Veteran music composer Ismail Darbar was one happy dad at his son Zaid’s pre-wedding ceremony. Zaid, who will tie the knot with Bigg Boss winner and actor Gauahar Khan on Friday, celebrated his mehendi function in Mumbai on Thursday night with friends and family.
A video from the celebrations showed Ismail take over the stage and sing a special song from the film Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. However, a few people were quite confused with his choice of song. Zaid and Ismail sang the heartbreak ballad, Lutt Gaye, and Instagram users asked if it was really the best idea to sing such a tragic song at a wedding celebration.
“Who sings this song on a shaadi? Lol,” read a comment. “Shaadi kar rahe ho. Phir kiski mohabbat mei lut Gaye? Kuch bhi (Why are they mourning a doomed romance at a wedding function?),” read another comment. “Shadi mai aisa gana pagal khain k (Such a song at a wedding? They are mad),” commented another person.
Gauahar and Zaid also stepped out of the venue on Thursday to meet the photographers gathered outside and pose for some pictures. They showed off their mehendi, and their colourful blue and pink outfits.
Gauahar recently said in an interview to Hindustan Times that she was not looking for love when she met Zaid, but something about him drew her to him. She added that he proposed after a month of meeting her. “We didn’t have a courtship. I met him, we hit it off and he didn’t think he would propose to someone, marriage was not on his mind. When he asked me, it wasn’t planned. It was in a flow and after meeting me, in literally over a month, he proposed to me. There were no second thoughts,” she said.
