Back in June 2012, Dharmendra and Hema Malini’s daughter Esha Deol tied the knot with her fiancé Bharat Takhtani in a private ceremony at the Iskon Temple in Juhu. What followed was a wedding celebration
that was attended by close
family and friends. Now a couple of years on, we hear that Esha has tiedthe knot yet again, but this time the actress took three instead of seven pheras.
In fact on August 24, Esha and Bharat took the three pheras that are customary as per the Sindhi tradition of ‘Godh Bharai’. If that wasn’t all we also hear that like her wedding, Esha’s and her husband’s attire was once again designed by her long-time friend Neeta Lulla. As for the ceremony, unlike her wedding that was in Tamil, the ‘Godh Bharai’ was conducted by a Sindhi priest who chanted mantras in Hindi as well. Apart from the customary prayers
the priest also chanted prayers for the well-being of her child too, following which family members applied oil on Esha’s forehead and shower her with blessings and gifts. Besides the prayers there was also a `mehendi’ ceremony with the women singing and dancing to folk songs.
