The royal wedding of Ravindra Jadeja and Rivaba Solanki took place in the morning on April 17, 2016 at the Seasons Hotel, Rajkot. Jadeja looked no less than a Rajput king in a light-coloured sherwani, which he accessorised well with a turban, kalgi and a neckpiece.
The bride too looked gorgeous in a traditional red and green outfit.
Reportedly, Jadeja arrived at the wedding venue in the same Audi car which was gifted to him by his father-in-law.
While everything happened just perfectly, there was one event because of which Jadeja’s wedding ran into controversy. Some of his relatives fired gunshots in the air to mark the celebrations after which police arrived at the venue. Fortunately, no one was injured because of this. However, it is illegal to fire even a licensed gun unless it is done in the case of self-defense.
While none of his cricketer friends were a part of his wedding, many were a part of the reception party which was held in the evening on the same day of the wedding.
