Instead of the traditional horse bringing the groom to Shilpa Shetty’s doorsteps, Raj Kundra has decided to ride an elaborate chariot.

It will set the tone for an elaborate yet exclusive Shilpa — Raj Kundra marriage on Nov. 22 where, according to a close friend of Shilpa, “Tarun Tihiliani has designed the wedding outfit that no bride in Bollywood or outside has ever worn before”.

The guest list for the Nov. 22 wedding is restricted to Shilpa and Raj’s families. Raj’s parents and sister are expected any moment from London and his relatives from Ludhiana and Amritsar are expected to arrive closer to the wedding.

The wedding will be conducted fully in the Bunt tradition, according to the Mangalorean community that the Shettys belong to.

‘Not without my sister’

“Shilpa’s mom consulted the astrological documents and found that the next auspicious date was not before April 2010. Shilpa’s first response was, ‘Not without my sister’ But now that Shamita is well on the way out of ‘Bigg Boss’ Shilpa doesn’t mind the rush, though she would be shooting until the very last moment for the Indo—Chinese production ‘Desire’ in Hyderabad,” says a very close friend of the Shettys.

The last thing Shilpa wants to do at the moment is to work. “But a commitment is a commitment,” says Shilpa’s friend.
