The beautiful bride Kajal Aggarwal has shared her first post , after her wedding yesterday to Gautam Kitchlu, held at Mumbai.
In a heartwarming post on insta, Kajal has poured out her feelings for her husband and soulmate who she describes as also her best friend. She is thrilled to have found the perfect partner to share her life with.
She posted a pic of the duo sitting after the pheras ceremony, where she is seen kissing his hand in a warm gesture of love. And she wrote, "And just like that, from ms to mrs! I married my confidante, companion, best friend and soulmate. So glad I found all of this and my home in you @kitchlug #kajgautkitched "
In addition, she also added another post with details about another aspect of her traditional Hindu wedding ceremony.
The wedding was done in Kashmiri and Punjabi traditions, as Gautam hails from Kashmir and Kajal is Punjabi. But, the duo have also added a Telugu traditional ritual. Sharing a pic, Kajal wrote, "In our Punjabi meets Kashmiri wedding, we just had to include #Jeelakarrabellam , a tribute to both Gautam and my individual relationships with South India!
In a Telugu wedding, Jeelakarra Bedlam signifies the union/ marriage of the bride and the groom. Jeelakarra (cumin) and bellam (jaggery) are made into a thick paste and put on a tamalapaku (betel leaf). The bride and the groom put it on each other's head while the purohit chants mantras from the Vedas. The bride and the groom look at each other only after this ceremony is completed and this auspicious ceremony signifies that the couple will stay together in bitter and sweet times"
Surely, this is an endearing, thoughtful and warm gesture, keeping in mind the deep roots Kajal has in Tollywood and the outpouring of love she has from myriads of her fans.
For his part, a beaming Gautam posted a pic writing ' Man and wife'.
Kajal posted another pic thanking all her guests and relatives and said how much she missed those who could not make it but attended virtually.
The photos are taken on the grand staircase inside the classic Taj Mahal Hotel.
Kajal is wearing Anamika Khanna while Gautam is wearing Anita Dongre.
The happy couple certainly look a made-for-each- other pair!
