The much awaited wedding of the year just took place! Oh yes, lovebirds Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge finally got hitched.

Talking about the marriage ceremony, a source told a tabloid, ” It’s an intimate, homely affair. Other than their family members, Zaheer’s close cricketer friends like Yuvraj Singh, Ashish Nehra and Ajit Agarkar are also expected to be present. After the marriage, there will be a cocktail party at a five star hotel in the evening. The mehendi ceremony will take place on Sunday, followed by a grand reception on Monday evening.”
Zaheer opted for ethnic and looked dapper in a white and golden kurta set, whereas natural beauty Sagarika was a gorgeous bride as she donned an elegant orange sari and teamed it up with a classy maroon blouse with intricate zardosi work on it. She chose a stunning neckpiece and matching earrings to complete the look. And must say, that’s a indeed a jaw-dropping neckpiece! We LOVE IT! The little bindi and neatly tied hair bun added charm to her bridal look. Have a look at the first pictures of the newly-weds, shared by their friend, Anjana Sharma.
Yesterday, Sagarika’s Chak De! India co-star Vidya Malavade attended visited the bride and shared a glimpse of what the ‘mad bride’ was up to. She shared a picture of the bride-to-be Sagarika decked up in jewellery – apparently confused which one to pick.
Sagarika had earlier shared a glimpse of her wedding reception’s card on Instagram live. While prepping up for the wedding, she told news agency IANS, ” “Like everybody who is getting married, I think there is always stress, yet there is a lot of excitement because it’s a wedding that you are planning. So, we have all those emotions going on right now.”
Zaheer and Sagarika have been dating from quite a time now. They both met through a common friends and liked each other instantly. In an interview, she had earlier said, ” “I always knew he was a good guy. Whenever I met this common friend of ours called Ritik, I would always tell him that Zaheer seems like a good guy. He knew that I never talk about anyone like that, so there was probably something more to this. What I liked about him the most was his humility. Despite achieving so much in life, he is grounded. That is one quality in him that I truly I admire. Sometimes I fly, but he is grounded.”
Awww! That’s just so cute of you both! Wish you both a blissful married life, Zaheer and Sagarika. We can’t wait for the photos from the grand reception already!
