For the unversed, Chiksa is a herbal bath powder with almonds, rose petals, turmeric and other exotic ingredients powdered together. This powder, mixed with water and made into a paste, is used by the bride from days ahead of the wedding for that sparkling dazzle on the wedding day. The bride and groom wear yellow clothing and get smeared with a paste of turmeric and sandalwood in rosewater in Chiksa ceremony. 

Gauahar and Zaid met through mutual friends during the lockdown and fell in love. In November, Zaid popped the big question to the actress and on December 1, the couple announced their wedding.
