Ash-Abhi wedding

Just as reports on one wedding celebration die down, news about another starts flying thick and fast. A report in the Guardian proclaims the Aishwarya Rai-Abhishek Bachchan wedding will be ‘greatest in the nation’s modern history’.
With a guest list expected to exceed 5,000, helicopters hired to shower petals over the reception and the astrological charts finally predicting a union that is truly blessed, the paper claims that the marriage of the former Miss World and the son of Asia’s most famous actor Amitabh Bachchan is expected to happen within a month.
It goes on to say that the ceremony, set to be held over 10 days in a private estate on the outskirts of Mumbai and a palace in the northern state of Rajasthan, is being hailed as a Bollywood fairytale.
“For Indians across the world this wedding will be as big as Charles and Diana’s was for the British,’ Bollywood gossip columnist Amita Ghosh is quoted as saying. “A marriage of two such mega brands from Bollywood will result in a $100m payday for both couples from spin-offs.”
