Prateeksha gears up for wedding

Santosh Desai | April 20, 2007 13:39 IST

The D-day has finally arrived and Amitabh Bachchan's Juhu residence Prateeksha is all geared up for the big wedding.

Don't Miss: Ash-Abhishek wedding

The wedding rituals are expected to take place at 5.30 pm at Prateeksha. The baraat, as decided earlier, will move form Jalsa, Bachchan's other house, to Prateeksha, over a span of 30 minutes. The traffic will be diverted for about two hours for this.

About 200-250 guests, including Danny Denzongpa, Ajay Devgan, Suniel Shetty, Nasreen Munni Kabir and Yash Chopra are rumoured to attend the wedding. 

11 priests will perform the simple wedding ceremony along the
Arya Samaj rituals, in keeping with the wishes of the late Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan.

Prateeksha will be decorated with red and white flowers. The Bachchans have always preferred these two colours and this was amply proven in the past, during Shweta Bachchan's wedding ceremony. The attire for both Aishwarya and Abhishek has been designed by the designer duo Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla. It is be believed that Aishwarya would be wearing a hot-pink ghagara

Meanwhile, security has increased at the Bachchan residence since the day of sangeet, which witnessed just a single barricade. On Thursday night, a second barricade was erected.
