“I have arrived as a friend."
Singer Gurdas Maan is one of the many celebrity guests who will be attending actors Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal’s wedding.
The singer was surrounded by the paparazzi as he landed in Jaipur and was asked to give a message to the Bollywood couple.
In response, Gurdas said: “Lots of love to the couple.”
He also wished Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal a long life together.
On the insistence of the paparazzi and reporters, Gurdas Maan sang two lines from his song ‘Teri Ghori Jeeve’ for them.
Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal are set to tie the knot on December 9, 2021, at the Six Senses Fort Barbara in Rajasthan.
The pre-wedding ceremonies are reportedly underway.
Gurdas’ arrival at the Jaipur airport ignited rumours that he would perform at the highly-anticipated wedding.
However, the singer said that he is attending the function as a family friend, and not to perform.
Gurdas Maan told reporters at the airport:
“I have arrived as a friend.
“Will take part in the wedding of Vicky and Katrina as a friend of the family.”

The wedding is expected to attract many Bollywood celebrities and high-profile figures including Neha Dhupia, Angad Bedi, Sharvari Wagh, Radhika Madan, Kabir Khan, Mini Mathur and Anaita Shroff Adajania, among others.
The upcoming wedding has been rife with rumours and reports.
The most recent report surrounding the couple is that they have been approached by an OTT streaming platform to air their wedding footage.
The couple has allegedly been offered a staggering Rs. 100 Crore (£10 million) for their wedding video.
If they accept the deal, the wedding will be filmed and edited by the streaming platform to be presented as a feature film.
It is unclear if Katrina and Vicky will accept the deal, especially given the couple’s secrecy around their big day – not to mention their relationship.
In a bid for privacy, Katrina and Vicky have implemented strict measures, including a ‘no phones’ policy for all guests at the wedding.
Fan clubs of the actors also shared a picture on social media of a gift hamper with a note requesting guests to not bring phones to the wedding.
The note is speculated to have read:
“You are finally here! We hope you enjoy the road trip from Jaipur to Ranthambore.
“Enjoy the refreshments that we have put together. Sit back, relax and brace yourselves for the fun-filled, exciting adventure.
“We request you to please leave your mobile phones in your respective rooms and refrain from posting pictures or using social media for any of the ceremonies or events.
“We can’t wait to see you!”
Although Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal have not publicly acknowledged their wedding plans, the couple has happily posed for photographers.
Katrina’s family was earlier photographed in Mumbai as they visited the Kaushal residence ahead of the wedding functions.
