The institution of marriage has often been questioned in an industry like our very own Bollywood. Well the reason isn’t just disloyalty or infidelity but what makes it more challenging is the acceptance of each other without having to forgo your own career. This seems to work out quite well with the men but the women are often seen taking a back seat in their careers after entering a separate household. Although our industry might have taken growth and development especially in terms of changing the mindset to an all new level but we still wonder that who will be comfortable seeing their wives romance other men onscreen?
But then again there are people who set new trends pulling people out of their old traditional mindsets. When we talk about women like Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai little can we debate about how much they had to sacrifice in the name of marriage? Both have set examples that exemplify balancing personal and professional lives. They have perfectly reflected that two people can live together happily whether or not both belong to the industry. Karisma Kapoor, Shilpa Shetty, Imran Khan, Fardeen Khan have all been happily married for years now. Touchwood! Drawing inspiration from these people who have gone all the way to live successful married lives we now see a chunk of celebrities exchanging vows with one another. The fad seems off taken off quite strongly. Here are a few you’d like to take notice of.
The much talked about wedding was the recent institution of Ritesh Deshmukh and Genelia D’souza. The two had been making noise for a while now and had declared that they would end up settling soon. The couple epitomises grace and charm; both equally well. Unparalleled is the joy of seeing two celebrities tying the knot. The masses go crazy looking out for the photos that soon get splashed all over the web space. They would in fact do anything for a glimpse especially if the couple to be married fall in their ‘idol’ list. The couple witnessed both a church wedding and a proper set of Indian traditional functions. Genelia decked up in a fairy tale like flawless quite gown with details that added to the beauty. She sparkled like a princess and who wouldn’t have fallen for her then? The bubbly girl was now a bride and the joy of being with the man of dreams wasn’t hidden from public view. The shine and glow said it all. Ritesh on the other hand is one of the most supportive counter parts one can witness. How he sailed through managing a Christian wedding while keeping his political background in mind and also arranging for traditional functions is indeed remarkable. The wedding of the couple was graced by the presence of many celebrities whether it is the Bachchan family or Amir Khan and Kiran Rao. Even Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor were seen mingling at the ceremonies. Indeed a blessed wedding which witnessed the presence of all most all stars one can possibly think of.
Recently engaged are the young couple of Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani. The businessman has transformed the life of the actress who had to always live up to the comparisons with the Dream Girl, her very own mother. But what can get better than hearing your own mom saying that the groom to be is a good looking fellow! Now that’s a compliment any daughter will love to get. In fact Hema is setting up all plans for the wedding. She has expressed that soon after Tell Me O Kkhuda releases and hits the screens, her daughter will be seen settling in her personal life. Unsure of the wedding dates as of now, she does make it quite clear that it would be brought to public knowledge once they have been fixed. One does get the indication that the wedding bells will ring soon. Fans can keenly await a yet another grand wedding. After all Dharmendra and Hema’s daughter cannot escape a grand wedding with multiple ceremonies and all the pomp and show. The celebrity circuit doesn’t give you those kinds of privileges, now does it? The engagement was held at Hema’s very own bungalow in Juhu which was open only to the kith and kin. Sr. Mrs. Bachchan was our Bollywood representative there. Simplicity rules the ceremony where we witnessed esha elegantly carry off a pink saree with traces of work in green. She adorned classic and sophisticated jewellery not having clad half her wardrobe. The groom looked enigmatic in a white coat with he teamed with evergreen black trousers. Esha was spellbound and thanked everyone for blessing her who she gives the credit for witnessing the grand day.
Not to forget, the last couple who are sky rocketing the list of celebrity couples who ended up with marriages is that of gorgeous Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan. The two have been together for many years now and the seriousness has surely grown past getting tattoos. The duo expresses with great delight that they have never been happier with anyone else and see each other as the perfect life partners. Kareena has completely mingled with Saif’s family and loves to spend time with his children. The queen bee does have a homely side to herself. Saif on the other hand hopes to discover a new side of life with Kareena by his side. While the couple has been contemplating on settling for a long time now, they also understand that this giant leap changes almost everything in life. Hence, they have always taken it slow and moved ahead step by step. Although sure enough now, they are excited to come together after the release of their upcoming film Agent Vinod. The two will be seen as leads in the movie and what is better than seeing real life couples bring it all together on screen in the reel life. May God bless the two!
