Popular actress, Swara Bhasker found her soulmate in Samajwadi Party leader, Fahad Ahmad, and the duo got hitched on March 13, 2023. The couple had a traditional South-Indian wedding, and also had some fun-filled pre-wedding festivities, including haldi, mehendi and sangeet ceremonies. Though Swara and Fahad received a lot of hatred when they announced their decision to tie the knot with each other, nothing could stop the lovebirds from embarking on their forever journey.
On March 16, 2023, Swara Bhasker and Fahad Ahmad hosted a lavish reception in Delhi, which was attended by their friends and family members. For the star-studded event, Swara looked gorgeous in a red-coloured lehenga with heavy golden embroidery and crystal work all over it. Styling her look with a contrasting pink blouse and a red dupatta with a broad multi-hued border, she teamed it with glam makeup and a sleek open hairdo. On the other hand, her hubby, Fahad wore a white-hued bandhgala sherwani with golden embroidery and paired it with a white pyjama.
However, it was Swara's mangalsutra that caught everyone's attention. The actress paid respect to her South-Indian culture with her unique mangalsutra design, which she carried with a long gold chain. Since Swara's father, Uday Bhaskar, is from Andhra Pradesh, she made a little contribution to their tradition with her special gesture. In south-Indian culture, every married woman wears a similar mangalsutra with a gold chain or yellow thread. Also known as Thaali, the mangalsutra consists of two small pendants attached to a chain. Reportedly, the cost of Swara's mangalsutra is worth lakhs.
On March 13, 2023, Swara Bhasker tied the knot with the love of her life, Fahad Ahmad, in a traditional wedding. The actress turned into a Telugu bride as she donned a red-hued saree paired with temple jewellery for her special day. On the other hand, Fahad looked dapper in a striped white kurta paired with a golden Nehru jacket. Upon doing some research, we found that Swara's bridal saree was from the label, Raw Mango, on the brand's official website, the saree was priced at Rs. 94,800.
For the unversed, Swara Bhasker and Fahad Ahmad met each other during the Anti-CAA protest rally and became good friends. However, what began during the rally took the shape of a happily ever after as the two registered their marriage. For the unversed, Swara and Fahad had opted for a court marriage under Special Marriage Act on January 6, 2023, and later, on March 13, 2023, the couple got married in a traditional wedding according to Swara’s Telugu traditions.
