A Mumbai Wedding for Hema Malini’s daughter
Ahaana, the younger daughter of actors Hema Malini and Dharmendra got engaged to Delhi boy Vaibhav Vohra in June this year. The engagement was a simple family affair at Hema Malini’s Juhu Bungalow. And like elder daughter Esha whose wedding was a grand affair at The Lalit in Andheri, Mumbai, Ahaana’s wedding in February 2014 will also be a big celebration at a Hotel in Andheri (East). While elder sister Esha had a love marriage with Bandra businessman Bharat Takhtani, it is an arranged match for Ahaana. Her father and Vaibhav’s father, Vipin Vohra the Chairman of Delhi based Continental Carriers have known each other for many years. A few months after Esha’s wedding in July 2012, when Ahaana was visiting Delhi, the fathers set up the meeting. According to friends, Mumbai girl Ahaana was initially hesitant to settle down in Delhi. But after a few meetings with Vaibhav, she was inclined to change her mind. Unlike elder sister Esha who made a foray into Bollywood, Ahaana has preferred to stay away from the limelight and has kept a low profile; she is trained in Odissi classical dance and performs regularly on stage with her mother and sister. She also dabbles in fashion designing.

After Ahaana and Vaibhav’s marriage was fixed, Hema Malini toyed with the possibility of a Destination Wedding in Amby Valley or Goa. But with their huge circle of friends in Mumbai, it was decided to host a home town wedding. Last year, our photo features on Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani’s pre wedding Sangeet and temple wedding generated a lot of interest. So naturally, we are excited about the next celebration in the family, and are looking forward to sharing lots of updates with you.
