And there’s talk not only about this wedding’s whopping cost (the rumour is that it’s Rs 50 crore!), it’s also about the prizes won by guests at the ‘Bingo Night’, one of the pre-wedding celebrations held at Grand Hyatt on Saturday night. Like the Abhishek Bachchan show on the small screen, the ballroom was turned into a Bingo station, where people indulging in fun gambling. But the prizes were real; and guess what the prizes for the first three winners were? An Audi-4, a BMW- 3 Series and a C-class Merc! Unbelievable, isn’t it?
