Sabyasachi lehengas weren’t the norm: Mini Mathur drops wedding pics with Kabir Khan on their 25th anniversary
Mini Mathur took to her social media account and dropped stills for her wedding ceremony as she completes 25 years of love with Kabir Khan.
Kabir Khan, a filmmaker, and televison host Mini Mathur,are one of the most popular celebrity pairings. Mini Mathur is an avid social media user and usually shares snippets from her every day life with her fans and followers Mini Mathur posted some breathtaking images from her and Kabir Khan's wedding day, 25 years ago, on her social media accounts to commemorate the couple's 25th wedding anniversary.
Not just the images, but also the caption has our heart! Mini thought back to the simpler times when they had married, before beautiful lehengas, wedding hashtags, and sunset images became commonplace.
Mini's first throwback image features her proudly displaying her mehendi as Kabir Khan sits next to her. Kabir Khan dressed in a black blazer over a white t-shirt and matching slacks, while she wore a red silk Anarkali outfit that is just stunning. She stated in her caption that although their union was celebrated with ethnic rituals from both sides, it was a legally recognised marriage.
Mini wrote, "Hidden gems from a quarter century ago. When Sabyasachi legengas weren’t the norm, with no wedding hashtags or exquisite sunset photos and certainly no bridal entry music.But I do remember being deliriously happy, singing & dancing like a monkey surrounded by Kabirs extensive Khan-daan from Hyderabad, the entire Mathur clan & all our friends.That was a simpler time, with live shehnai and songs written & sung by my family… unencumbered by the trappings of religious differences or any kind of propriety.We signed a register.. but went ahead and happily did all the cultural ceremonies from both sides anyway!"
Talking about how she decked up for her D-day, She further added that for her wedding, she wore her grandmother’s jewellery. She mixed and matched the wedding outfits herself. Her friend Vidya Tikari did her makeup and made a trendy cornrow hairstyle. She shared that the hairstyle created a lot of confusion in the mandap as to which one to fill with sindoor. She wrote,
"I wore my naanis jewellery, my friend @vidyatikari did my make up and made a trendy cornrow hairstyle which created much confusion in the mandap as to which one to fill with sindoor🤣 It took me an hour to take the pins off and i looked electrocuted on my wedding night. I mixed & matched my wedding outfits myself. We invited everyone with a phone call & wedding cards sent by actual post mail.. yeah like with a postage stamp! We weren’t worried about whether we would “make it” in life and had the most fun planning how we could blow up our next paychecks on a travel adventure together."
Concluding the heartfelt note she wrote, "It still feels like 5 years ago honestly.. so can’t fathom how all this time has passed. In all these years, what I have learnt is to focus on our similarities, not our differences. To keep a sense of humour (you need tons of it) and a short memory about things that don’t feel so good (lots of those too) And looks like we made it! Happy 25th @kabirkhankk. PS: Might delete this post if kabir wakes up and doesn’t want the world to see him without his beard. So 🤟🏼#Kamini #25 #BetterTogether"
