sohail bhai and I shared the same room until he got married — he’s like a friend to me. Arbaaz bhai is like my guide, he always told me what’s good and what’s bad. Salman bhai though, has the biggest heart. For him, I can do no wrong. Everything I did, he was there to support me.” Awww right
And that conduceds our litte countdown, till the next celeb wedding…
Just one other thing…
Now if there was to be number 11 it would be the star studded reception bash, but that a whole other blog post.
