Television actors Ruhi Chaturvedi and Shivendraa get married in Jaipur
Finally, D-day arrived for TV actors Ruhi Chaturvedi and Shivendraa Om Sainiyol as the two tied the knot in Jaipur on Monday. Ruhi, best known for playing Sherlyn Khurrana in Kundali Bhagya, comes from Mukundgarh in Rajasthan. But the two decided to have a traditional Marwari ceremony in Jaipur as Shivendraa’s parents and family are based here.
The pre-wedding rituals started a couple of days ahead – the engagement ceremony was held on November 30 while Mehendi took place on December 1. Many B-Town celebs, including Supriya Shukla, Sanjay Gagnani, Abhishek Kapur, Shraddha Arya and Anjum Fakih, reached Jaipur to attend the wedding ceremony.
I am old school and have deep faith in rituals and ceremonies
Juggling between getting ready for the haldi ceremony and attending congratulatory phone calls at a suburban hotel on the outskirts of the city, an excited Ruhi shared with us, “Finally the day has come and I’m very happy. Half of my Kundali Bhagya team has already reached here to be a part of the big celebration.” Despite her busy schedule, Ruhi made sure that she did not miss out on any activity. From attending to her guests to giving instructions for the arrangements required to even selecting clothes for her would-be husband, Ruhi made sure she took care of all the aspects.“Since I come from a Marwari family, I am ensuring that all the wedding rituals are followed properly. I am old school and I have deep faith in rituals and ceremonies. In fact, when it came to colour coordination of my wedding trousseau with Shivendraa’s, I did not let him see my lehenga. There is a belief that the groom should not see his bride’s lehenga before the wedding, so the poor guy had no choice but to wear what I chose for him,” Ruhi said.
