Ever wondered which celebrity is most likely to tie the knot in 2011? Well, that question has just been answered. Mumbai feels that Bollywood actor Esha Deol and politician Rahul Gandhi are best suited to get married this year.
This was revealed by a survey conducted by shaadi.com, a matrimonial website. Incidentally, the duo beat really tough competition by fellow singletons like Vijender Singh, Kunal Kapoor, Sushmita Sen and even Mallika Sherawat.
Amongst the celebrity couples, Mumbaikars have their hopes pinned on Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor taking the plunge this year. So what if Kapoor declared on national television that D-day is in 2012? One can always hope, right? Other couples in the list included Mahesh Bhupathi-Lara Dutta and John Abraham-Bipasha Basu. Bad news for Chhote Nawab’s little sister though. Soha Ali Khan-Kunal Khemu were voted the least likely to get married.
And proving that we are, in fact world conscious, the wedding the city is looking forward to the most this year, is that of Britain’s Prince William and Kate Middleton’s. In fact, even a Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie wedding (if it happens) was more favoured than the Imran Khan and Avantika Malik shaadi that is happening this weekend.
Reminiscing about the weddings that took place in 2010, Mumbaikars voted Indian cricket captain MS Dhoni’s quiet ceremony with Sakshi Singh Rawat as the best celebrity event.
And finally, when asked whether Mumbaikars think that 2011, is in general, a good year for people to get married, nearly 80 per cent agree, while 95.92 per cent think that they will meet the partner of their dreams in 2011. Happy weddings!
