The Love Story: Geeta Basra and Harbhajan Singh

| Published on

There has always been an epidemic relation between the sports industry and the limelight industry. Here's the story of the star off-spinner getting bowled off by the very beautiful lady.    

Geeta Basra is a renowned Punjabi actress and has tried her hands in Bollywood alongside Emraan Hashmi in 'The Train'. Bhajji has always been supportive of his lady love and has even done a cameo appearance in Geeta's latest Punjabi film 'Second Hand Husband'.  

Geeta considers Bhajji to be a very humble and dedicated person. She says, "Harbhajan is very dedicated towards his game and I try and learn from him, how to be dedicated towards my own career. He's my strength and my inspiration".      

Their love story is quite filmy, with Bhajji spotting this London di kudi in a Bollywood song and chasing her for good 10 months before she finally said a yes. A gentleman who is a celeb, is patient and subtly persuasive to woo his girl, what else does a girl needs?     

And that's how the story began...  

"When we went to South Africa and won the T-20 World Cup, I got her number from a friend and messaged her, 'I am so and so and I would like to meet you over tea or coffee'. She didn't reply for three-four days.    

The beginning of the love story...  

Harbhajan remembers, "After we came back from South Africa, all she wrote was, 'Well done on winning the 20-20 World Cup. We are very proud of you and all the best. Keep making all Indians proud'. I said, 'Wow, that's a nice reply to what I asked'."  

They met for coffee and then became friends and after that, they got into a relationship. She made him wait for long and said, 'We will be friends first and then we'll see'. And hence a love story was in the pages.    

The Mehendi Ceremony...  

After a rendezvous with all the girls at a secret bachelorette party, the pre-wedding functions kick-started with the Mehendi ceremony that happened on October 27, 2015. The groom's side celebrated it at their native house in Navi Baradari, and the bride's side chose to celebrate the function at a hotel on the outskirts of Jalandhar.  Geeta sported a pastel pink and lemon yellow lehenga with patchwork by Archana Kochhar and looked absolutely gorgeous in that. Although, the Mehendi ceremony was organized separately by both the sides, Harbhajan, with a few of his friends, dropped by at Geeta's hotel to surprise her. And had a fun-filled Shayari round afterward.    

The Sangeet Ceremony...  

Next, both the sides met at Phagwara where the sangeet took place on October 28, 2015. Geeta dazzled in a dark green lehenga, whereas Harbhajan donned a pastel pink kurta, white churidar, and a hot pink waistcoat.      

The wedding...  

The wedding was a traditional Punjabi affair. The Dulha got ready with his baraat and left for the venue in a Rolls Royce in style. The beautiful bride blushed her way to the venue in another Archana Kochhar creation. It was a traditional red lehenga with heavy golden work on it. Geeta opted for heavy Kundan jewelry from Vadodara-based Narayan Jewellers to match her outfit. It included a nath, haath-phool and a maang tikka. To complement his bride, Bhajji chose an off-white and red sherwani and looked dapper in that.    

The Reception Party...  

The couple hosted a grand reception for the A-listers at The Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi on November 1, 2015. Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh also graced the reception party and blessed the couple.     

Virender Sehwag, chairman of the IPL (Indian Premier League), Rajeev Shukla, cricketers Munaf Patel and Kapil Dev attended the wedding. Varun Aron, Cheteshwar Pujara, and Murali Vijay were a few biggies who were there at the event. According to the reports, there were in total 1000 guests on the list.    

And the love was molded for the eternity.
