Chandigarh: Harbhajan Singh and long-time girlfriend Geeta Basra exchanged wedding rings at a lavish ceremony in Jalandhar on Wednesday evening. The veteran off-spinner will formally marry Basra in Phagwara on Thursday.
More than 500 hundred friends and family members attended the ring ceremony. Harbhajan and Geeta will host a reception in Delhi on November 1. Apart from his Team India teammates like Yuvraj Singh and Virat Kohli, Bollywood celebrities like Amitabh Bachhan, Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra are likely to attend. There is news that Prime Minister Narendra Modi may bless the couple and attend the reception ceremony.
The fingers of the feisty bowler, who tormented the best batsmen across the world, performed a ‘different’ act that was perhaps long overdue. The 35-year-old Harbhajan, who was recently part of India’s ODI squad against South Africa, has 686 international wickets.
