Bride-to-be television and film actor Gauahar Khan, who is all set to marry fiance, choreographer Zaid Darbar on December 25, has been the talk of the town ever since the two announced their wedding and with the onset of their pre-wedding festivities which began on Monday.
Giving a glimpse of their ‘chiksa’ ceremony and treating their fans with some stunning photos, both Gauahar and Zaid shared snaps on their respective social media handles. However, several videos of the couple dancing their hearts out at the pre-wedding festivity have been going viral on the webspace.
Both fabulous dancers, Gauahar and Zaid are seen having a gala time as relatives surrounding the couple have a blast too.
For the festivities, while Gauahar was seen in a yellow lehenga designed by Maayera Jaipur, Zaid twined with his soon-to-be-wife in a yellow kurta and teamed it with white pyjamas and tinted glasses.
In the viral videos, we also got a glimpse of veteran singer-composer and Zaid’s father Ismail Darbar dancing and enjoy his son’s wedding festivities.
Take a look:
For the unversed, ‘chiksa’ is the Muslim marriage equivalent of the Haldi ceremony. The bride and groom wear yellow clothing in their respective homes and get smeared with a paste of turmeric and sandalwood in rosewater.
Earlier, sharing photos on her social media handle, Gauahar wrote, “When half of me met half of you and together the better halves shaped our beautiful moments. #Alhamdulillah Day 1 of #GaZa celebrations – Chiksa.”
A few days back, the couple had taken to their social media handles to share the digital wedding invitation card and captioned it ‘Jab We Met’ #GAZAbKaHaiDin.
The short and adorable animated video revealed everything about their ‘lockdown love story’ — how they met, proposed until the time they decided to marry each other. From quarantine drives to parking garages, texting, and video-calling, Gauhar and Zaid’s love story saw every aspect and then finally one day ‘when words failed, he sealed the deal with a song’.
