Manish talks about Parineeti's special lehenga
Sharing the photos he wrote, "Some details make all the difference. I distinctly remember discussing the lehenga design with @parineetichopra (two hearts emoji), who mentioned adding her Nani (grandmother)'s challa (traditional keychain) to it! She wanted to pay a heartfelt tribute to her nani, who used to wear the same challa in her saree with the keys, a symbol of being the lady of the house."
He also wrote, "For Parineeti, the sound of the challa when her nani walked around the house, was a melody of strength and grace. And that's when I knew we had to add that piece of legacy to her lehenga. Of course, we added more elements that were significant to both Raghav and Parineeti like London, music, Khanda Sahib and more. It was not just an accessory... but a piece of her that Parineeti would have on her special day. #parineetichopra #love." Reacting to the post, Parineeti wrote, "I love you M. There is no one like you (two heart emoji)."
