Narendra Modi To MS Dhoni To Amitabh Bachchan, VIPs Attend #BhajjiKiShaadi

If you thought the Harbhajan Singh – Geeta Basra wedding ceremony was the last of the festivities, you thought wrong, my friend. In fact, the couple’s reception ceremony held at Taj Palace in Delhi was more lavish than their wedding ceremony, if you can believe it. Yes, the event went off without a hitch, with more stars and celebs and cricketers in attendance to wish the happy couple on their nuptials.

If you remember, Harbhajan had given his wedding invite to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi too. However, it wasn’t clear whether the PM could take some time out of his super busy schedule to attend the reception. But, PM Modi did grace the high-profile wedding reception and blessed the couple.

As can be expected, the venue and its surrounding ares were heavily secured for the PM’s visit. Though Modi arrived late for the ceremony, he blessed Bhajji and his new wife and then interacted with a few of the VIP guests, before taking his leave.
