Kajal Aggarwal and entrepreneur Gautam Kitchlu got hitched on October 30 in Mumbai. It was a hush-hush ceremony with only family members and close friends in attendance. Kajal and Gautam took to their Instagram handle to share some stunning pictures from their wedding.
Sharing a picture from their Punjabi-Kashmiri wedding, Kajal wrote, “In our Punjabi meets Kashmiri wedding, we just had to include #Jeelakarrabellam జీలకర్రాబెల్లం – a tribute to both Gautam and my individual relationships with South India! 😍 In a Telugu wedding, Jeelakarra Bellam 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 ❤️”
In another pic, we see Kajal adorably kissing Gautam’s hand. “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,” she captioned the pic.
In the third picture, Kajal and Gautam looked regal in their wedding outfits. She captioned the pic, “Planning a wedding entails so many moving parts and added to that the pandemic definitely was a challenge. However we strictly followed covid protocols which meant we had to have a very small wedding, got all our guests tested and created a bubble for everyone who was a part of our celebration. We are very grateful for all our loved ones that were able to attend and those who joined virtually from afar were terribly missed and we hope to see you all soon.”
We wish Kajal and Gautam a happy married life!
