Actors Kishwer Merchantt and Suyyash Rai may have preferred a low-profile registered marriage but they made sure that their reception was one big, fat Punjabi show. Dancing to the dhol beats, Suyyash and his close friends, including actors Karan Wahi, Ritvik Dhanjani and Surbhi Jyoti, arrived at the venue.
It was a moment worth capturing as the television actors let go of their star status and danced away at their friend’s baarat. At the reception, Kishwer and Suyyash were treated to performances by their families and friends.
Hosted by Karan and Ritvik, the act included performances by Kishwer and Suyyash’s mothers and their friends, including Ritvik’s girlfriend Asha Negi. Not able to resist the dancer in herself, at one point of time, Kishwer joined her girlfriends as she matched steps with them to “Cutipie” from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

But it was her mother’s performance, which overwhelmed Kishwer the most. Talking about it, the actor told reporters, “I laughed and cried a lot today. I had tears in my eyes when my mom danced and Suyyash cried when his mom performed. Also, it was heart-warming to see our friends perform for us. They were ‘supposed to do it at sangeet but it couldn’t happen.”
Kishwer looked stunning in a Gaurav Gupta outfit and complimenting her was her husband, dressed in a cream suit. The couple made the media wait for more than four hours for the photo-ops but made up for it by happily posing for pictures and speaking at length to the reporters.
