Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani are gearing up for the arrival of their first child towards the end of 2017. The first time parents wanted to leave no stone unturned to celebrate this joyous moment of their lives. They had a superb babymoon ( yeah, it’s a thing) in Santorini Greece and an equally fabulous pregnancy shoot to mark their last time together before becoming parents.
The eventual baby shower (god bharai) ceremony, that took place on 24th August, too was a stand out celebration as both Esha and Bharat wanted to include a phera ceremony. They took their wedding vows again to reaffirm their love and commitment to each other. The one-of-a-kind god bharai/phera ceremony was attended by close family members and friends like Jaya Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia and Madhoo.
Esha looked radiant with her pregnancy glow and the pink and red anarkali designed by Neeta Lulla added to her beauty. The plans for the look on this special day took place days in advance with the designer herself sharing details about the outfit. Keeping in mind the comfort aspect, the outfit had an asymmetric hemline to facilitate free movement. Her hubby Bharat looked debonair in a signature white sherwani and complemented her completely.
The ceremony itself followed Sindhi rituals. The couple took three pheras instead of seven and the Deol family poured oil on Esha’s head and bestowed her with gifts. Conducted by a Sindhi priest, all the traditional rituals were followed which included a mehendi ceremony and satvik lunch.
Here is wishing the happy couple a great transition into parenthood. May their soon-to-be-arriving bundle of joy bring them closer and strengthen their relationship even more. With their high school romance culminating into marriage and now with the introduction of a tiny baby boy or girl, may their lives always be beautiful and blessed with happiness.
