Heavily pregnant Esha Deol will not just have a traditional godh bharai, she will also take pheras with her hubby on the same day. Read on to know why.

As her due date inches closer, mum-to-be Esha Deol is gearing up with last minute preparations for the arrival of her little bub.

From a white-themed baby nursery to a gorgeous Grecian maternity shoot to baby shower shopping, it's all in a day's work for this busy expecting mum. All that is left now is a second grand wedding.

Yes, you right that right!

The radiant mum who is about to have a baby shower on August 27, will also have another wedding ceremony on the same day.

And therefore, Deol has chosen a traditional Neeta Lulla outfit so it can worn for the godh bharai ceremony as well as the phera ceremony. But why has she decided to get married again?

Esha and Bharat to marry again, but why?

“Yes, Esha Deol’s godh bharai (baby shower) will happen on the 27th of this month. It will be a small private affair where Esha and Bharat will have a ceremony in which the two will get married to each other yet again but with three pheras," a source close to the Deols shared with a daily.

The source also explained that the real reason for the pheras is not an emotional one, but a cultural one. "It is a traditional Sindhi ceremony. Both, the Deol and the Takhtani family is very excited for the joyous day,” the source added.

Esha's baby shower pheras will be different!

Interestingly, during their actual wedding in 2012, mum Hema Malini had a priest flown down from Tirupati who only spoke in Tamil and therefore, the in-laws couldn't really understand what he said. But these pheras will be different.

Esha told a tabloid, "This time it's a Sindhi priest who speaks Hindi too, so my in-laws will at least understand what is being said."

Events at Esha's godh bharai

The mum-to-be also explained the order of events during this special godh bharai ceremony.

She shared that the priest will say special prayers for the baby, following which the family will apply oil on her forehead and shower her with blessings and gifts. The Takhtani family is also organising a mehendi ceremony followed by some sangeet and dance to celebrate the arrival of the little bub.

Her in-laws are keeping this ceremony extremely private with very few of her close friends being in attendance. Plus, the guests will also be served 'satvik' food as part of the 'chappan bhog' that is being offered to Lord Krishna on the occassion.

All said and done this godh bharai will certainly be quite unique given the addition of the pheras, but not unusual because Deol has so far followed all traditional norms during her pregnancy. But she could so only because of the constant love and support of her doting husband.

"Bharat and I have become as thick as thieves"

Talking about the godh bharai and her husband's involvement Deol shares, "Over the last five years, Bharat and I have become as thick as thieves. Since I’m pregnant, I’m prone to mood swings now but he’s tolerated them and is extremely protective. He’s also my best critic, encouraging me in everything I do. At the risk of sounding filmi, I’ll say I wouldn’t want to change anything, life’s beautiful!”

Well, we sure think so too, as it should be for every pregnant woman. And with such a wonderful event coming her way now we wish her well.
