It was one of the most memorable days for Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra. After a nine-long-year of courtship, the duo tied the nuptial knots on Thursday, Oct 29. However, violence, dharna, protest outside their wedding venue marred the celebration. The newly-wed couple and their relatives were disturbed by the incidents and Harbhajan was forced to come out of his house and apologise to media persons.
It has been reported that bouncers hired by Harbhajan allegedly snatched and smashed cameras from photo journalists who had come to Jalandhar to cover the high-profile marriage ceremony. According to sources, the bouncers also allegedly manhandled the media persons who later sat on dharna outside the wedding venue. Citing the situation outside his house, Harbhajan came out and spoke to all journalists personally. Hearing the arguments, the cricketer apologised to the media persons. However, a police case has been filed against unidentified person(s) in connection with the violence outside the house of the cricketer.
A grand reception will be held in New Delhi on Sunday, Nov 1. It is expected to be a star-studded affair where cricketers, actors, ministers including Prime Minister Narendra Modi too are expected to be present.
After a fairy-tale mehendi on Monday, which was gatecrashed by Bhajji, the couple spent some time dancing with friends, family and star guests at the sangeet. Mika Singh and Gurdas Maan were the entertainers of the evening, and actor/comedian Gurpreet Ghuggi made an appearance too. Some of Bhajji’s cricketer friends, including Parthiv Patel and RP Singh, joined in. The evening also saw the couple exchange rings, and make a Bollywood-style performance too.
Wednesday night was all about the jago ceremony, an integral part of Punjabi marriage rituals. Bhajji’s sisters, mother and other relatives carried a decorated ghara and did some giddha, taking a round of the locality. “There was lot of halla gulla and dholis were called,” a source said. Bhajji wore a green Pathani suit for the occasion. After the jago ceremony, a special dinner was organized.Cricketers Sarandeep Singh and Rahul Sharma were present too.
To maintain privacy, the cricketer’s house in a posh locality in Jalandhar was cordoned off. His wedding card has a special entry pass. On the jago evening, bouncers were given special T-shirts with Harbhajan and Geeta written on them. “The bouncers’ uniforms are being altered for each occasion,” the source said.happy wheels
