Yesteryear actress Bindiya Goswami and filmmaker JP Dutta will revisit their past when their daughter, producer Nidhi Dutta, ties the knot with filmmaker Binoy Gandhi on March 7. The wedding will take place on the Rambagh Palace grounds in Jaipur — the same venue where Bindiya and the filmmaker had started their journey together.
The proud mom is leaving no stone unturned to make the marriage a memorable experience for everyone. The actress, who has conceptualised all the ceremonies, including the mehendi, sangeet and haldi, says, “I’ve been preparing for this day since last March when we finalised the venue and visited Rambagh.”
She further elaborates, “The theme of every function has a meaning and is extremely close to our hearts. For example, the theme for the mehendi ceremony is ‘Krishna Ki Chhavi’. It’s an ode to my side of the family, as my father is from Gokul (Mathura). The sangeet is based on our favourite place in London — Annabels. It’s a members-only club, which is known for its beautiful and whacky decor.”
“Every function has a theme colour as well. The colour code for haldi is called ‘Marigold Speech’, as people have to be dressed in shades of saffron. While it’s ‘Hues of Gold’ for the wedding, one can wear anything ‘Ostentatiously Indian’ for the sangeet. So yes, it’s going to be a lot of fun,” the bride’s mother adds. What about the big day? She replies, “The wedding venue is truly special, as it is where JP and I decided to be together forever. Our journey started on those lawns and now, our baby is beginning her love story at the same place. We have called it the ‘Garden of the Gods’, because we want all our Gods to bless the young couple.”
The veteran actress is going to perform at the sangeet, too. She shares, “Yes, I’ll be performing with my daughters Nidhi and Siddhi.”
Talking about her to-be son-in-law, she says, “I love Binoy for the person he is, and for the way he completes our family. He’s indeed the best partner for my daughter and they complement each other perfectly.”
