Kunal & Pranita's Wedding in Pune, India
Kunal Mhaske and Pranita Shinde tied the sacred knot in Pune, while hosting a grand Bajirao Mastani-themed wedding extravaganza in Pune.
Kunal was inspired by Bajirao Mastani and had always been proud of his Maharashtrian routes. Therefore, the theme of his Sangeet was entirely Maharashtrian & was set in the era of Pesha Bajirao. The stage design was inspired by the sets of the Bollywood movie – amber lighting, royal, palatial entrance to the venue with nagadas, diyas surrounding the palace (set) all made it a unique Sangeet in itself.
The menu was a spread of authentic Maharashrian cuisine with Mutton, Tambda Rassa, Pandhra Rassa, etc. with the famous & typical Mastani speciality from Pune. They had a continental spread as well.
The Baraat turned out to be quite a unique experience for the guests, what with a 40 member Dhol Taasha group along with a 50 member band.
The bar followed a “Rajwada inspired” theme, keeping in mind the Bajirao Mastani theme.
Sangeet – Kunal was wearing a Nivedita Saboo – Malhari (Bajirao Mastani) inspired Angrakha – and Pranita wore a Nivedita Saboo lehenga.
Haldi ceremony – Groom was in a Tarun Tahiliani Kurta & Dhoti, while the bride wore a traditional Nauvari Saree.
Wedding – Kunal wore a Sabyasachi Sherwani with embroidered shoes which were specially designed for the first time by Sabyasachi himself; Pranita was dressed in a gorgeous Sabyasachi Banarasi Saree
Reception – Kunal opted for a Dolce Gabbana Classic Black & White suit; Pranita looked glamorous in a Nivedita Saboo Indo-Western outfit.
While the Sangeet took place at Kunal’s bungalow, the Wedding was held at Laxmi Lawns in Magarpatta. The Reception was said to host approximately 8000-10,000 guests and hence, was held at Magarpatta itself.
Performers and Performances:
The choreographer was Piyush Malhotra & the performances were staged on the set which was inspired by Bajirao Mastani. Keeping the theme in mind, Q Events brought Drumline (students of Ustad Taufiq Qureshi) to play the drums and Sonalee Kulkarni (of Marathi movie fame) performed on a couple of Lavani dances.
