Bollywood actress Sagarika Ghatge and cricketer Zaheer Khan who announced their relationship on Instagram last month, finally exchanged rings yesterday in a grand ceremony in Mumbai.
On Tuesday, the couple had cricketers as well as filmi friends in attendance at a SoBo five-star for the celebrations that kicked off at 9 pm and didn’t wind up before 4 am, when the guests started filing out of the venue.
The list of celebs who attended the ceremony featured names like Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Mandira Bedi, Sachin Tendulkar and wife Anjali, Prachi Desai, Rohit Sharma and wife Ritika Sajdeh, Vidya Malvade, Bobby Deol, Arzoo Govitrikar, Manasi Scott, Arshad Warsi and wife Maria Goretti, Anil Ambani, Raveena Tondon, Abhishek Kapoor and Pragya Yadav, Gaurav Kumar, Mukesh Chabbra and many more.
“Zak secretly planned our engagement for days; and I honestly had no clue. I had no idea that he had picked up such a pretty ring for me. I can’t describe that moment and it will forever remain as something very special between us. We are really blessed,” Sagarika told The Times Of India after their engagement.
“I’d proposed to Sagarika while IPL was on and we were just waiting for it to get over so we could celebrate with friends. It was an impromptu plan but I knew I had to do this at some stage, before I focus on other things at hand. It was a chilled out evening as the basic idea was to get together with friends and catch up, while also officially announce the engagement. There’s still time for the wedding and we haven’t decided on the date yet,” Zaheer told Mirror.
Meanwhile, bride-to-be Sagarika had clearly internalised the memo, opting for a “comfortable” gown (a chartruse Monisha Jaising) as there would be “no dancing; only sitting around with friends.” “Zaheer and his friends had been busy with the IPL so we hadn’t found time to celebrate. Now that he’s free, we will sit and fix a date for the wedding,” she said.
