New Delhi: Nick and Priyanka unlike DeepVeer have already saved a lot by hosting their wedding in Jodhpur where there was no need of boats to carry each guest to the venue.
They are going to save even more as Prime Minister Modi has graciously offered his official residence in 7, Lok Kalyan Marg to host their Delhi reception on Dec 4th.
Last week when the couple visited Prime Minister’s residence to invite him for the wedding, he had already left for Argentina to attend G-20 summit.
“Sir knows Priyanka Ji well. He had met her couple of times before during his foreign visits. He was sad he won’t be able to attend the functions, but he had instructed me to offer the house for wedding reception if the couple wants,” said Naman Mishra, chief caretaker of the residence.
Cost savings is not the only thing, spotting a suitable place in the smog filled Delhi would not have been easy. Relatives from both sides are ecstatic with PM Modi’s magnanimity.
“In this dense smog, yesterday I slapped a person who was trying to hold my hand, later I found it was my husband. Acha hua beta, Itna bada ghar mil gaya. Parking ka bhi koi problem nahin. Even if hundred Paparazzi’s come here following Taimur, no issues for us,” said Manjari Chopra, eldest aunt of Priyanka.
It’s not only happy times for Nick & Priyanka’s family, the staff at the Prime Minister’s residence are excited to see the flower decoration, lightings that is in full swing.
“Bahut boring place hai yeh. Jyaada koi aata bhi nahin idhar. Cook ka bhi pata nahin, kahin bhag gaya hai. I am happy I will get a chance to eat tasty Pakwans during the reception”, said Sailesh Yadav, the gate keeper who wants to take a selfie with Parineeti Chopra.
