We just can't get over these gorgeous pics from Esha Deol's Godh Bharai ceremony!

Sridevi and Jaya Bachchan were special guests at the ceremony, says nani-to-be Hema Malini.

Motherhood is a beautiful phase of a woman’s life and at present standing on its threshold is none other than, the very-talented, Esha Deol. 

Esha had tied the knot with childhood-beau, Bharat Takhtani in 2012 on June 29. After five years of a blissful marriage, the couple is all set to welcome their first child.




Esha has been enjoying this period of her life, sharing cute details, tips on pregnancy and her daily routine with her fans. Take a look…







Today she shared her look for the Godh-Bharai and she is looking simply gorgeous. Here’s what our mum-to-be has chosen for her D-Day…


Esha captioned the pic saying: Getting ready for the Godh bharai ceremony ! Hair done make up done #GodhBharai

The doting grandma-to-be, Hema Malini shared with a tabloid that Esha’s Godh-Bharai in traditional South Indian style took place on Sunday at their bungalow in Juhu but today, on 24th August, a ceremony has been arranged by the Takhtani family at ISKCON and will be carried out as per Sindhi rituals.




She also mentioned that she has invited Sridevi and Jaya Bacchhan for the Godh-Bharai. Here’s what mum Hema said: “All arrangements have been made. We did a simple, traditional Godh-Bharai, South Indian style on Sunday at our Juhu bungalow and today’s Godh-Bharai ceremony has been organized by Bharat’s mother and Esha’s mother-in-law at ISKCON and will be carried out according to Sindhi rituals. From my side, I have invited Sridevi and Jaya ji (Bachchan) because Esha is very fond of Jayaji. Jayaji is like a mother to her and keeps asking about her. They share a very sweet relationship.”

Be it celebrities or non-celebs, pregnancy is a period when each woman wants to feel loved and pampered by her near and dear ones. Whether it's a sister, friend or anyone else, here are a few things to make the Godh-Bharai fun and interesting…

  • A themed Godh-Bharai: Keeping the traditional mood on, you can still have a theme to the Godh-Bharai. If you don’t want to go the conventional way, sky is the limit. Set the theme according to whatever the mum-to-be would like.
  • Go unique with gifting: Come up with unique ideas of gifting or packaging the same old things in a fun way. For example, you could arrange the diapers in the shape of a cake or create a beautiful bouquet out of onesies and other baby clothes.

  • Create lifelong memories: Don’t forget to photo-document the event. These are the memories that every mum will cherish throughout life.
