Mumbai: Although the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi were not able to participate in the wedding ceremony of Hema Malini’s daughter Esha Deol due to security reasons but she has invited the newly wed couple at her residence.
Malini told media that they had invited PM and Sonia Gandhi for the wedding but 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 legend actress said.
Actress Esha Deol Friday married businessman Bharat Takhtani in a traditional South Indian ceremony at the Hare Rama Hare Krishna temple in Juhu.
The ceremony saw the presence of creme da la creme from filmdom as well as politicians and businessmen.
Those present were Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan, Nita Ambani, Subrata Roy, Rani Mukerji, Anu Malik, Fardeen Khan, Vinod and Kavita Khanna and Vyjayanthi-mala (who specially flew down from Chennai to bless the couple).
Surprisingly, Esha’s half-brothers Bobby and Sunny Deol were conspicuous by their absence. Bobby is shooting in London while Sunny, who is in town, was also busy with a shoot. He had attended the engagement in February.
Abhay Deol, who is known to be close to Esha, was present at all the functions. Here’s a lowdown on the wedding.
