Those who hoped that Varun Dhawan’s marriage with his long-standing girlfriend Natasha Dalal would kick off the wedding season in showbiz for this year, are in for a sore disappointment.
No more star marriages are likely to happen in 2021. Not even the long-delayed, long-expected Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt wedding.
A source very close to both Ranbir and Alia informs me that they have made no marriage plans for this year. “It’s all in the media’s mind. The couple is happy together. Alia has a perfect bonding with Neetuji (Ranbir’s mother Neetu Kapoor). But she is not looking at marriage anytime in the near future.”
Neither are the other high-profile star couples like Malaika Arora Khan-Arjun Kapoor, Katrina Kaif-Vicky Kaushal, Disha Patani-Tiger Shroff and Patralekha-Rajkummar Rao. None of these relationships is leading up to the altar this year. All these couples are happy to be together without the burden of an official ceremony.
As one of the above actors told me, “Marriages are for babies(meaning, get married only when you want to have children).Otherwise we are happy the way we are.”
Let’s say a warm goodbye to the Big Fat Bollywood Weddings.
Varun Dhawan and Natasha Dalal who were earlier supposed to get married in the summer of 2020 couldn't walk down the aisle because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Years of love culminated in a union this in the January of 2021 as the Dhawans and Dalals headed to Alibaug for private wedding festivities.
