A couple of days back, one of the most talked about marriage ceremonies happened in Jaisalmer, with Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani tying the knot. Well, while every media outlet ensured there was coverage of the mega event, a surprising fact was that a number of industry folk were spotted at the airport. In fact, spotting names like Mohanlal, Prithviraj, Farah Khan, Malaika Arora and even Kamal Haasan, left everyone wondering why half of the South Film Industry and a chunk of Bollywood had descended on Jaisalmer.
Interestingly, all of them were in the city just two days after Siddharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani’s wedding at the same venue. Well, here is the truth… K Madhavan, president of the Walt Disney Company India and Star India, and his wife had invited the entire South film fraternity and some from Bollywood too, for the couple’s Shashti Poorthi, the traditional Tamilian undertaking of marriage vows a second time at the age of 60.
I wonder why the film fraternity was being so secretive about it!
