Yes, it was a traditional marriage and congrats to the newly wed couple. The only thing that left a bitter taste in the mouth was the wedding guest list. The rich and powerful like the Ambanis, Subroto Roy, Nandas, Wadia, Thackeray, Amar Singh and the Deshmukhs were obviously invited. Some producers like Ram Gopal Varma who are paying the actors salaries in upcoming films were invited. Other stars who have had happy marriages were also invited like Sachin Tendulkar, Sonali Bendre, Rishi Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor and Kajol.
People who were not invited -
1. Competitors of Abhishek and Aishwarya like John Abraham, Hrithik, Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor.
2. Ex-girlfriends/boyfriends - Salman Khan, Vivek Oberoi, Rani Mukherjee and thier families.
3. People in non traditional marriages, live in relationships and divorcees - Hema Malini, Dharmendra, Randhir Kapoor, Rekha, Sushmita Sen etc.
4. Muslims, Christians, and Parsis or people who have married Muslims, Christians or Parsis. AR Rehman and Aman Ali Bangash were the few Muslim sounding names invited for the wedding. (AR Rehman's real name is actually A.S Dileep Kumar while Aman Ali Bangash has recently been harping about his Hindu heritage to the media)
Ok, it is understandable why ex's should not be invited to a wedding, but why be so traditional in not inviting the others ?? If not to the wedding ceremony then at least to a reception ?? What do you say ??
