In a recent interview, Udit Narayan expressed how he wanted to celebrate his son’s wedding with more grandeur, but due to the pandemic this couldn’t quite happen. Aditya Narayan tied the knot with long-term girlfirend Shweta Agarwal this week after being together for 10 years.
Narayan shared with Bollywood Hungama, “I have just one son. I wanted his marriage to be much more lavish. But the Covid has taken the joy away from all celebrations. In fact I wanted my son to wait until this pandemic was over before getting married. But Shweta’s family and Aditya were keen that they get married now. My son and Shweta were in a live-in relationship for 10 years. I guess it was time for them to make it official.”
Talking about managing the guest list, the veteran singer explains he felt disappointed for not being able to invite everyone and that he tried to do the best he could, “Modiji wrote me a letter after I invited him for the wedding. So did Bachchan Saab and Ambaniji. The Defence minister Rajnathji called me to wish us for the wedding. We are fortunate to have the blessings of everyone. For the wedding reception since we were only allowed 50 guests at one venue we hired three sections of the ITC Maratha and invited 50 guests at each of those venues. So we could invite 150 guests. The wedding took place at a temple. Earlier we had the tilak ceremony at the Raheja Classics and then the mehndi and sangeet with a limited number of invitees. I feel sad about not being able to invite everyone. But I promise to invite all my friends after the Covid threat is over.”
Describing his new daughter-in-law, Narayan said, “She is soft-spoken. She hardly speaks. And when she does we have to strain our ears to hear her. We had received many marriage proposals for Aditya, and very tempting ones. When he told my wife and I that he wanted to marry the girl he had been with for so many years I was happy.”
As for the newly-weds, they will be off to Gulmarg, Kashmir, for their honeymoon. Jr Narayan said his wife loves the snow and skiing, making it the perfect destination.
