Khandala (Maharashtra), Nov 22 (IANS) Actress Shilpa Shetty's dancing skills are well-known, and her groom-to-be Raj Kundra is no less a dancer -- he surprised everyone at their sangeet ceremony by imitating late pop legend Michael Jackson's moves.
'Raj and Shilpa gave a beautiful performance. Shilpa danced to the song 'Mere hathon mein naun naun chudiyan' and Raj did a Michael Jackson performance, which was beautiful,' said Kiran Bawa, Shilpa's friend and business partner.
Shilpa is tying the knot with Raj, a London-based businessman, Sunday at Kiran's Khandala bungalow. 'Instead of being a businessman Raj should have taken acting as his career,' added Kiran.
Shipa's wedding is one of the most talked about in tinsel town but the sangeet ceremony Saturday was a small affair and attended by close friends and family.
Shilpa's sister Shamita teamed up with newcomer Jackky Bhagnani for a skit.
Jackky, son of film producer Vashu Bhagnani, also performed on the charbusters such as 'Dhan te nan' from the film 'Kaminey' and the title song of 'Om Shanti Om'. He too was impressed with Raj's dancing.
'He was superb while giving that Michael Jackson performance,' said Jackky.
However, Shilpa's father, Surendra Shetty, was missing.
Explaining the absence, Shilpa's mother, Sunnanda, said: 'He was not well, so he couldn't attend the get together. It's sad that he couldn't come, but he will surely be there for the wedding.'
Bhangra pop singer Daler Mehendi was also there and set the stage by belting out his hit numbers like 'Na na na na na re' and 'Bolo ta ra ra' among others. He also sang the title song of 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom'.
The sangeet ceremony ended at around 2.30 a.m.
