June 29 was a very special day for legendary stars Dharmendra and HemaMalinias their eldest daughter, EshaDeol, was bonded in holy matrimony to Bharat Takhtani. The ceremony matched perfectly with the people involved – glamorous, beautiful and opulent. The doting parents sent out wedding invitations accompanied by boxes of laddoos bursting with nuts. The weeklong ceremony culminated in an elegant wedding at the Iskcon Temple in Mumbai, followed by a grand reception at a five star hotel in the city. The days prior to the wedding were filled withlively events like the Mehndi and Sangeet ceremonies.
The credit for Esha, Bharat’s, Aahna, and HemaMalini’s beautiful outfits goes to NeetaLulla, a celebrated Bollywood designer. She truly worked her magic on the grand Kanchivaramsareethat was specially ordered from Chennai for the bride. HemaMalini looked stunning, as usual, in her own toned down Kanchivaramsaree that she wore with a heavily embroidered blouse and traditional gold jewelry. Aahna held her own amidst the glam exuded by her mother and sister. She looked sweet and very much like a younger version of HemaMalini.Esha was dolled up in a gorgeous dress designed by the same Sindhi designer. The groom looked dapper in a traditional beige sherwani.
The wedding was held at theIskon temple, and it was a simple affair with just close family and friends in attendance. The reception was the exact opposite, and the grandeur was stunning. Equally stunning were sweethearts and newlyweds,Esha and Bharat Takhtani. Esha wore a pink lehnga studded with Swaroski crystals designed by Rocky S, and Bharat matched her beauty in a dark suit, designed by Simone Khambatta. HemaMalini stole the show at the reception dressed in a silver and soft white lenhgasaree, whileDharmendra played the perfect host. Aahna, the baby of the Deol family, looked very pretty in a bright pink traditional lehnga.
Apart from the beautiful costumes, colors and glitter, what really shone through all the ceremonies was the lovely warm bond that Esha and Bharat Takhtani share. The groom seemed very proud of his wife as he called her his “princess for life.” Bharat also said that he was looking forward to a great life ahead with the most wondrous life partner. The bride was definitely blushing crimson.
HemaMalini and Dharmendraelegantly managed everything during the wedding ensuring the day would be perfect for Esha. The wedding went off without a hitch and will remain one of the most talked about celebrations of the year.
