Veteran singer Udit Narayan has revealed that his son Aditya and actress Shweta Agarwal were in a live-in relationship for 10 years before getting hitched. The lovebirds, who met on the sets of the 2010 horror film 'Shaapit', tied the knot on December 1.
Speaking about his son's wedding amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Udit in an interview with Bollywood Hungama said, "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," he added.
The singer, who had invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amitabh Bachchan and others for the wedding reception, also revealed that the PM wrote a letter to him.
"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," he said.
Singer-actor Aditya Narayan had recently posted an Instagram video giving a glimpse of the ceremony. For an uber-glam effect, the video had been edited to feature Amitabh Bachchan!
The young groom shared a video of the two getting married. It ended with a meme, which featured Amitabh's clip from a film. He can be heard saying: "They have done it. Our boys have reached."
Aditya captioned the post: "Video edit courtesy idiot best friend Anupam Saroj, featuring GOAT Amitabh Bachchan."
While good wishes and congratulations poured in for the couple, many netizens noted how funny the video was.
Aditya also posted a photo of the newly-married couple where they can be seen lovingly looking at each other and smiling.
He let the pic do all the talking as he posted it without a caption, and just used a couple with heart emoji to describe it.
