Rani Mukherji and Aditya Chopra’s traditional Bengali wedding

Rani Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra’s fairy-tale wedding that recently happened in Italy was nothing short of perfect and it happened just the way Rani had always dreamed of it. Read on to know more about Rani and Aditya Chopra’s Bengali wedding…

Aditya Chopra makes romantic films, but prefers not to display romance in his personal life. However, he pulled out all the stops for his wedding and gave his bride Rani Mukerji, the wedding that she always dreamed of. The first time around the producer had a big fat Punjabi wedding, but this time it was a Bengali shaadi all the way.

The wedding was planned in Italy but it was entirely a traditional Indian one.

Says a source, “Adi planned his wedding with as much precision as he does his films. He knew that his bride and her family wanted a traditional Bengali wedding, and that’s what he gave them. So all rituals were completely Bengali, including the blowing of conch shells, ululation, and where the brother takes his sister on a piri (a wooden seat) around the fire. Before the ceremony started, Krishna (the bride’s mother) received Adi into the family with the bor-boron ceremony.”

Adi even flew down a pandit to Italy and wore the traditional dhuti-Punjabi (dhoti and kurta) and topor (white conical headgear traditionally worn by grooms as part of the wedding ceremony which is made of shola) that the groom wears. Rani wore a similar headgear called mukut. Both Adi and Rani’s wedding clothes were designed by Sabyasachi (as was Rani’s wedding trousseau). Rani wore a traditional red and gold Bengali Benarasi silk saree while Adi wore a cream dhoti and kurta with gold embroidery on it. Rani even had white and red dots on her forehead with a big red bindi in the center as Bengali brides wear.”

Adi and Rani did the saat paak when the bride encircles the groom seven times, still sitting on the piri covering her face with paan (bête leaves). “The couple even had comes shubho drishti, when the bride finally puts down the leaves and their eyes meet. No Bengali wedding is complete without the ululation and blowing of conch shells and Rani’s wedding had that too. Rani wore aaltaa (red dye) on her feet as a Bengali bride is supposed to wear that on her palms and feet.”
