Friends Host Virtual Sangeet Party Amid Lockdown

WEDDINGS: An Indian wedding is undoubtedly one of the grandest affairs one can attend. With a variety of rituals and parties, a shaadi wedding is nothing short of magical. With the imposed lockdown period this has sabotaged many wedding plans as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps the globe.

So, while some couples are getting married on a video call, others are waiting for the lockdown to end. And, one such couple to postpone their wedding is Delhi-based Gazal Bawa and Hemant Virmani, reports Indian Express. However, despite the unexpected change of plans, their friends surprised them with a ‘Virtual Sangeet Party’.

In the fun video, several of their friends can be seen dancing to the beats of popular Punjabi tracks.

“We were very shocked and surprised because there were like some 35 friends from all over the world who were a part of this. It was overwhelming and we just feel so happy and so blessed that we have these people in our lives,” the bride-to-be was quoted saying.

How cute is that!
