A source informs, "The engagement ceremony will be a simple and private one held at Raj's 7th floor flat in Juhu. It's very hush-hush and only close family and friends will attend. Shilpa and her family have decided to go ahead with engagement date after much deliberation and consultation with family astrologers, including her mother Sunanda."
Understandably, Shilpa was reluctant to have the ceremony in the absence of her sister Shamita who is currently holed up at the Bigg Boss house. "Shilpa was keen that Shamita too be a part of such a special event in her life but the time is extremely auspicious. Finally, she gave in to the pressure." Shilpa's engagement outfit is a Manish Malhotra designed saree and choli in soft onion pink chiffon reflecting Shilpa's personality.
Says a source, "The saree is simple with no embellishments like crystals or zari work, but a thin gold border. The choli is vintage and in different shades of gold with gold tassels. The saree has been deliberately kept simple as Shilpa will be wearing heavy rubies, diamonds and emeralds in ornaments designed by Anmol Jewellers."
