Mumbai: Cricketer Yuvraj Singh will soon tie a knot with actress Hazel Keech on November 30 with Punjabi rituals at a gurdwara. But, his father Yograj Singh will not be attending his wedding ceremony which is quite shocking.
Yograj Singh is a cricketer and actor in Punjabi movies, who had divorced Shabnam Singh when Yuvraj and Zorawar were little kids since then Shabnam is looking after her children all alone and she is also looking after all the arrangements of the wedding. Yograj had re-married and is presently living in Panchkula with his wife and has two children from his second marriage.
Father Yograj went on to say that: “I had told Yuvraj’s mother that I will not attend the wedding if it is solemnised at any gurdwara or Dera sect, or involves any religious guru. I only believe in God and not religious gurus. I do not want to cause any discomfort to anybody. This will be the only function that I will attend and not the others planned at Delhi and Goa in early December as I am busy. My son called me with much respect and my name is on the invites.”
He further went on to say that: “I had even asked Yuvraj, if his mother was comfortable or not with my joining the wedding, but he humbly requested me to be a part of the function.”
On the other hand, Yograj don’t support lavish weddings and said that Shabnam had lots of money but it was her personal choice to arrange the marriage in a gurdwara and invite less people in the marriage but she should spend wisely and carefully.
While giving blessings and praising his daughter-in-law, he added: “She is an angel. Even though she has been brought up in the western culture, she is well-rooted and gives importance to values and traditions. I know she will bring a positive change in the family and bring brothers and sisters close to each other.”
