Yuvraj Singh-Hazel Keech marrying on Nov 30, Farah Khan choreographing Sangeet ceremony?
Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh is reportedly marrying British-Mauritian model Hazel Keech on November 30. While Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to attend, Yuvraj’s father Yograj will give the wedding a miss.
Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh and actor Hazel Keech finally have a wedding date: November 30. The ceremony will reportedly be held at a gurdwara in Punjab’s Fatehgarh Sahib, a small town. While Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was personally invited by Yuvraj Singh, might attend the wedding, Yuvraj’s father Yograj Singh will not.
Earlier, Yograj Singh, a former cricket who personally coached his son Yuvraj in his youth and later turned an actor (he played Farhan Akhtar’s coach in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag), had made it clear that he would not attend the wedding as he was opposed to it for being solemnised by a dera leader. This is because Yograj belives in god and not religious leaders. Yuvraj’s parents, Yograj and Shabnam got divorced many years ago and since then, Yuvraj has stayed with his mother.
According to a report in The New Indian Express, a family friend of Yuvraj’s family said that the wedding ceremony would see only 50 people attending it, including family and very close friends.
Yuvaj’s mother Shabnam Singh’s religious mentor is Sant Ajit Singh Hansaliwale who is likely to bless the couple at the Dera Hansaliwale in Hansali village near Fategarh Sahib, where the wedding will take place.
According to sources close to Yuvraj Singh’s family, November 29 will see the mehndi and the first reception party which will be held at Chandigarh’s Hotel Lalit. This will be attended by father Yograj. In addition to this, India and England cricket teams’ players will attend the festivities. At the moment, they are playing a Test match in Mohali. Sources added that if the Test match ends, as scheduled, on November 30, Yuvraj will organise a special dinner for his fellow crickets at Hotel Lalit.
There have also been some talk that a few Indian players might attend the wedding on November 30 and that that would include Sachin Tendulkar as well.
In fact, Yuvraj and Hazel’s wedding will not just be held according to Sikh rites but also Hindu ways. A source was quoted as saying, “On December 2, Yuvraj and Hazel will wed according to Hindu rituals. This ceremony is set to take place at a farm house in Goa again where limited guests have been invited for a lunch reception.”
December 5 is reportedly the date for the Sangeet ceremony which will be held at a farmhouse in Delhi’s Charatpur. A larger reception party is scheduled to be held on December 7 at ITC Maurya in Delhi, according to an insider. At both these functions, Bollywood and the sports world’s glitterati will be seen and reportedly, choreographer and director Farah Khan is choreographing the Sangeet ceremony.
