That just about sets the tone for the elaborate yet exclusive Shilpa-Raj Kundra marriage on November 22 where according to Shilpa"s close buddy, “Tarun Tihiliani has designed a wedding outfit that no bride in Bollywood or outside has ever worn before."
The guest list for the November 22 wedding is restricted to Shilpa and Raj"s family only. Raj"s parents and sister are expected any moment from London. His relatives from Ludhiana and Amritsar are expected to arrive closer to the wedding.
The wedding will be conducted fully in the Bunt tradition, according the Mangalorean community that the Shettys belong to.
Says Shilpa"s close friend, “Shilpa"s mom consulted the astrological documents and found that the next auspicious date was not before April 2010. Shilpa"s first response was, 'Not without my sister." But now that Shamita is well on the way out of Bigg Boss, Shilpa doesn"t mind the rush, though she would be shooting until the very last moment for the Indo-Chinese production Desire in Hyderabad."
The last thing Shilpa wants to do at the moment is to work. “But a commitment is a commitment," says Shilpa"s friend.
Instead of the traditional ghoda bringing the dulha to Shilpa Shetty"s doorsteps, Raj Kundra has decided to ride into his beghum"s baraat on an elaborate chariot.
