Actor Parineeti Chopra and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Raghav Chadha got married in Udaipur today. While the couple's friends and family flew in for the big, fat destination wedding, Parineeti's Chopra cousin Priyanka Chopra and filmmaker Karan Johar had to give the event a miss. Filmmaker Karan Johar, who was likely to check into the wedding destination on Sunday alongside designer Manish Malhotra, had to skip the event due to a family emergency. A source close to the development was quoted telling Zoom TV, "Karan had every intention to attend the wedding as he is very fond of both Parineeti and Raghav. He was set to fly down to Udaipur on Sunday when a family emergency forced him to cancel the intended wedding festivities. Sad, because he had planned all his clothes for the functions so elaborately."
Apart from Karan Johar, Parineeti Chopra's cousin Priyanka Chopra was also absent from the wedding festivities. Her mom Madhu Chopra, however landed in Udaipur on Friday and has been an active part of all pre-wedding festivities ever since.
On Saturday however, Priyanka Chopra sent big love to her cousin via Instagram. In a post, she wrote, "I hope you are as happy and as content as this on your big day little one...Always wishing you so much love...#Newbeginnings."
