Shilpa ties knot with Raj Kundra

22 11 2009

In one of the most awaited weddings of tinseltown, the actress tied the knot with London-based businessman Raj Kundra in a lavish ceremony in Khandala today.

The 34-year-old actress wed in a traditional Mangalorean ceremony at businesswoman Kiran Bawa’s villa in Khandala, 100 kms from here, in the presence of close friends and family.

The actress who shot to international fame with her stint in UK reality show ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ did not invite many of her Bollywood associates with only Sunny Deol, Suneil Shetty, Jackky Bhagnani and Vasu Bhagnani attending the private ceremony which was out of bounds for the media.

The bride wore a burgundy and red saree, embellished with Swarovsky crystals, designed by Tarun Tahiliani while 33-year-old Kundra, who arrived at the wedding venue in a horse-drawn chariot, was dressed in a maroon and gold sherwani designed by Shantanu and Nikhil.

The marriage combined the rituals of the Mangalorean bride and the Punjabi groom with the vows being exchanged according to South Indian tradition while pre-wedding rituals like ‘Mehendi’ and ‘Sangeet’ conducted as per Punjabi tradition.

The groom was welcomed by Shilpa’s parents and her sister Shamita Shetty, who recently left the ‘Bigg Boss’ house to attend the wedding.

It is Shetty’s first wedding while Kundra was previously married and has a young daughter.
