Producer Nidhi Dutta, filmmaker-writer JP Dutta and actress Bindiya Goswami’s daughter, is set to tie the knot with director Binoy Gandhi on March 7 in Jaipur. The sangeet ceremony will be held on March 6.
A source close to the couple reveals, “It is a case of history repeating itself. Nidhi has zeroed in on Jaipur, as JP Dutta, for films like Border and Refugee, had proposed his love to Bindiya in the pink city. The wedding will take place at the exact location and under the same tree where the senior couple had professed their love for each other, followed by the proposal. Besides, Jaipur is like Nidhi’s second home. She would frequent the city with her mother as a child.”
Nidhi and Binoy got engaged on August 29 and had originally planned to exchange vows in December. However, the wedding had to be postponed owing to the pandemic. The source adds, “They realised that many guests wouldn’t be able to attend the wedding owing to coronavirus. So, they decided to postpone the wedding to 2021. They had shortlisted a couple of dates and finalised March 7 for their big day.”
The bride-to-be has started sending out the wedding invites. Talking about it, a guest reveals, “It is a customised invite. We have received a rose quartz tray and a box of mithai with silver Ganesha embossed on it. What makes the invite special is that the card has a shlok from a bhajan written by Nidhi’s grandfather (OP Dutta) for a music album, printed on it.”
Nidhi met Binoy on the set of a film he was making for the former’s company, which also featured her as an actress. While the project never saw the light of the day, they became good friends during the course of the film. Their friendship blossomed into love, and now, they are all set to become man and wife.
