“I have known Lali ji (Varun’s mother Lali Dhawan) for a long time; she used to come to Sunita ji’s (Kapoor) residence during Karwa Chauth where I used to apply mehendi. Anil ji doesn’t like the smell of mehendi but Sunita ji always applies henna on the festival. In fact, I’d also applied mehendi on Srideviji’s palms on her first Karwa Chauth. So when it was time for Varun-Natasha’s wedding, it had to be me. Lali ji even told me to recreate my traditional intricate designs for the family wedding,” shares a proud Veena.
Speaking concerning the wedding ceremony, the artist had additionally obtained a number of designs from the bride Natasha, who needed her mehendi to be in sync along with her wedding ceremony day ensemble. “Everyone else had utilized mehendi a day earlier than Natasha. I did not know that she was a designer however when she shared a number of stunning designs and concepts, I adopted the identical. Natasha received her toes hennaed a day earlier than the ceremony and, on the day of the ceremony, we utilized mehendi on her arms,” she informs.
Ask her as to why did the bride select to go gentle with the mehendi and Veena attributes it to her style. “She is the bride; it has to be her choice. I strongly believe that the bride should be happy and she was, so I am glad. Varun also loved her mehendi. In fact, he also got a bit applied on his palm. Lali ji had told me the previous day to start the mehendi with an ‘Om’. So, for Varun, it was only ‘Om’ and a ‘N heart V’,” she smiles.
