Abhishek-Ash, now man and wife

Patcy N | April 20, 2007 21:10 IST

Abhishek Bachchan has married Aishwarya Rai. The much-publicised wedding has been solemnised at Amitabh Bachchan's home Prateeksha, in suburban Juhu.

The Ash-Abhishek wedding

Clad in a cream and gold sherwani and his face covered by strands of flowers, Abhishek looked every part the jubilant groom, waving at his friends and onlookers as he made his way -- astride a beautifully decorated white horse -- to Prateeksha.

Before he started off, younger sister Shweta performed Nazar Utarana to ward off the evil eye.

The guests included Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, industrialist Anil Ambani and wife Tina, Sahara Group chairman Subroto Roy, Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, Dimple Kapadia, Anupam Kher, Shammi Kapoor, Vashu Bhagnani and Ashutosh Gowariker.

Among the first to leave were Ram Gopal Varma and Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray, and his wife.

The waiting media was left disappointed as their view of the baarat entering was obstructed by a row of buses parked deliberately before the gate.

The main ceremony was a short and simple, sources said, adding that Ash's bidaai will be held on Saturday, early morning at her Bandra residence.
