Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha's Wedding Details Revealed
Who danced at her wedding, the guest list and the actor who stood in for her father. We get you the real story
Dia Mirza, sporting a Ritu Kumar-designed green and beige ensemble, exchanged vows with her beau and business partner Sahil Sangha in New Delhi on Saturday. The couple, who got engaged in New York earlier this year, had an Arya Samaj wedding ceremony at a farmhouse in Ghitorni. The duo came out post wedding and posed for the shutterbugs.
If Dia looked royal in Kumar's creation, the groom looked dapper in a Raghavendra Rathore-designed outfit. "The look is classic with no embroidery and comprises a cream silk linen brocade achkan with an emerald green pocket square. This has been paired with an inner emerald green kurta which matches with what Dia wore," Rathore said. "An off-white safa with a sarpech which has emeralds embedded completes the look. Incidentally, we have also designed the outfits for his mehndi and sangeet," he added.
Dia Mirza was thrilled on her big day. Sharing with us intimate details about her elaborate wedding, she says, “It’s a time of joy and love, and I feel overwhelmed” adding that it was emotional for her to see her mother (who underwent a heart surgery a few months ago) practicing dance steps! She said, “A lot of what you feel as a bride is an extension of what everybody around you is feeling… there’s joy, tears, laughter…”
Designer Ritu Kumar had designed the bride’s trousseau and Dia defined it as a “dream ensemble.” What’s most interesting is that Dia’s co-star, Boman Irani performed at the wedding rituals as her father. She said, “Boman Irani is someone I have always called pop and I share a special bond with him. When we were shooting for Lage Raho Munnabhai he had said, ‘Whenever you get married, I’d like to give you away.’”
According to sources, celebrities like Lara Dutta, Sushmita Sen Cyrus, Sahukar and Zayed Khan attended the wedding. The former beauty queen has acted in Bollywood films such as Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein and Parineeta.
Dia, 32, is also a film producer. Sahil produced Love Breakups Zindagi, the first movie under their jointly owned banner, Born Free Entertainment.
