Guests under an unwritten oath of secrecy for Abhi-Ash wedding

As Mumbai gears up for the wedding on April 14, some more invitees are being included in the guests’ list, this time from the bride’s side. The 16-page wedding card issued along with a box of cookies/chocolates, is now being sent off to the bride’s filmmaker-friends along with a personal request from the bride-to-be, her mother, or her secretary. The marriage is still expected to be a very private affair. Those who have been invited have been sworn to secrecy about the details regarding the wedding schedule and also about the contents and look of the wedding card, the dress code, etc. Habitually gregarious friends of the Bachchans such as Karan Johar and Apoorva Lakhia have gone into a shell, pretending to be immersed in their shootings to avoid talking about the wedding. Says an invitee, “The fact is, every guest is under an unwritten oath of secrecy. We aren’t even allowed to talk about the wedding among ourselves. I’m not even discussing it with my wife. We’re being offered money by sections of the media to divulge details. One newspaper which wanted to print the wedding card even offered me the equivalent of what I make for five days of shooting. I naturally refused.” In the absence of any information from the Bachchans’ residence the media is being fed with utterly false tidbits about the actual events to take place during the wedding. Says one of the invitees, “The guest list keeps getting bigger every day in the papers. Many of the names are planted by those who aren’t invited.”
