After hosting a dinner for close friends, newlywed couple Neha Dhupia-Angad Bedi will host a grand reception for Bollywood and Cricket world in July. Angad spilled the beans over their reception plans to Mid-day. The actor said, “We are hoping to host a reception in the first week of July. Shaadi toh kar li, but we have to go reverse now. She (Neha) needs to give me five days to figure this out. We have seen a few venues and are yet to zero in on one."
Later, the actor revealed that his list is quite long, and he doesn’t want to host reception in the absence of a few special ones.
He said, “I want my close friends to be there. Right now, all of them are busy. [Ashish] Nehra is not in town. From the film industry, I want Mr [Amitabh] Bachchan and Salman [Khan] bhai to be there, and they are both caught up right now." Later he added that the celebrations will follow after they lock in on a house they wish to purchase.
Reflecting on his nuptials that took the country off-guard, a casual conversation with Dhupia about life kicked things into gear. He said, “One day, Neha and I were talking about life, and I told her I want to settle down with her. We've known each other for a while. I have been interested in her for a long time. I spoke to her parents. They loved me, especially her mother. We had the idea of having a winter wedding, but my dad [Bishan Singh Bedi] said we should keep it small. Between the cricket and Bollywood industries, we should have a guest list of 2,000 people."
Had the ceremony not taken place last month, the couple's commitments would have kept them busy for a year. "Neha is leaving for the US soon, and I am in between three projects. So, it was now or never for us."
