Udit Narayan On Son Aditya's Wedding
Written by Subhash K . Jha

 The happiest father  in Mumbai has  got to be singer Udit Narayan whose son Aditya, a popular singer and  compere himself, got married on December 1.

Says  the beaming  dad, “December  1 is my birthday.It’s not  as if we planned my son’s wedding to coincide with my birthday. But  when December  was  mentioned by  the astrologer as  an auspicious day  for marriage, we said, why  not?  From now on we can have two celebrations on the same day.”

 Udit  expresses  regret that he couldn’t invite   all his friends  for  the  happy occasion. “I have just one son. I wanted his  marriage  to be much more lavish.But the  Covid has taken the  joy  away  from all  celebrations. In fact I wanted my son to wait  until this  pandemic was  over  before getting married. But  Shweta’s family and Aditya were keen that they get married now.My son and Shweta were in a live-in relationship for ten year. I guess it was time for  them to  make it official.”

Udit says he  did his  best  he could with  his  guest  list. “For  the wedding  reception since we were only allowed  50 guests at one  venue we  hired three sections of   the  ITC Maratha  and  invited  50 guests at each  of  those  venues.Si we could invite 150  guests.The wedding took place at  a  temple.Earlier we  had  the  tilak ceremony  at  the Raheja Classics and then the mehndi  and sangeet with a limited number of invitees. I feel sad about not being able  to invite everyone. But  I promise to invite  all my friends  after the  Covid  threat  is  over.”

Udit was  happy to hear from the Prime Minister. “Modiji wrote me  a letter after I  invited him for  the wedding. So did Bachchan Saab and Ambaniji. The Defence minister Rajnathji called me to wish  us for the wedding. We are  fortunate to have the blessings  of everyone.”

The singer  also feels  fortunate  to have Shweta  for his daughter-in-law. “She is softspoken. She hardly speaks. And when she  does we  have to strain our ears to hear her. We had received many marriage  proposals for Aditya, and very  tempting ones.When he told my wife  and I  that he wanted to marry the girl he had been with for so many years I  was  happy.”

Udit feels  blessed. “Our family is blessed. On the career front too I am happy to tell you that I’ve sung for  Varun Dhawan in  Coolie No1. Twenty years  ago I had sung for Govinda  in  the same film .”
