The silver screen’s dreamgirl Hema Malini had invited the politics’ dreamgirl Sonia Gandhi alongwith Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for her daughter Esha’s wedding with Bharat Takhtani at her residence. Despite the invite, the duo couldn’t turn up due to security reasons.
Talking about this, Hema said that she had invited PM and Sonia Gandhi for the wedding, but they couldn’t come for security reasons. She also added that if the wedding would have been in Delhi, they would have made it. And that it was a sweet gesture from Sonia Gandhi that she had sent Esha and Bharat an invite that whenever they are in Delhi, they should go to her ’10 Janpath’ residence for lunch or dinner.
Even though the two political bigwigs were absent at the wedding, there were other politicians who attended the grand wedding at Iskcon Temple in Juhu, last week. They included Raj Purohit (Mumbai Chief- BJP), Party president Nitin Gadkari, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi (National Vice President) alongwith some of the top notch BJP leaders. While the reception had other bigwigs including L.K. Advani, Sushma Swaraj
Amar Singh, Raj Thackeray and others.
On the Bollywood front, there was Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji, Ramesh Sippy, Jeetendra, Tusshar Kapoor, Kajol, Fardeen Khan, Vidya Balan amongst others. Abhay Deol, who is known to be close to Esha, was present at all the functions.
