Shah Rukh Khan’s brother-in-law Rustam Tiwari is all set to tie the knot with actor Shweta Varma on March 12 in the Capital. Tiwari, a 30-year-old Delhi-based entrepreneur, is SRK’s wife Gauri’s first cousin, while his fiancee Shweta made her debut in the film Hide and Seek in 2010.
Shweta’s second film, Bhindi Bazaar, co-starring actor Kay Kay Menon, is set to open a day prior to their wedding. “I am very excited and nervous at the same time both for the wedding and Shweta’s film,” says Tiwari, who will be wearing a rust-coloured sherwani on his big day. Shweta will wear a red lehenga with a touch of blue. Both the bride and the groom have been dating each other for the past eight years.
Tiwari, who grew up with Gauri Khan, explains the concept behind his wedding invitation, saying, “We didn’t want a regular wedding invite, and so we experimented with artist Anjana Kuthiala’s painting.” The painting, which is the cover of the card, shows a bride and a groom in very vibrant colours. “I came up with the idea after a lot of brainstorming with Rustam’s parents. I have even made a 4/3 feet replica of this painting, which I will present to the couple on the wedding,” says Kuthiala.
