This month’s first blind item from Rajeev Masand is here and it’s no big guess on this one, everyone will be able to guess who once they read it. The thing is before reading this blind I was also wondering why this couple wanted the biggest occasion of their life to be a hush-hush affair, when everything else they do is highly publicized. Now I know why.
Subtlety Does It
There’s no end to the speculation and interest in the impending marriage of these two stars, but dates have repeatedly been moved, and neither seems particularly excited about sharing too much by way of detail. It appears now the big day has been scheduled for October. It’ll be a registered court marriage in Mumbai, followed by a reception in New Delhi.
Friends of the bride, a top actress, are a little surprised that the two have chosen to play it so low key, but the groom’s mother has revealed to close family that the bride has requested a relatively quiet affair because she’d be uncomfortable with a big song-and-dance being made of her wedding at a time when her own sister is going through a messy divorce. The groom too has reportedly told his mum he’d be happier with relatively modest celebrations, given that it’s his second time down the aisle.
Turns out the groom’s family is also currently involved in a bitter property dispute over his recently deceased father’s assets. The actor, his siblings, and his mother are apparently fighting off claims on his father’s wealth by assorted ‘relatives’ who have “suddenly appeared out of nowhere”. This is another reason the actor has cited for why he feels so uncomfortable about too much noise being made over his marriage.
