Bollywood beauty Shilpa Shetty has taken on the role of a lifetime– that of wife to the man she loves, Raj Kundra. On November 22, 2009, less than one month after the couple’s official engagement ceremony, the groom– dressed in a gold and scarlet sherwani by Shantanu and Nikhil– rode through the streets in a horse-drawn chariot toward the Bawa Villa in Khandala, where the 2007 Celebrity Big Brother winner waited to exchange wedding vows.
The joy of the couple’s November 21st sangeet, in which the groom danced to a Michael Jackson tune, spilled over onto the pair’s wedding day, when the bride donned a crimson and burgundy saree by designer Tarun Tahilani for the Manzalorean ceremony.
The newlyweds will once again share their happiness with family and friends at a reception in Mumbai on November 24, 2009.
