Almost two months month after the wedding, Salman Khan congratulated Katrina Kaif on national television. During the Bigg Boss 15 finale, Rubina Dilaik and Rakhi Sawant danced to Katrina Kaif's popular track Chikni Chameli from the 2012 movie Agneepath. After the performance, the show's host Salman Khan looked into the camera and he said, "Katrina, shaadi mubarak ho ." In another segment of the show, former Bigg Boss contestant Shehnaaz Gill teased Salman Khan about Katrina's wedding - the actress married Vicky Kaushal last December in Rajasthan.
During the Bigg Boss 15 finale, Shehnaaz Gill, who earlier used to call herself "Punjab ki Katrina Kaif," said that she is now "Shehnaaz Gill of India." Speaking of Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's wedding, Shehnaaz said, "Sir aap khush raho bass. Sorry, main zyada toh nahi bol rahi (You just be happy please. Sorry, did I speak more than necessary)?" She then told Salman, "But single zyaada achhe lagte ho (You are better off being single)." To which, Salman jokingly added, "Haan, jab ho jayunga toh zyada achha lagunga. (I'll look even better when I'm single)."
Much was made of Salman Khan's absence at Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's destination wedding. Salman and Katrina are long-time collaborators and the actress is perceived as being very close to his family, especially his sisters Arpita and Alvira. Turns out, the family weren't even invited to the wedding. Arpita Khan Sharma, who is also a close friend of Katrina Kaif, clarified several times that the family did not receive invites. "We have not been invited. So, how would we go?" Arpita told ETimes. In an interview with India Today, she said before the wedding, "We haven't got any invite for the wedding." Meanwhile, Salman Khan's personal bodyguard Shera's agency reportedly provided extra security at Vicky-Katrina's super-secret wedding. Salman himself was spotted flying out of Mumbai ahead of the wedding - he was headed to Riyadh to lead the Dabangg Reloaded concert.
Katrina Kaif married Vicky Kaushal on December 9, after dating for two years. They hosted big, fat wedding festivities in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan.
