Tinsel town is abuzz with wedding bells with starlets tying the knot with their loved ones one by one. But out of all the shaadis this year one stood out for its sheer beauty and the love that ensued from all the functions. We're talking about Rubina Dilaik and Abhinav Shukla and their oh-so-gorgeous Shimla wedding.
The two became man and wife last month on the 21st of June and the stunning pictures were all over Instagram. The Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka actor and Shakti Astiva Ke Ehsas Ki actress gave us major #RelationshipGoals with their sweet love story and then #WeddingGoals with their fairytale ceremony. But it's her wedding gift to Abhinav that we are going gaga over.
Talking about the process to a leading online portal, Rubina said, "It all began 3-4 months back jab hamari shaadi ki date finalise hui thi. Main tabse soch rahi thi ki wedding gift kya doongi main Abhinav ko? I wanted to give him something immaterial. And I had been learning a bit of music, as and when mujhe apni shooting se time milta tha. So, I thought – what if I gift him a song?"
She further went on to say that she would pen down four-five lines in a poem form and send it to him via text. She then thought of compiling it all together and share it with him as a surprise for their big day.
Talking about when she first played it for him, the diva said, "On our sangeet in Shimla (I gave him the gift), sabhi dance kar rahe the, and everybody expected me to dance as well. That’s when I played out the song. I wanted to gift him something unexpected. We played the song on the AV monitor."
The last 2 days went by like a dream. The wedding of @rubinadilaik & @ashukla09 was nothing less then a page out of a fairytale. There is so much more to share from the wedding but right now let's take a moment and just watch these two and believe that fairytales can be real too. #rubinadilaik #knottingbells #celebritywedding #love #fairytale #fairytalewedding #bigfatindianwedding
"At first, he just looked at the video, spellbound, as I had compiled our personal footage from the last 4 years. It was footage from our travels and celebrations – Diwali, Holi, aisi choti-choti clips mere paas thi and I patched them together. Initially, he thought ki some film song par I made that video. But then, in the middle of the song, he realised that it was not a film song. He asked me, “Have you sung this?” I just smiled. He got up and started dancing, he was so elated”, the newlywed added.
She even revealed that the footage she had were tiny clips from here and there. It took her a good 15-20 days to sift through and short-list all the footage for the video. That's some dedication!
Wow, standing ovation for this, Abhinav sure is a lucky guy! ❤
