Clad in a red sari and flaunting diamonds and emeralds, Bollywood Actress Shilpa Shetty exchanged wedding vows with London-based businessman Raj Kundra in a close-knit family affair in Khandala. Wearing a red sari designed by Tarun Tahiliani, the 34-year-old exchanged vows with Kundra as per the Bunt tradition, according to the Mangalorean community that the Shettys belong to.
The groom was sporting a maroon sherwani with golden embroidery and a turban with his face veiled by a sehra (string of pearls). He was also holding a sword in his hand, as per Indian tradition.
Sunday’s wedding was the climax of the two-day festivities that included a sangeet ceremony on Saturday night. Shilpa’s sister, actress Shamita who was participating in the third edition of Bigg Boss, withdrew voluntarily from the show to attend the wedding.
Kundra left Amrit Villa, located about five minutes away from Bawa Villa, where the wedding was held, in a two-horse chariot.The buzz around the marriage started early this year and had been steadily getting louder even though Shilpa Shetty denied it officially before getting engaged to Kundra late October.
Photographers & papparazis scrambled to feed their cameras at the goings-on while curious star-gazers were kept at bay by both private and police security.
