Believe it or not, even with the highlight of a wedding being superstar Shah Rukh Khan, it all started on time. SRK was in the Capital to attend wife Gauri’s first cousin Rustom Tiwari’s wedding to actor Shweta Varma, on Saturday night.
Held at Parkland Retreat, Chhattarpur, the wedding saw Gauri, dressed up in an emerald green sari with a heavy gold neckpiece, shaking a leg at the baraat. SRK sat in a BMW, before gracing the shaadi in a black, three-piece suit. About 350 guests attended the ceremony.
The star couple occupied a space near the mandap, specially designed for them, sealed by a chain of private bodyguards. “We were asked to make an enclosure near the mandap so that he (SRK) could watch the ceremony away from the public eye,” said a source from the hotel. SRK, Gauri and daughter Suhana also posed for photo ops with the bride and groom. However, son Aryan kept to himself. “Not my picture,” said a shy Aryan, when we tried clicking him. He was even miffed with his dad for making him pose for a family photo.
SRK later retired to his room to catch the India-South Africa world cup match. Also seen at the wedding were SRK’s friend Sanjay and Shalini Passi, politician Jagdish Tytler and artist Subodh Gupta. Actor Arjun Rampal made an entry post-midnight, straight to SRKs room.
