Filmmaker JP Dutta and yesteryear actress Bindiya Goswami’s daughter, Nidhi Dutta, will get married to filmmaker Binoy Gandhi on March 7. The pre-wedding ceremonies have already begun at the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur. The bride’s mother has left no stone unturned to ensure that her daughter’s wedding is memorable.
She says that she has invested a lot of thought in conceptualising all the ceremonies, including the mehendi, sangeet and haldi. “The theme of every function has a meaning and each ceremony is very special for us. The theme for the mehendi ceremony is ‘Krishna Ki Chhavi’. It’s an ode to my side of the family, as my father is from Gokul (Mathura). The sangeet is themed on our favourite place in London, which is Annabels. It’s known for its beautiful and whacky decor,” says Bindiya.
She adds that apart from the event theme, every ceremony also has a colour theme. “The colour code for haldi is called ‘Marigold Speech’, as people have to be dressed in shades of saffron. It’s ‘Hues of Gold’ for the wedding, and people can wear anything Indian for the sangeet. We are looking forward to having a lot of fun,” adds the bride’s mother, who has also prepared a special act for the sangeet. “I will be performing with my daughters Nidhi and Siddhi,” she says.
Meanwhile, Bindiya and her husband are elated to welcome the new member in their family. They are proud to have Binoy as their son-in-law. Bindiya says, “I love Binoy for the person he is, and for the way he completes our family. He’s indeed the best partner for my daughter and they complement really well.”
