More dope on the Abhishek-Ash wedding

We had reported earlier that Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai would tie the knot on April 20. Now, here's more dope on the year's biggest wedding in the Hindi film industry.

The young couple will wed at 6:30 pm at Jalsa, Bachchan's residence in Mumbai.

Incidentally, the Bachchans wanted the wedding to take place on April 19 but the day -- called Bharani Krittika -- is considered inauspicious for the Rais, due to the placement of the stars.

The sangeet will take place on April 18 at Jalsa, while the mehendi will take place the next day at Ash's residence, La Mer, in Bandra.

The bidaai (when the bride bids goodbye to her parents) will take place on April 21, at her residence.

The wedding may be a huge affair for the film industry, but the Bachchans hope to keep it small as Amitabh Bachchan's mother Teji is in hospital. They will invite a small number of people like family, Amar Singh and the Ambanis. The Rais will invite only 25-30 guests from their side.

The reception will take place in June, in Mumbai.
