Few weddings attract as much attention as a beloved cricketer’s wedding. If that wedding is that of a cancer survivor to a film star, it becomes even more noteworthy for the average person. So when Yuvraj Singh married Hazel Keech, everyone wanted to know more! Who, what, when and how much!
He is one of India’s best loved cricketers and one of most glamorous in the game. Hazel Keech is a British Mauritanian model, film and TV actress. The two were engaged last year and married on 30 november 2016.
Apart from his pyrotechnics on the cricket ground, Yuvraj’s is an inspiring story for other reasons as well: he was diagnosed with a cancerous lump in his lung in 2011. He fought this battle with cancer and returned to world cricket.
There were two wedding ceremonies. The two young people tied the knot at a traditional ceremony at Fatehgarh Sahib near Chandigarh to solemnize the wedding with Sikh rituals. Hazel Keech is now officially Gurbasant Kaur. Yuvraj was seen sporting a full beard and the traditional Sigh pagdi.
There was a second wedding in Goa, this time with Hindu rituals. This is how the bridegroom made his entrance.
Many celebrities from the cricket world and from Bollywood were in attendance. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma were there to shake a leg too!
Clearly a good time was had by all!
This one just makes everyone go Aww!
Amul ads are known to have a topical, witty take on most current affairs and they had this to say about the Yujraj (prince) becoming the Dulheraja (bridegroom).
