B town is all set for another starry wedding. After all the hullabaloo about the Abhi - Ash wedding almost two months back and the rumours of the Aditya-Rani Mukherjee engagement recently, comes the news that the actress daughter of actor-politician's Raj Babbar, Juhi Babbar is getting hitched. The actress who is known for her associated with her mother Nadira Zaheer Babbar's theatre group 'Ekjute' will be getting married to long-time boyfriend, filmmaker Bijoy Nambiar, on June 27.
"The wedding will be a grand affair and will be attended by a number of bigwigs from the political and Bollywood circles. The wedding festivities began with a special lunch party hosted by the Nambiar family on June 24 followed by a sangeet ceremony and a mehndi function on June 26", informs a source close to the Babbar family.
"The wedding function on June 27 will see a South Indian wedding in the morning, followed by 'saat pheras' being taken according to North Indian customs the same evening. The couple will fly down to Bijoy's hometown in Kerala for the wedding reception soon after", adds the source.
The guest list will also include, among others, some Delhi celebs like beauty expert Samantha Kocchar and Ramneek Paintal. The groom to be is said to have met Juhi during the making of his silent short film 'Reflections' that starred her and Mohanlal and the pair has been seeing each other since then.
Owing to a failed career in Bollywood (her debut 'Kaash Aap Humaare Hote' was a damp squib and she starred in B grade films like 'Unns' later), Juhi's wedding is not likely to attract as much attention as Abhiash's. Success might have eluded her in Bollywood but hopefully maritial bliss will get her the joy that her career didn't.
