Actor Parineeti Chopra and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Raghav Chadha will marry in Udaipur today. The guest list for the wedding is heavy on politicians – Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab chief minister Bhagwant Mann are in Udaipur for the wedding. The Bollywood guest list is relatively short – the bride’s cousin Priyanka Chopra has not put in an appearance and nor is Parineeti’s co-star Akshay Kumar expected. Karan Johar will arrive today as will Manish Malhotra who has designed Parineeti’s wedding looks. The wedding venue is the Leela Palace hotel where most guests are also staying. The baraat will go by boat from the iconic Lake Palace to the Leela Palace. Boats are the mode of transport across Lake Pichola and guests have been spotted being ferried to their hotels the last two days. The bride and groom arrived on Friday to a grand welcome at the airport which was decorated for the ladkiwale, baraatis and guests. A mehendi was held on Friday evening. Yesterday, a haldi ceremony was held in the morning followed by a welcome lunch and then a 90s-themed sangeet at night. Pre-wedding festivities began last week in New Delhi. An ardas was held at Raghav’s residence followed by a Sufi night at which the guest list included cricketer Harbhajan Singh. Parineeti Chopra and Raghav Chadha got engaged in New Delhi in May. Priyanka flew from Los Angeles to attend.
