Actor Aamir Khan's daughter Ira Khan tied the knot with her long-time beau Nupur Shikhare at an intimate wedding ceremony in Mumbai this week, kicking off Bollywood’s celebrity wedding season for 2024.
Instead of making a grand entrance on a traditional ghodi (horse), groom-to-be Nupur Shikhare, who is a fitness trainer, jogged from Santa Cruz in Mumbai to the wedding venue in Bandra. Several videos circulated online in which Nupur and his boys' squad can be seen jogging their way to the wedding venue. The boys jogged for almost 8km to reach the venue.
Ira took to her Instagram and reacted to Nupur's unique style of coming to his own wedding. She shared a collage picture on her stories which she captioned: "He didn't come on a horse. He ran to the venue. And I placed cute posters along the way."
Nupur arrived at the venue in a very cool way. He was wearing a black vest and white shorts as he jogged from his house to the wedding stage.
Aamir opted for a cream-coloured sherwani and a pink turban. Both of his former wives – first wife Reena Dutta and second wife Kiran Rao – were at the wedding alongside his sons Junaid and Azad. They all posed for beaming family pictures.
After reaching the venue, Nupur grooved to the beats of the dhol outside the venue. Reportedly, Nupur and Ira met during the Covid-19 lockdown when Nupur was training Aamir Khan and Ira was living with her father. The duo had an engagement party in November last year.
A day before their wedding, on January 2 night, Nupur Shikhare shared a series of pictures with Ira and wrote on Instagram: "One more day of being your fiancee @khan.ira. I love you so much." In response, Ira Khan posted heart and hug emojis. In the last two pictures, the couple are seen sharing a meal.
