Katrina Kaif, 38, and Vicky Kaushal, 33, had been dating for about two years. While the arrangements and guest list for the wedding was closely guarded, close friends and colleagues of the couple, including Katrina’s frequent collaborator filmmaker Kabir Khan, his actor wife Mini Mathur, director Vijay Krishna Achara of Dhoom 3 and Thugs of Hindostan fame, actor couple Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi are among those attending the wedding.
The first photos of the newly weds and their haldi ceremony have emerged on social media. According to an ANI report, a reception in Mumbai will take place next week. Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif tied the knot in Rajasthan’s Six Senses Fort Barwara, Sawai Madhopur district on Thursday. The ceremony was an intensely private affair with close friends and family in attendance.
After sharing a series of stunning pics from their dreamy wedding, the newlyweds have now posted a bunch of breathtaking photos from their Haldi ceremony. Sharing the photos with fans on Instagram, the couple wrote, “Shukr. Sabr. Khushi. (Grateful. Patience. Happiness).” In the pictures, Katrina and Vicky are all smiles as they apply Haldi to each other. In one of the pics, the couple is seen holding hands as they enjoy the moment.
Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal’s wedding was largely a lavish and private affair with heavily guarded wedding venue making it difficult for the media to report much to the fans. Katrina opted for a red bridal lehnga, while Vicky wore an ivory sherwani, both designed by celebrity favourite fashion designer Sabyasachi.
However, the newly-wed celebrities are still way below other power couples from Bollywood when it comes to popularity. Kaif and Kaushal stood at the ninth position in the annual Power Couples Survey released by the Indian Institute of Human Brands (IIHB).
Despite the hype and curiosity around the wedding cake, designer lehenga, honeymoon location, catering and everything else, according to the report, the couple is still a lot less popular compared to other celebrity couples like Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt and even Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna.
Since Kaushal is only beginning to make a name for himself in Bollywood and Kaif’s career has plateaued with her last few films – Thugs of Hindustan, Zero, Bharat – falling flat on the box office, the only pitch for the duo as a couple brand is the novelty factor.
