The Yuvraj-Hazel Wedding Is Such A Great Story That Even The Amul Cartoon Got Into Action

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!

When Yuvraj Singh married Hazel Keech

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.

He is a survivor

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.

The gurudwara ceremony

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 the Goa wedding too

There was a second wedding in Goa, this time with Hindu rituals. This is how the bridegroom made his entrance.

Virat and Anushka shook a leg

Many celebrities from the cricket world and from Bollywood were in attendance. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma were there to shake a leg too!

Everyone had fun

Clearly a good time was had by all!

The newly weds

This one just makes everyone go Aww!

Amul's take on the wedding

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).
