Salman Khan has been invited as a ‘state guest’ by the Himachal Pradesh government, as reported by IANS, as the state Rural Development Minister Anil Sharma is Aayush’s father and former telecom minister Sukhram is his grandfather. Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh has been invited but will not attend the reception.
What will Salman Khan eat at Arpita Khan Sharma’s wedding reception in Mandi?
A traditional meal of Dham will reportedly be served to guests, with the non-veg main course having chaa ghosht (lamb cooked in yoghurt), and murgh anardana (chicken stewed in pomegranate paste). For the veg main course, there will be Himachali dal channa (split gram with fennel seeds) and mathri choware (lentil fritters in spinach gravy). Breads will include babroo, chawal ki kadak roti and beduan roti. Sweetened rice or meethe chawal with dry fruits and saffron will be served for dessert.
Arpita Khan and Aayush Sharma had a love marriage and the wedding ceremonies were held November 18 onwards at the Taj Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad, India. (See exclusive pictures: Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan marries Ayush Sharma)
