Our very own bachelor from the Indian cricket team, Bhaji, has gotten hitched to his longtime girlfriend Geeta Basra on 29th Oct! Finally ! It was a typical Punjabi wedding at a gurudwara at Jalandhar, as Bhaji is a Sikh. For all those who don’t know, Geeta is a Punjabi too and has spent her childhood in England before moving to Mumbai. With the who’s who of the cricket industry in attendance, the big fat Punjabi wedding was a gala affair. From the cricket fraternity the event was attended by Sachin and wife Anjali, Parthiv Patel, RP Singh, Yuvraj, Ms Dhoni and wife Sakshi, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli amongst others. Even the PM Narendra Modi and ex PM Manmohan Singh attended the reception.
