The reason behind Radhika Merchant donning a black thread throughout her pre-wedding

In Hindu culture, a black thread holds traditional significance. It is believed that when a black thread is tied around a person's ankle or wrist, it protects them against the evil eye. It is regarded as a protective measure to ward off the effects of negativity as black colour absorbs negative energies. According to astrology, the black thread has an association with Lord Shani and it attracts good luck and prosperity. Now that everyone's eyes were glued to the lady of the hour, Radhika Merchant, she opted to wear a black thread on her wrist throughout the extravagant celebration.

The second pre-wedding soiree of Anant and Radhika witnessed an extravagant event, the Masquerade Ball, at the shores of Cannes. The glamorous event took place at the prestigious Chateau de la Croix des Gardes on May 31, 2024. For the bash, Radhika opted for a custom-made Versace dress in hues of blue and silver and complemented it with a rare Lorraine Schwartz opal and diamond necklace. However, not many know that the gemstones in her jewellery had a profound significance, with opal being Radhika’s birthstone and diamond being that of her soon-to-be-husband, Anant.
