PIX: Inside Arpita Khan's magnificent wedding celebrations

Last updated on: November 20, 2014 18:17 IST

This wedding was opulence at its best!

Salman Khan and his family clearly did not spare any expenses for Arpita's wedding.

Here's a dekko at several fun moments from the ceremony and the regal Taj Falaknuma palace, the grand venue for the wedding!

This adorable picture sees SalmanSohail and Arbaaz escort their beaming sister to the mandap.

 

The bridegroom Ayush Sharma leads the baraat.

 

The Khan brothers take part in the rituals.

 

Patriarch Salim Khan interacts with his new son-in-law.

 

 

Big brother Salman Khan, who recently joined Instagram (presumably to share pictures from his baby sister's wedding), posted this goofy picture of him lying at the bride's feet.

Arpita's wrists have the Punjabi kaleeren tied to them. According to the Punjabi tradition, a bride-to-be wears kaleeren as part of a pre-wedding ritual and shakes her hands over the heads of all the single girls present.

The girl on whose head it eventually falls, is believed to be the next in line to get hitched.

Is Salman hinting at something with this gesture?

 

 

Salim and Salman Khan stand by Arpita and the bridegroom Aayush Sharma as the wedding rituals proceed.

Here's some more of royalty to feast your eyes on.
