Ira Khan, daughter of Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, married her long-term partner Nupur Shikhare in a lavish ceremony in Udaipur on January 10th 2023. The high-profile wedding was attended by the who’s who of Bollywood and was marked by emotional scenes as Aamir Khan gave away his daughter at the Christian-inspired ceremony.

Aamir Khan Shows Off Mehendi at Festivities

The wedding celebrations kicked off earlier in the week with a vibrant mehendi ceremony attended by both sides of the couple’s family. Aamir Khan was seen happily showing off an intricate floral design on his palm, indicating how much the perfectionist actor embraced the festive occasion.

Ira’s mother Reena Dutta also marked the occasion with a special Instagram post declaring:

“I have your back…always”

Celebrities Join Powerful Musical Performance at Sangeet

The sangeet on January 9th was a glitzy affair that saw several Bollywood stars join in performances with the bride and groom’s families.

Aamir Khan’s ex-wife Kiran Rao took to the stage for a duet with their son Azad, dedicating the classic Bollywood song ‘Phoolon Ka Taron Ka’ to Ira. Their harmonious performance was widely shared on social media and clearly indicated the close ties still shared between Aamir’s family.

Up-and-coming music arranger Mikey McCleary, who had collaborated with Aamir on the soundtracks of ‘Taare Zameen Par’, ‘Ghajini’ and ‘Delhi Belly’, provided tunes for the ceremony.

Scenes of Emotion as Ira Walks Down Aisle

On January 10th, Ira Khan tied the knot with Nupur Shikhare in a Christian ceremony held at the luxurious Six Senses Fort resort in Udaipur.

In an emotional gesture, both Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta were seen walking a nervous Ira down the aisle. As vows were exchanged and rings presented, sniffles and tears could be spotted amongst immediate family seated front and center.

Aamir was later sighted adjusting carpet creases in the background whilst chatting to guests, indicating his enduring humbleness despite his A-list status.

As the ceremony concluded, guests showered the newlyweds with pink flower petals as they exited to start a new chapter of their lives together.

Extravagant Parties Set to Continue

Celebrations are set to continue in coming weeks, with a lavish Mumbai reception planned for later January. Over 2500 guests are expected, spanning generations of Bollywood royalty including the likes of:

  • Shah Rukh Khan
  • Salman Khan
  • Akshay Kumar
  • Deepika Padukone
  • Ranveer Singh

Nine cuisines will be served in order to cater for the diverse palates amongst invited celebrities, including European, Pan-Asian, Awadhi, Rajasthani, Gujarati, Konkani, South Indian and Chinese delicacies.

The Power Couple’s Love Story

Fitness trainer Nupur Shikhare met theatre director Ira Khan through common friends in 2018. They started out as gym buddies, but friendship and affection grew over training sessions until they officially started dating the following year.

The couple have kept followers up-to-date via regular social media posts dotted with affectionate captions like “You make me smile” and “I really appreciate you“. The good-looking pair have earned themselves the tag of ‘Bolly’s Gen Next Power Couple’ from media houses.

Last February on Promise Day, Nupur went down on one knee at Ira’s favorite location – the Bandra Bandstand seaside promenade in Mumbai. Hidden photographers captured emotional shots as teary Ira accepted her beau’s proposal, before celebrating with hugs.

Wedding planning then went into full swing, with Ira excitedly announcing in August 2022 that venue booking had commenced.

Why The Emotional Connection?

In the week’s leading up to the big day, Nupur Shikhare revealed some touching reasons for the depth of feeling experienced at the event:

  • He decided to run the entire 8km route from his hotel to arrive at the venue on time after his car broke down “as I didn’t want to delay our marriage”
  • Ira’s pet cat was a centerpiece throughout proceedings as “she played a major role in our relationship milestone moments”
  • They exchanged thoughtful vows they had written themselves based on their life journey together

Body language experts commented on the “rawness” and “Depth of love” evident in photographic memories that will be treasured for years to come.

The adoration Ira and Nupur so clearly share looks set to power them forwards as their paths truly combine into one life voyage. We wish the glowing couple all the best as the party continues!
