Vivek Oberoi-Priyanka Alva's wedding on October 29 was a grand affair, following every detail of a Hindu marriage. And while the Oberois had come fully prepared, hardly did the groom expect that he would land up in trouble.
Yes, Vivek Oberoi had to shell out lakhs before entering the 'mandap". The groom"s shoes, as is a custom in traditional Hindu weddings, were snatched away by his sisters-in-law, who demanded a sum of Rs.25 lakh before handing over his shoe.
However, all of this was just in pure jest. Following the customs in a Hindu marriage, the sisters-in-law usually play strange and playful tricks with the groom with the intention of taking him unawares. But little did Vivek Oberoi expect that his saalis would also play such a trick on him. Reports claim that the groom was not even armed with so much money, and so the bride"s sister had to settle for a lesser amount than initially demanded.
A source at the wedding venue revealed that Vivek Oberoi's wedding was fun, what with all the mischievous games that his sisters-in-law engaged in.
