'Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt had planned to tie the knot in South Africa,' reveals Neetu Kapoor, says 'Since 2 years we were planning to go there'


Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt's wedding was an intimate ceremony. Despite being public figures, the actors wanted to keep their special day private affair. After much speculation, they tied the knot on April 14 at their residence in Bandra. Now, in an interview with an entertainment portal, Neetu Kapoor spoke about her son's much-talked-about wedding. She told that Ranbir and Alia didn't want a 'circus'; hence they kept it 'very very quiet'.

"They said 'we don't want a circus, we don't want to tell anyone, we just want to do it.' The circus before that, with memes and other such things, becomes nerve-wracking. So we kept it very very quiet, we would say it's engagement. We couldn't even shop, there were a few people who were appointed to pick and drop stuff because if we go then everyone will know the wedding is happening. We were in a box, we couldn't do anything. But then of course everybody got to know once the lights went up and the Sabyasachi outfits arrived," Neetu told.

She further revealed Ranbir and Alia wanted to get married in South Africa and had been planning for the same for 2 years. "Everything was beautiful. The best part was that the baarat-- it went from the fifth floor to the seventh floor. We were performing bhangra on the passage, we were just going crazy. I wanted to have a ghodi (horse at baarat) and all that, but then also they felt that if the ghodi will come then the paps will come. So I said forget that. Ranbir and Alia had planned so much that 'we'll go to South Africa, we'll do a recee,' and eventually, where did they do it? At their home. Since two years we were planning we'll go here, and we were seeing pictures. We were going absolutely nuts. But this was the best, and she looked so beautiful," the actress shared with the portal. 

In the same interview, Neetu shared that there were only 40 guests for the wedding and 40 for the post-wedding dinner party. She also said that the Ladkewalas including Riddhima Kapoor, Samara Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Rima Jain, and others gave a surprise dance performance. Songs like Mehendi Hai Rachnewali, Dholida, Cutie Pie and Tenu Leke Main Javanga were played.
