Sonakshi Sinha is marrying her longtime partner, actor Zaheer Iqbal, today, June 23, in Mumbai. The wedding festivities began earlier this week, with much-needed pomp and splendour. Before the holy knot ritual, the bride was seen conducting Puja with her father, Shatrughan Sinha. The actress emanated a wedding glow as the paparazzi photographed her.

Mumbai's popular paparazzo Viral Bhayani shared the video and wrote, “Dulhaniya is so happening, looks like she is having fun wait for a quirky pose of sona and how cutely and with humbleness Pooja ji did Namaste to all Media friends .”

Sonakshi looked comfortable and gorgeous in a blue salwar kameez paired with netted chunni. She was photographed going out of a room wearing a tidy hair bun.

Although her parents, Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam, did not attend the ceremony, they were subsequently spotted with the bride and groom at home. Shatrughan publicly blessed the couple following days of speculation that he was upset with Sonakshi for failing to notify him of her wedding preparations.

Sonakshi and Zaheer will marry civilly on June 23, the groom-to-be's father, Iqbal Ratansi, has informed. In a recent interview with Free Press Journal, Zaheer's father revealed that their marriage will not include any Hindu or Muslim ceremonies. "It will be a civil marriage."

Zaheer's father also refuted claims that Sonakshi could convert to Islam following her wedding. "She is definitely not converting. Theirs is a marriage of hearts in which religion plays no role," he said, adding, "I believe in mankind. Hindus name God Bhagwan, whereas Muslims refer to him as Allah. But, at the end of the day, we're all humans. My blessings are for Zaheer and Sonakshi."
