However, unlike Hazel and Yuvraj, Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan kept their wedding ceremony a relatively intimate affair with just family and close friends being part of the registration formalities. It was a low-key ceremony, which had Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, actress Vidya Malavade and director Abhishek Kapoor in attendance. There was a party arranged in the evening where many celebrities from the sports world and Bollywood stars were present.
Zaheer and Sagarika got engaged in May this year.
For the cocktail party, Sagarika kept it simple as she chose to don a salmon coloured lehenga choli with minimal makeup while Zaheer sported a black sherwani.
"I have never spoken about my personal relationships. Personal space is not for discussion", Sagarika had told Mid-day in February. Zaheer and Sagarika were seen walking hand-in-hand as they came to interact with the media and posed for the cameras. Based on what we're seeing, the photoshoot is really going to be something!
The couple is all set to host a grand reception on November 27. There will be a pre and post wedding functions. "We want this to be a get-together for close friends and family", Zaheer said. While Zaheer Kahn remained the backbone of India's pace attack for over a decade, Ghatge shot to fame with Chak de! Zaheer announced his retirement from global and first-class cricket two years back as the country's fourth-highest wicket-taker across formats.
