The Bollywood icon Aishwarya Rai got married to fellow actor Abhishek Bachchan last Friday in a traditional marriage ceremony of Hindu religion. On the wedding ceremony the former Miss World wore a gold embroidered sari in red color. The Three-day long marriage ceremony was started on last Wednesday through the sangeet day. Regarding the marriage ceremony Hello magazine reported:
Dubbed the wedding of the century by the Indian media, the festivities had many of the elements of one of the couple's on-screen romances - riotous colour, dance routines and melodrama. The celebrations ran over three days and included a Sunday visit to the Tirupathi Ventakeswara temple in the south of the country, where the couple partook of prasad or blessed food.
Aishwarya, a former Miss World, was breathtaking on that occasion in a hand-embroidered red and gold sari, with vermilion powder in the parting of her hair, and a necklace of black and gold beads. Her 31-year-old groom was dressed in a loose white tunic over baggy trousers.
The traditional festivities had kicked off on Friday with a private marriage ceremony at the Bachan family home, where hundreds of well-wishers cheered the 31-year-old groom as he emerged astride a white stallion, his face covered by a veil of white flowers.
The couple is the current star of Bollywood. Guru, the only hit movie of this year yet, is the last movie for the couple where they appear together. The fans of Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan are now worried about the speculation of their long term absence in Bollywood. What do you think about it?
