The long-awaited big fat wedding of Bollywood actor Imran Khan and his fiancee Avantika Malik are all set to take place today. The duo are going to have a sunset wedding on a beach in Phuket, Thailand.
The wedding will be hush hush kinds with only the families of the couple. Tuesday night will see the two families and their closest friends heading to Phuket for a three-day celebration. But mamu jaan Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao will not be present for the celebrations as they need to complete the pending work on their forthcoming film, Dhobi Ghat, which releases on January 21.
Says a source, “It’s Avantika’s idea and she has done all the bookings and logistic arrangements. While both sides helped put up all the parties, this Khao Lak trip is completely Avantika’s brainchild.”
Designers Shantanu and Nikhil Mehra, who are taking care of the couple’s wedding dress, revealed that they have designed a scarlet gown for the bride, as it would be a sunset wedding.
The Sangeet ceremony held at Avantika’s farmhouse in Karjat on Saturday night saw Imran’s maamu Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao. Aamir’s ex wife Reena also came. Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif too attended the sangeet though they came separately. Boman Irani, Kunal Kapoor, Shahana Goswami, Karan Johar, Minissha Lamba and many other celebrities graced the occasion.
