JALANDHAR (TIP): The big fat Punjabi wedding celebrations of Geeta Basra and Harbhajan Singh culminated in their Anand Karaj ceremony on October 29 morning at a gurudwara in Phagwara, near Jalandhar.
But before the bride and groom tied the knot, there was no dearth of celebratory events and festive moments at the traditional ceremonies held in the run up to the wedding ceremony. After a fairy-tale mehendi on Monday, which was gatecrashed by Bhajji, the couple spent some time dancing with friends, family and star guests at the sangeet. Mika Singh and Gurdas Maan were the entertainers of the evening, and actor/comedian Gurpreet Ghuggi made an appearance too. Some of Bhajji’s cricketer friends, including Parthiv Patel and RP Singh, joined in. The evening also saw the couple exchange rings, and make a Bollywood-style performance too.
Wednesday night was all about the jago ceremony, an integral part of Punjabi marriage rituals. Bhajji’s sisters, mother and other relatives carried a decorated ghara and did some giddha, taking a round of the locality. “There was lot of halla gulla and dholis were called,” a source said. Bhajji wore a green Pathani suit for the occasion. After the jago ceremony, a special dinner was organized.Cricketers Sarandeep Singh and Rahul Sharma were present too.
To maintain privacy, the cricketer’s house in a posh locality in Jalandhar was cordoned off. His wedding card has a special entry pass. On the jago evening, bouncers were given special T-shirts with Harbhajan and Geeta written on them. “The bouncers’ uniforms are being altered for each occasion,” the source said.
Geeta and her relatives have been putting up at a resort, where the choora chadai ceremony took place and golden kaliren were attached to the bride’s bangles. Source: TOI
