After Ganesh Chaturthi, Neil Nitin Mukesh and wife Rukmini Sahay will head to London, where the star has a his next movie lined up.
Mukesh, who married Sahay in February this year, will be flying to London for a five-week-long honeymoon. However, it looks to be a working honeymoon for Mukesh because he will shooting for his film ‘Firrkie,’ which also stars Jackie Shroff and Kay Kay Menon, reports the Hindustan Times.
“This year, I won’t be there for all the 10 days of Ganesh Chaturthi. I’m off on a working honeymoon with Rukmini. She enjoys coming to the sets as that’s the only way we get to spend time with each other. Ever since I got married, I’ve been busy with work. Rukmini deserves my complete attention. So, I’ll extend my trip and London also is her favourite holiday destination,” says Mukesh. The star will shoot for the film for the first three weeks and the rest of the time in London will be spent with his better half. Mukesh’s brother, Naman Nitin Mukesh, who is planning to venture into direction soon, might also accompany him on the trip.
Meanwhile, Mukesh and his family are leaving no stone unturned to make their 23rd Ganesh Chaturthi a memorable one as it is the first one after his marriage. The theme for this year’s Ganapati Puja in his house is on Krishna Rasleela. There will be a bhajan session by his father, Nitin Mukesh, and also a mini Janamashthami celebration given that the family couldn’t be together during the festival that was celebrated early this month.
Sahay will wear a lehenga that goes with the theme. The ensemble is being put together by designer Neeta Lulla. “It is inspired by Vrindavan. Since this is Neil’s and Rukmani’s first Ganesh Utsav after marriage, the young couple decided to wear colour coordinated clothes,” says Lulla.
Also, Sahay will wear an anklet right after the Ganapati Puja. The piece of jewellery was gifted a few years ago by the family’s spiritual guide to Mukesh’s mother Nishi Mukesh for her to be daughter-in-law.
“My mother always desired of a Radharani theme for Ganapati since she is a devout Krishna follower. It’s been exactly one year since I met Rukmini and Bappa truly fulfilled my heart’s desire. I clearly remember it was the first day of Ganapati last year when I met Rukmini and the minute she told me her name I was convinced that she was the one for me,” says Mukesh.
