Abhi-Aish wedding preparations in last stages

With the wedding date just round the corner, the Abhi – Aish wedding preparations have reached the final stages. Bachchan villas, Prateeksha and Jalsa are both sporting a new look from outside and are lit up in the evenings.

 
 
 
 

Since last two days, every evening, high profile guests are being seen arriving at the Bachchan houses and the paparazzi following every single move of who is coming out and going in.

Tonight – Sangeet
Tonight is the Sangeet ceremony, and Aishwarya Rai was seen leaving her house at 4 PM for Prateeksha. Our source informs, “It is going to be one long night full of dhamaal and masti with many specially choreographed performances lined up and Amitabh and Jaya also joining the youngsters in the dance performances. Abhi and Aish’s actor friends have been divided into two groups, of gals and guys team. Karan Johar has set up the guys’ dance pieces and Kirron Kher the gals’.”

Food Service
The catering service for the wedding functions is being provided by the Taj Group and one can see the food items for tonight’s party being unloaded and taken into Jalsa.

Tight Security
There is a special police bandobast in front of both Prateeksha and Jalsa and the roads in front of them shall be closed for traffic. To keep the large number of fans thronging to the venues from tonight onwards, at bay, special security forces have been deployed. Big B’s good friend Subroto Roy has also got in security team from Amby Valley and it is stationed at both Bachchan and Rai houses. Mumbai Police Commissioner D.N.Jadhav was seen paying a visit to Jalsa last evening. It was followed by a tussle between the media guys and security men outside it. This further lead to a traffic jam on the busy street and Amitabh’s special friend Amar Singh was seen stuck in it. Amongst other guests seen arriving at Jalsa last night was Bachchan’s old friend, filmmaker Romesh Sharma along with his family.

Bachchan house, Prateeksha for two decades never had its name written anywhere on its walls but now one can see it specially designed and put up on its front walls.

At the Sangeet

It was Aishwarya’s family members and the ladies team who danced first at the Sangeet function followed by Bachchan family members and the guys team comprising of Abhishek’s pals. With Bollywood hit numbers such both old and new played nonstop without a break, it was one long night full of dhamaal at Prateeksha that ended close to 5 AM in the morning.

 

 

 

 

 

The actual song dance routine began around 10:30 PM. From the sangeet ceremony, one could hear songs that ranged from old hits remixed to latest numbers. Big B’s yesteryear hit Dekha Na Hai Re Socha, Abhishek’s Bunty Aur Babli number, Nach Baliye, Aish’s ex, Sallu’s hit dance number from Salaam-e-Ishq – Tennu Leke, Big B and Abhishek’s number from Kabhi Alvida Naa KehnaRock N Roll Soniye were few of the songs one could hear being danced to inside. One could hear a loud cheer to the KANK dance number as it was being played.

Arbaaz Khan pissed
Arbaaz Khan was pissed off by television journalists trying to get info from him confirming brother Salman’s presence at the Sangeet ceremony. On contacting he told us, “I think these guys are bankrupt for news and desperate for sensationalism but sorry to disappoint them, bhai (Sallu) is in Dubai.” Rumours were flowing all day today that Salman was supposed to make a surprise guest entry at function. In fact whenever any Land Cruiser stopped at the gates of Prateeksha a few ethusiasts would start shouting ‘its Salman’ and the entire media circus would try to zoom in desperately only to realise it was a hoax.

The Guest List
A special grand set had been erected inside the Prateeksha premises by ace art director of Bollywood films, Nitin Desai. Aishwarya arrived at the venue at around 5 PM. Every guest coming in was received at the gate with a security guy who would take a chip given to them with the invitation and he would zip it and then guests would go in. Parking arrangements were made at the back side towards the 10 th road. Big B’s close pal, Sahara chief Subroto Roy was the first big guest to arrive at 8 PM in the evening. He was followed by Abhishek’s mates, Karan Johar, Uday Chopra, filmmakers – Apoorva Lakhia, Rohan Sippy, Shaad Ali, Sikander Kher (with mom Kirron) and Goldie Behl with his actress wife Sonali Bendre. Shiv Sena chief Bal Thakre’s daughter in law, son Uddhav’s wife, Rashmi Thakre had come in with her elder son. Kajol had come in with hubby Ajay Devgan and sister Tanisha. Ram Gopal Varma, Yash Chopra with wife Pamela and Aishwarya’s building neighbour, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar’s wife Anjali with children were also seen arriving. Sanjay Dutt came in with Suneil Shetty. Amongst industry seniors, Danny, Prem Chopra, Abhi’s debut film director J.P. Dutta, Kapoor family members – Shammi Kapoor with wife, Rajiv with mom Krishna Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor with wife Neetu Singh were also present. Music Director – Singer Shankar Mahadevan and Ash’s film Jodhaa Akbar director Ashutosh Gowariker came in around 10:30 PM. Amongst actresses not many were present, only big name who arrived apart from Kajol was Preity Zinta. Every single guest’s arrival in their swanky cars would create a chaos amongst the paparazzi as they would try to capture them in their cameras.

Thaggu Ke Laddoo
Kanpur’s famous laddoo wala, Thaggu of the Thaggu Ke Laddoo fame had brought in a huge number of boxes full of laddoos specially made for the occasion to gift them to the wedding couple. Abhishek had shot at a sequence of his film, Bunty Aur Babli at his shop and after his interactions with Thaggu had even started addressing him as ‘Mama‘. Thaggu Mama had therefore out of affection brought in the laddoos but he was denied entry inside the Prateeksha gates and both Big B and Abhishek refused to meet him or take his gift. But the enthusiastic Thaggu Mama then distributed the yummy laddoos amongst the policemen, the media guys and the crowd present outside Prateeksha.

Sigh of relief for cops
One of the top cops stationed outside Prateeksha told us as the long night was coming to an end, “This was like a dress rehearsal for us before the actual wedding day on 20th when a much bigger guest list is scheduled to come for the wedding and a larger crowd is expected to come outside the wedding venue. Thankfully everything happened as per planning today and there were no scuffles with the media as well as the over enthusiastic mob present outside.”

Aaj Ki Raat
Today is the mehendi ceremony scheduled from 4:30 PM onwards in Aish’s building premises, Le Mer, in Bandra. A 25 feet huge tent has been erected with colourful drapery. Inside the tent, a stage in has been erected in the centre with a huge chandelier hanging on top. Specially ordered mehendi has already arrived from Sogat.
