In movies, they do not really need any guidance with those suave moves. Someone dances, and the rest pick up the dance step improvising new steps cheek by jowl! And yes, everyone is in a great sync, proving unbelievable chemistry. No, this does not happen in real weddings. You will find all kinds of funny steps by uncles and aunties, and cousins and friends. Real life has more funny sequences than flawless performances.

In movies, the bride/groom realises at the last minute that the person they are about to get married to is not the right one. Realising the truth, and giving a heartwarming speech, changes are made anytime till a couple of rounds around the vedi. Relatives and friends do give the shocking reactions by dropping puja thalis, dilated eyes and quick head turns. But, everything settles down in a few minutes. And, no one has any qualms accepting the change. Expecting this in real life can be dangerous. Relatives will get involved in the drama, more than they would if it was their own child’s wedding.

With Kal Ho Naa Ho, started the tradition of family performances at the weddings. We hire choreographers, we pick best of couples foreseeing performances like Hum Saath-Saath Hain or Monsoon Wedding. Unfortunately at the time of wedding, no one on the stage is in-sync, and none of the steps are done that perfectly. So, all those family dances we see in the movies, are big fat lies!

All the on-the-spot improvisations of songs that we see in Bollywood movies can never happen in real life. All the instant Navrai Majhi (English Vinghlish) and Gal Mitthi Mitthi Bol (Aisha) are at no time happening in real life. Rather, we make a list of top Bollywood songs, which we play at the weddings.

#5. Your exs do not join the celebrations

Thinking of sending your wedding card to your ex? D not do this until and unless you have a plan in your mind to run away. It may happen in movies, but it never happens in real lives. Break-ups are not romanticised in real life weddings. So sending your wedding card to your ex, and expecting them to join in can be a little dangerous. Rest assure, they are not happy about it.

Weddings are always big in Bollywood movies. But this does not happen in real lives. So, if you dream of your wedding to be something like Hum Saath-Saath Hain, you are most likely to get disappointed. Such long and tedious functions are usually not there, and even if you plan for such functions, they are not so happily joined in by relatives. No one has so much time to spend on one wedding. Normally, these functions are restricted to two or three small functions.
