Nearly 20 kg of “organic mehendi” powder has been provided by the town of Sojat, in Pali district, Rajasthan, for the wedding festivities of Bollywood actors Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal, which are due to start on Tuesday.

Kaif, 38, and Kaushal, 33, are getting married after dating for almost two years. While the couple have remained silent on their relationship, according to sources familiar with the development, the wedding festivities – starting with sangeet and mehendi followed by the wedding ceremony – will be held from December 7 to 9.

Besides the mehendi powder, 400 pieces of mehendi cones have also been sent for the couple’s wedding, which is to take place at the Six Senses Fort Barwara Hotel, Sawaimadhopur, Rajasthan. Sojat is famous for the cultivation of mehendi.

“We provided organic mehendi to the event management company for the wedding functions. We provided mehendi for free as a gift from Sojat, Pali, ” Nitesh Aggarwal, owner of Sojat-based mehendi processing and manufacturing company Natural Herbal, told PTI.

Aggarwal said it took them almost 20 days to process organic mehendi, especially for marriage. According to sources, the couple will be celebrating the mehendi ceremony with both sides of the family. Vicky has a large, loving and warm Punjabi family by her side and her chacha, chachi (paternal uncle and aunt), mom and mami (maternal uncle and aunt) are all eager to officially welcome Katrina into the family. Preparations for the wedding have been in full swing for some time now. It will be a joyous occasion for both parties, with their friends and family coming together to celebrate the couple’s special day, ” the sources said.

They added that Kaif’s family is also specially descended from London – his mother, sisters and brother as well as a group of close friends. “Although it will be a private and intimate affair, the celebrations will always be grand and they have spared no expense to make sure they make their special day a memorable one,” the sources said. The families of the two stars touched down in Jaipur on Monday evening and headed straight for the wedding venue in a convoy of more than 15 cars. The distance between Jaipur and the hotel is approximately 120 km.

Close friends and colleagues of the couple, including longtime collaborating filmmaker Kaif Kabir Khan, his actress wife Mini Mathur, director Vijay Krishna Achara of ” Dhoom 3 ” and ” Thugs of Hindostan ” fame, the actor-couple Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi arrived Tuesday morning for the wedding festivities.

Kaushal’s younger brother’s girlfriend Sunny Kaushal Sharvari Wagh and his “Shiddat” co-star Radhika Madan have also arrived.

The luxurious property, a fort converted into a hotel, is guarded by private security personnel and bouncers. Extensive security measures are in place in and around the hotel.

B-town’s grand wedding naturally attracted media interest, with various stories being speculated about the elaborate three-day festivities, such as the Sufi theme for sangeet, no camera policy, guests must sign an NDA, or the couple selling their wedding photo rights for huge amounts.
