Sapna Sikarwar, seen as Bimlesh in &TV’s Happu Ki Ultan Paltan, is currently in her hometown, Ratlam, attending her sister Maansi’s wedding. Speaking about the three-day-long wedding celebration, Sapna Sikarwar shares, “Weddings, especially Indian weddings, are a grand affair, with so many ceremonies including Haldi, Sangeet, Mehendi, Engagement, and Wedding Reception so one had to find perfect outfits for each of these. And when it is a family wedding and that of a close relative, it is always exciting and hectic. One not only has to make a lot of arrangements but also be fully decked up for every ceremony. Preparing for my sister’s wedding involved various tasks to ensure a smooth and memorable celebration. It was a hectic month as I did lots of shopping for myself and my daughter Manya after shoots. We had an amalgamation of their cultural attire for the South Indian theme sangeet ceremony. Finding a Perfect Kanjivaram saree was quite a task. I went from store to store, and finally, on the 10th store visit, I found the perfect saree for her Sangeet ceremony. With God’s grace, everything went smoothly and very well. Following the traditional Hindu customs, we started with the Mehendi ceremony, a burst of colours and joy. The air was filled with the fragrance of henna as intricate designs unfolded on her hands. As the Mehendi dried, it left behind beautiful patterns and the essence of a day filled with love and anticipation for the wedding. The next day featured the Haldi ceremony, a day painted in hues of turmeric. Our friends and family gathered, smearing the golden paste on the bride, symbolising blessings and prosperity for the couple. Everyone looked beautiful and happy, shining bright in yellow. In the evening, my sister’s Sangeet was steeped in the vibrant traditions of South India. All our family members wore traditional Mysore silk sarees and embellished jewellery, while the men wore dhotis and silk shirts. Hats off to me for making my husband dance to Bollywood remixes like ‘Phir aur kya chahiye, Aapke aajane se, Rafta Rafta,’ and many more in front of all the relatives (laughs). It was a memorable moment dancing together after many years. My husband and I spent days rehearsing, and the moment was extremely special, with everyone cheering and applauding.”

She adds, “The final day of the wedding festivities was packed with events: an engagement ceremony in the morning, agni pheras in the afternoon, and a reception party in the evening. I particularly loved my appearance at the reception; my purple lehenga was a marvel of traditional beauty. Its rich fabric boasted intricate embroidery and sequins, complemented by elegant jewellery and accessories. The purple colour scheme lent an air of sophistication to the entire ensemble. It was no surprise that my sister looked radiant and joyous—it was a momentous day for us all. Witnessing her younger sibling’s wedding is an extraordinary milestone for any older sister. The sight of her in her bridal finery filled me with overwhelming emotion. Seeing my sister’s happy countenance as she married the man of her dreams brought me immense joy. I am confident that he will only add to her happiness. Though I couldn’t help but feel emotional during her Bidaai, I was also filled with happiness as I watched her embark on this beautiful journey with her soulmate.”
