Comedian Kapil Sharma and his fiancée Ginni Chatrath are sharing ‘real’ flavours of Punjab and South India with all Bollywood stars, top politicians and bureaucrats by sending them special bar-coded invitation boxes containing an assortment of ‘dry fruit panjeeri’, South Indian dessert ‘Mysore Paak’ apart from roasted cashew squash, green tea and other baked delights for their forthcoming celebrity marriage.

While the couple has selected Jalandhar-based oldest and biggest sweet shop—Lovely Sweets— and its sister concern Lovely Imagination for their hand-picked invitation sweet box, ceremonial thali and platters, trousseau packaging and other wedding gifts, they have booked Phagwara-based Cabana Spa and Resorts for two days on December 12 and 13.

The ‘Pooja Thali’ for a religious ceremony slated to be held at Kapil’s Amritsar-based home on December 10 has also been ordered from Lovely Sweets.

A team of three Chinese chefs are slated to land at Cabana on Friday where a royal mix of selected Punjabi, Chinese and Italian food would be served to a galaxy of guests.

Kapil is going to tie the knot with local Hardev Nagar-based resident and his college days’ friend Ginni Chatrath on December 12.

Kapil Sharma and Ginni are sending more than 200 Jalandhar-made and packed invitation boxes to Mumbai-based film celebrities.

Another lot of 200 such boxes are being dispatched for New Delhi-based India’s top politicians and bureaucrats.

“Apart from other items, we have prepared and packed over 250 invitations containing a bar-code to ensure ‘fool-proof’ security and to keep wedding gate crashers at bay. Ginni and her family had come to see our new sweets collection and they had finalised the items about two months ago after the samples were sent across Mumbai for Kapil’s nod,” said Saishav Mittal and Sonal Mittal, co-founders of Lovely Imaginations and partners of Lovely Sweets.

“More than a dozen chefs from other countries such as Thailand and the UK are on the way for the marriage,” said Manoj Chodha and Anil Chodha, the managing directors of Cabana Spa and Resorts popularly known as Doaba’s ‘Celebrity Destination’ where marriages of ace cricketers Harbhajan Singh and Mandy were solemnised and where top stars such as Shah Rukh Khan, Dharmendra and Katrina Kaif had stayed a couple of times.

“A strong ‘Punjabi Tadka’ will be there as all major Punjabi delicacies will be served. Apart from this, we are going to experiment with new concepts like serving the food via conveyor belts,” said Chodha brothers while talking to The Tribune.
