Abhishek BachchanAbhishek-Aishwarya sangeet ceremony: Celebrations at Prateeksha

The grand celebrations for the biggest Indian celebrity wedding of the year has begun.

The countdown to the much-awaited wedding of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai has begun on Wednesday night with the sangeet ceremony at the Bachchans residence Prateeksha.



While the media was kept across the road in front of the decorated and festooned Prateeksha in Juhu, a number of guests were seen arriving at the swanky bungalow. The most noticeable moment of the evening was when Aishwarya's brother Aditya arrived.

Amitabh Bachchan Amar Singh and Anil Ambani came out on the gate of the bungalow to greet Aditya. Amitabh, dressed in a shimmering golden sherwani, stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Singh and Ambani as the trio clapped their hands and welcomed Aditya to the venue.

It is reliably learnt that music composer trio Shankar Ehsaan and Loy will be conducting the music during the sangeet ceremony. The trio will reportedly perform a number of songs from the movies featuring Abhishek, Aishwarya and even Amitabh. The chartbuster song 'Kajra Re', which was composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy themselves, will be the high point of the evening. Sources say Abhishek, Aishwarya and possibly Big B would shake their legs to this number.

Among other performers will be Sikander Kher and Goldie Behl (both very close friends of Abhi) who will dance to a medley of songs. In fact, Sikander's mother Kiron Kher is learnt to have choreographed the ladies dances for the sangeet ceremony. The men's dances have been choreographed by Karan Johar and Shiamak Davar.

The Sangeet ceremony will be followed by Mehendi ceremony. The big wedding will take place on April 20.
