VARANASI: Bollywood stars' dancing at high-profile weddings has since
long ceased being news. But when a top star assures to attend the
wedding of an auto-rickshaw driver's son to express his gratitude, it's
certainly a welcome gesture and a cause for added rejoicing for the
family members of the bride and groom.
Aamir Khan came down to
Varanasi to attend Rajeev's wedding - son of Ramlakhan Paswan alias
Nathuni, an auto-rickshaw driver - scheduled on Wednesday.
in December 2009 when Aamir Khan had visited Varanasi and booked an
auto, belonging to Nathuni. Masquerading as a commoner, Aamir had
travelled across the narrow bylanes of Varanasi. During the trip, Aamir
had succeeded in locating his maternal grandmother's house, thanks to
Nathuni's knowledge of the city. Incidentally, the masquerade was a part
of promotion for Aamir's film '3 idiots'.
A native of Usari
village in Chakia area of Chandauli, Nathuni, who runs an auto-rickshaw
to earn livelihood, has still not forgotten that how he was sitting
outside the Cantonment railway station, when a stranger booked his auto
and indulged in a friendly interaction. Nathuni said that when he
recognised him as Aamir Khan, the latter asked him to keep his visit a
secret and help him in searching the place of his maternal grandmother.
After Aamir returned to Mumbai, a messenger visited Nathuni's residence
with two air tickets and a golden ring. Nathuni visited Mumbai and
enjoyed the premiere of Aamir Khan's '3 Idiots' in December.
more than 2 years later, Nathuni visited Aamir's residence in Mumbai on
April 14, to hand him an invitation card of his son's wedding. Rajiv,
Nathuni's son, has completed his MBA recently. "Initially, Aamir had
assured to send his blessings through a video CD, but recently he
confirmed that he would be attending the marriage function in person,"
With this confirmation about the arrival of a
'special guest', the celebrations at Nathuni's house as well as the home
of Rajiv's to-be-wife, Vijeta, got tinged with added excitement. The
bride, Vijeta, just couldn't bring herself to believe that she would tie
the knot in the presence of Aamir Khan.
Even as both the
families were busy with preparations for the wedding function on
Wednesday, to take place in a lawn in Mehmoorganj area, the anticipation
of meeting a Bollywood star was quite palpable.
