The hype on social media around Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s wedding finally subsided when the couple tied the knot yesterday at their Bandra home, Vastu in the presence of friends and family.
The couple came out as a gush of fresh air as they decided on an ivory-gold-themed wedding. While Alia’s organza saree was a pleasant surprise, Ranbir also looked dapper in his sherwani.
The infinity, or number ‘8’ sign mangalsutra, butterflies on Alia’s blouse, birds, stars, and clouds on her kalera, were some personal touches the minimalist bride added to her ensemble.
But what’s more surprising is that instead of taking the ‘7 pheras’ (sacred vows), traditionally performed during a Hindu wedding, the couple took only ‘4 pheras’, said Alia Bhatt’s brother Rahul Bhatt.
Giving us an insight into the wedding ceremony, Rahul said, “Interestingly, there were not seven but four pheras at the wedding,” Hindustan Times quoted him saying.
“They had a special pandit. I was instrumental in a ceremony where brothers were needed. The pandit has been with the Kapoors for many years now. So he explained the significance of each phera. Ek hota hain dharm ke liye, ek hota hain santaan ke liye (One is for faith and one os o, so it was really fascinating. We have not been exposed to this. I come from a household of multiple ethnicities. So, that was fascinating. There were not 7 pheras but 4 pheras for the record. And I was during all the 4 pheras.”
Taking to social media, Alia wrote that she loved marrying in their favourite spot, the balcony, where they have spent the last 5 years of their relationship.
