Every 'first' post-wedding is special for the newly-wedded couple and the celebrations are high on fervour and love. Similar was Rana Daggubati and Miheeka Bajaj’s first Dussehra post-wedding which they had celebrated with the Bajaj family. For the Dussehra celebrations, Miheeka had looked resplendent in a purple saree paired with an off-white blouse which she had accessorised with traditional jewellery. Rana had complemented his wife in a white kurta and denim.
While we had waited with the bated breath on November 4 to see a glimpse of Rana Daggubati and Miheeka Bajaj’s first Karwa Chauth celebration post-wedding, it is only a day later when our wishes were finally granted. To mark Karwa Chauth 2020, though Rana and Miheeka posted nothing from the celebrations, her mother, Bunty Bajaj posted the much-awaited glimpse of the couple’s festive special look. Dressed in a red saree with a statement necklace, earrings and a nath accentuating her look, Miheeka posed for a happy picture with Rana, who complemented her in casual wear. Bunty Bajaj captioned the picture as "Happy Karwa Chauth. God bless."
While Rana Daggubati and Miheeka Bajaj’s wedding was a labour of love and one helluva party, it was the bride’s sartorial picks for the ceremonies that had stolen the limelight. Needless to say, Rana and Miheeka’s wedding photographs were a sight to behold, but a picture posted by Miheeka with her mom, Bunty Bajaj had brought happy tears in our eyes. After her wedding, Miheeka had posted a beautiful picture with her mom as she had walked down the aisle to marry the love of her life, Rana, wherein the doting mother can be seen putting a kaala teeka on her daughter’s head. Miheeka had captioned it as “Always has my back! @buntybajaj.” (Also Read: Mira Rajput Kapoor Recalls Festive Days With Her Girlfriends, Shahid Kapoor Drops A 'Pretty' Comment)
For the Bhaat Nyotana ceremony, Miheeka Bajaj had looked gorgeous as ever in a red and grey bandhini lehenga, which she had accentuated with stone-cut earrings. Her outfit was very special as it was her mother's bridal lehenga and Miheeka had worn it with such panache on her bhaat ceremony. Keeping her look all glam yet minimal, Miheeka had opted for natural-looking makeup, making for a pure royalty! Sharing the picture of Miheeka, her mother had penned an emotional post, which could be read as "Baht function wearing my wedding outfit, could not stop crying my baby is all grown up. #BAJaoeD." In an interview with the Vogue, describing her emotions on seeing her daughter wearing her bridal lehenga, Mrs Bajaj had said, “She wore my wedding lehenga. When I first saw her in the outfit, I burst out crying.”
In a post-wedding interview with Neha Dhupia for her show, #NoFilterWithNeha, Rana Daggubati had revealed how he met Miheeka Bajaj and thrown some light on their timeline of love. Rana had said, "I know Miheeka for a very long time because my sister and she went to school together. So, I’ve known her pretty much all my life and there’s only a handful of people who move from Hyderabad to Bombay. So, we got talking during lockdown and I said okay, this is right and that’s about it. So, when good things happen, I don’t question too much, I just go. Everyone’s got a timeline, it’s okay. That’s fine." (Also Read: Niti Taylor And Parikshit Bawa Celebrate Their First Karwa Chauth, Actress Shares Stunning Pictures)
