Three days after their grand wedding in Jalandhar, Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra will host their marriage reception at Hotel Taj Palace in New Delhi on Sunday evening. Harbhajan married his long-time girlfriend and Bollywood actress Geeta on October 29.
While Sachin Tendulkar was present with his wife Anjali at Harbhajan's wedding ceremony, it is believed Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take some time out from his busy schedule to bless the newly-married couple in New Delhi. (Wedding Pics | Video)
According to reports, it would be a star-studded ceremony in the national capital and more than 1,000 guests are expected to attend the reception.
Yuvraj Singh, Bhajji's childhood friend, has already missed Punjab's Ranji Trophy match to be present at the celebration party. India's Test captain Virat Kohli and recently retired Virender Sehwag are also reported to be among the guest list. All the three superstars were part of India's 2011 World Cup victory along with Harbhajan.
Bollywood megastars Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra are also likely to be in attendance at the function.
The feisty Punjab bowler, who tormented the best batsmen across the world, is likely to return to Ranji Trophy cricket after the wedding ceremonies are over. The 35-year-old Harbhajan, who was recently part of India's ODI squad against South Africa, has 710 international wickets.
Harbhajan, often controversial for his aggressive attitude on the field, is among a rare crop of bowlers to have taken 417 wickets in 103 Tests. However, he will not be part of the first two Tests against South Africa. The first Test starts in Mohali on November 5.
Geeta Basra was born in Portsmouth, UK in March 1984. She made her Bollywood debut in 2006 in an Emraan Hashmi-starrer Dil Diya Hai. The pair did their second movie - The Train, together in 2007. Basra's career has been confined to music videos. Like Harbhajan, she has interests in film production.
