An Instagram user, Zee Aly, decided to share her opinion on the celebrity weddings happening these days and claimed that the recent Bollywood weddings lacked any excitement or variation. Interestingly, his rant on boring Bollywood marriages garnered over a million likes on Instagram, giving his opinion a strong endorsement from the public. The video was released after actor Parineeti Chopra married AAP leader Raghav Chadha in Udaipur. (Also read: Parineeti Chopra follows in Priyanka’s footsteps with a sports day before the wedding)
“Everyone wears similar colors.”
The video opens with the mention of various paneer dishes, while images of various celebrities’ weddings appear on screen. Celebrities featured in the video include Parineeti, Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra, Kiara Advani, Anushka Sharma, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.
The video mentions that all weddings have a similar color palette – white or off-white – and celebrities have even ended up posting similar wedding photos. He also suggested that they have models for the photos – one of the mandap, one where the bride and groom are looking into each other’s eyes, another where they are laughing and one with the sunset in the background.
Is everyone copying Anushka Sharma?
The video was well received with many supporting the views expressed by the Instagram user. Some claimed that celebrities were now copying Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli from their weddings, while a few others were of the opinion that Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone were the latest to wear red for their weddings. “Katrina, Deepika, Priyanka Chopra were the brides who wore red and brides look better in red than white,” wrote one while another commented, “Everyone copied Anushka and Virat .”
Celebrities can choose any theme for their wedding
However, a few social media users also insisted that the theme, color and images of someone’s wedding was their personal choice. “Have you thought about the fact that their wedding is not for your entertainment and that they can wear whatever they want?” Another wrote: “They wear something they like, it’s their own f***ing wedding, let them be and wear what they want.”
