Mom - to - be Esha Deol is all set to marry again, with none other than her husband Bharat Takhtani. This time Esha will be doing three rounds instead of the traditional seven pheras.
According to Pune Mirror, these expectant parents will tie the knot again on 24 August. Both will be following the Sindhi ritual of the ‘Godh Bharai’ ceremony or baby shower.
Fashion designer Neeta Lulla is going to design the outfit for the bride and the groom. Neeta has a long association with Esha and her legendary veteran actress mother Hema Malini - earlier she designed the former’s wedding dress and being a Sindhi herself she will understand the rituals involved.
Last time when Esha tied the knot on June 29, 2012, Hema called a priest from Tirupati and because he spoke only Tamil, no one from her family or friends had understood anything. “This time it’s a Sindhi priest who speaks Hindi too, so my in-laws will at least understand what is being said,” she told Pune Mirror.
The baby shower will follow the mehendi ceremony where the women sing and dance to folk songs and engage in playful banter. Although the whole ceremony will be witnessed by only close friends and relatives, a special chhappan bhog for Lord Krishna has been organised and guests will be served a ‘satvik’ lunch after the ritual.
Talking about her bond with her husband Esha said, "Over the last five years, Bharat and I have become as thick as thieves. Since I'm pregnant, I'm prone to mood swings now but he's tolerated them and is extremely protective. He's also my best critic, encouraging me in everything I do. At the risk of sounding filmy, I'll say I wouldn't want to change anything, life's beautiful".
