Beginning the wedding countdown 25 days before they become one, on December 1, 2020, Gauahar Khan and Zaid Darbar had revealed the date of their marriage with the pictures from their pre-wedding shoot. Zaid and Gauahar’s official statement could be read as “The year 2020 has been anything but ordinary and our love story through it all has been nothing short of extraordinary! It gives us immense joy to announce that we are tying the knot and embarking on a journey of forever.

We seek your blessings & love & are eternally grateful for the constant support & the outpour of warm wishes we have received. We hope for every soul to find its mate and pray for every heart to find its reason to beat. All our love, Gauahar and Zaid.”
One week ahead of their wedding, Gauahar Khan and Zaid Darbar released the pre-wedding video, in which the to-be married couple can be seen dancing on the song, Just You And I by Tom Walker. For the pre-wedding shoot, Gauahar picked a Mrunalini Rao ensemble which is a multi-coloured lehenga in raw silk with a mustard blouse and fully hand-embellished koti. Zaid complemented her in a golden long kurta and white pyjamas with a red printed bandhgala jacket. Zaid and Gauahar captioned their post as “1 week to go #GAZAbkahaiDin @zaid_darbar.”
Before announcing the wedding, Zaid Darbar and Gauahar Khan had jetted off to Dubai with his siblings to spend some quality time before tying the knot. To begin the wedding countdown, Zaid’s sister, Anam Darbar had posted a throwback picture with Zaid and Gauahar from their Dubai getaway, in which the trio had twinned in white. Anam had captioned the post as “& the countdown begins! MERE BHAI KI SHAADI HAI. Zaidu? You’re getting married!! I can’t believe it! @gauaharkhan you’re a blessing in his life!

Reportedly, Gauahar Khan, 37, and Zaid Darbar, 25, have an age difference of 12 years but denying the number, the former had revealed in an interview with Etimes that the number has come out wrong. Revealing that Zaid is a few years younger to her but 12 is not the number, Gauahar had stated, “Let me clear this, the age difference that has come out is wrong. 12 years is wrong and it is very easy for people to make it a news. But it is wrong. Yes, he is a few years younger to me but 12 is not the number. He is way more mature than I am and he has brought the sense of balance in my life. Judging and passing comments that the age gap can act as a barrier in a relationship is very easy, but for Zaid and I we have a similar kind of understanding and maturity. So, age never matters or hinders in our relationship.” Elaborating on the same and answering if the age difference is a barrier in their relationship, Zaid continued, “No, I feel we both are mature. We are equal in that terms. There are a few things which she makes me understand. We both balance each other.”
The to-be husband and wife, Zaid Darbar and Gauahar Khan had celebrated the festive week before Diwali with the Darbar family and the latter had flaunted her engagement ring in the picture. While Gauahar had swept us off our feet in a gorgeous green heavily embroidered suit, Zaid had completed her well in a zig-zag Aztec printed kurta. Sharing the happy pictures with Zaid, Gauahar had written, “Mere tumhare sab ke liye happppppy Diwali !!!!! From US to alllllll of you! @zaid_darbar This is my fave Diwali Bollywood song, which ones yours ???? #gaza #HappyDiwali #BeSafe #Spreadlove.” Zaid had commented, “Mashallah Mashallah Aapke saat toh har gaana accha lagta hai.” (Also Read: Sara Ali Khan Reveals What The Lockdown Phase With Her Mother, Amrita Singh Had Made Her Realise)
