Marriage is the highest happiness man can achieve in the world. It makes you complete and gives you the legal rights to be with your special someone. While many stars have taken the holy vow since last year, here is another good news in the Bollywood family. Sushmita Sen’s brother, Rajeev Sen got married to his long time girlfriend Charu Asopa in the court by changing rings and signing the certificates in front of law. The couple took the plunge on June 9th.
Rajeev took to Instagram to post the first pictures of his wedding ceremony held in court. He gave a cute caption to the pics that read, “I Rajeev sen take Charu asopa as my lawful wife #rajakibittu”. In the pictures, we can see the duo posing for the camera. While Charu looked gorgeous in a bright red saree, Rajeev complemented her in a white kurta pajama.
The couple will have a traditional wedding ceremony on 16th of June. Confirming the same, Charu had once said, “It will be an intimate affair with just 20-25 people each from our respective families in attendance. Our families had originally zeroed in on a date in December, but Rajeev, during a conversation with me, said that it’s too far. That’s how we advanced the date to June 16. Forget others, even our families were surprised to learn about our decision. We will have a reception in Mumbai depending on the availability of our families and friends.”
She had also shared her wedding plans in an interview. It read, “I have always dreamt of having a white wedding. So, we plan to have a Christian-themed engagement and I will wear a white gown for it. The idea is to start with white — the colour stands for peace and purity — and then add colours to our functions and costumes, with us in red on our wedding day. We will be colour-coordinated for all our functions. While the pheras will happen according to Rajasthani and Bengali rituals, the theme for the wedding will be royal Rajasthani. I am in a shopping mode now. I haven’t taken up any new project, as I want to spend time with Rajeev after marriage.”
Her equation with Rajeev sister, the Miss Universe Sushmita Sen were also discussed. She said, You won’t believe that I impersonated Sushmita Sen, when she was crowned Miss Universe, at a fancy dress competition in my school. I was very young then. I showed her the picture and she said that I looked adorable in it (smiles). Imagine the stroke of luck, she will be my sister-in-law soon. She told us to never sleep over a fight, and resolve our differences without any delay. Of course, like any other couple, Rajeev and I, too, have our share of fights, but we also resolve it in no time. He is very mature. We respect each other and we are good friends before anything else. Sushmita didi told me that jab aap bohot comfortable ho jaate ho kisi ke saath then you should know that he is the right guy for you. In my case, it’s Rajeev, because we are extremely comfortable with each other.”
