A couple of months ago, Arpita got married to Aayush who is Anil Sharma, cabinet minister's son. The couple dated for 2 years before they decided to take the plunge into matrimony.
It's been 6 months since the couple got married and they seem to be more in love than they ever were. They finished their three week honeymoon trip, a bonding trip to Kashmir for Salman and even a Mumbai trip to be there during the hit and run case verdict, before they decided to head back to Himachal Pradesh for a reception ceremony.
The arrangements have already been made, SP Mohit Chawla said, "We have all necessary arrangements already in place as the event is going to attract a huge crowd. Since it being a private affair,the police have nothing to do except taking care of law and order or traffic mobility on Kullu-Manali National Highway due to tourists season."
Salman is said to be the guest of honour and therefore he took a helicopter ride to the city to attend his baby sister's reception.
