Parineeti Chopra-Raghav Chadha Wedding Live Updates: Arvind Kejriwal, Bhagwant Mann Wave To Cameras At Airport

Parineeti-Raghav wedding: The chief ministers exited the airport together

Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann at Udaipur Airport

Actor Parineeti Chopra and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Raghav Chadha will marry in Udaipur this weekend. The bride and groom arrived yesterday to a grand welcome at the airport which was decorated for the ladkiwale, baraatis and guests. The wedding will take place in the Leela Palace while the baraat will travel from the iconic Lake Palace by boat. The bridal party was spotted taking a boat across Lake Pichola to the hotel yesterday. A mehendi ceremony was held yesterday and today's programme includes a haldi and sangeet. It appears that Priyanka Chopra, who is Parineeti's cousin, may or may not attend the wedding - her Instagram activity this morning indicated that she was still in Los Angeles but she could still take a private plane. Some of Raghav Chadha's AAP colleagues and other political leaders landed in Udaipur today, among them Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab chief minister Bhagwant Mann. Also on the guest list are Karan Johar and Manish Malhotra, who has designed the bride's outfits. The pre-wedding festivities began earlier this week in New Delhi. An ardas was held at Raghav's residence followed by a Sufi night at which the guest list included cricketer Harbhajan Singh. Parineeti Chopra and Raghav Chadha got engaged in New Delhi in May. Priyanka flew from Los Angeles to attend.

Will the bride's cousin Priyanka Chopra attend the wedding? Yesterday, unconfirmed media reports suggested she wouldn't. Priyanka lives in Los Angeles with husband Nick Jonas and daughter Malti Marie - Nick, currently on tour with his band, almost certainly won't attend. Priyanka's recent social media activity also seems to indicate that she will be absent from the festivities.

On Saturday morning - a time when earlier reports this week said she would be landing in India - Priyanka shared an Instagram post of herself and Malti Marie playing with animals at a petting farm in Los Angeles
