Neil Nitin Mukesh, Rukmini Sahay's wedding celebrations kick off: See their invite
When actor Neil Nitin Mukesh announced his engagement to Mumbai-based Rukmini Sahay, the arranged match was quite the subject of interest.
Now, Neil Nitin and Rukmini are all set to tie the knot on 9 February in an upscale hotel in Udaipur, Rajasthan. Just like the place, the wedding will be nothing short of royal and classy. The wedding invitation the Mukesh family has shared with their guests is a testimony to that.
The cover of the card flaunts an elegant and minutely designed emblem with an NR logo, depicting the initials of the groom and the bride. The wedding invitation is quite elaborate as the wedding festivities invites are preceded by a foreword from Neil's father Mukesh.
Interestingly, every foreword is derived from Mukesh's memorable songs, For example, the first function is the engagement on 7 February. It is introduced by verses from Anand. The mehendi and sangeet ceremonies will take place on 8 February. They have been preceded by lyrics of Himalaya Ki God Mein. The fourth function, the wedding ceremony, features a stanza from Jal Bin Machhli Nritya Bin. These functions, including a cocktail party on the last day, are scheduled to take place in Udaipur from 7 to 9 February. They are family-only events and will see about 500 guests.
The wedding reception will be held on 17 February in a high-profile hotel in Juhu, Mumbai. The invitation to the reception has been introduced by a song from Kabhi Kabhi, which serves as the icing on the wedding cake.
The wedding invitation card has been distributed along with a box of chocolate walnut brownies with a semi-precious coin embossed on every box. As per Neil, his parents are behind the entire concept of the wedding invitation and they decided to keep it old-school, just the way the groom likes it.
