On October 29, the couple exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony with a gold, red and white colour theme.

Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan says: “Here’s wishing my friend Harbhajan Singh and his beautiful bride Geeta and very blessed and happy life together. Welcome to the club guys.”

Cricketer Yuvraj Singh tweets:

Mumbai Indians’ captain, Rohit Sharma, also sends his blessings on Twittersphere:

Bhajji and Geeta’s grand wedding celebrations will conclude with a star-studded reception in Delhi on November 1.

Not only are B-town celebrities like Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra on the guest list, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also rumoured to make an appearance!

The epic reception will most likely turn out to be a cricketers’ party, as Bhajji’s teammates like Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli and some from South Africa are expected to attend.

Harbhajan, 35, and Geeta, 31, met in 2007 through a common friend and reportedly hit it off right away.

In the following years, Geeta had been spotted a few times at the same places where Harbhajan were shooting for reality TV shows, but had always insisted they were just friends.

Finally in 2012, the couple was seen more and more in various events, like concerts, parties and friends’ gatherings.

“He is a very strong headed person and that shows on-screen (in matches).”

“He got success at an early age and still he is so grounded and humble. He loves his game. I want to learn that from him.”
