The wedding sangeet of Esha Deol and Bharat Takhlani was held on June 25th, at the Hotel Lalit Intercontinental in Andheri in Mumbai. It was attended by around 200 guests, which included Bollywood stars like Ritesh and Genelia (who recently got married), Riya and Raima Sen, Zayed Khan, and cousin-brother Abhay Deol. Esha Deol’s father Dharmendra did not attend the sangeet ceremony, and neither did the Deol half-brothers (Bobby and Sunny).
For Esha Deol’s Sangeet, the wedding venue was decorated in a red-and-black scheme, with a retro 70s touch (for example, there were glittering disco balls hanging down from the ceiling).
For the sangeet, Esha Deol wore a beautiful orange/red lehenga-choli with indigo designs and gold zari work. It was designed by leading fashion designer Rocky S. Her fiancé Bharat Takhlani wore a shining blue velvet sherwani, with gold embroidery, designed by Simone Khambatta (one of his close friends).
