A Sneak Peek at Katrina Kaif-Vicky Kaushal’s Destination Wedding in Rajasthan
The wedding festivities of Bollywood actors Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal are all set to take place at Six Senses Fort Barwara in Sawai Madhopur district, Rajasthan from December 7-9.
While the guest list includes other celebrities like filmmaker Kabir Khan, producer Amritpal Singh Bindra and director Anand Tiwari, it was the wedding venue that generated a lot of fascination.
Originally home to a Rajasthani royal family, the 14th-century fort in Rajasthan’s famous tiger district, Ranthambore, has been “substantially” transformed into a luxury hotel.
The wedding functions will start from Tuesday at a fort, which has been turned into a luxury hotel in Sawai Madhopur.
The original Barwara Fort was built in the 14th century, and the restoration of this 700-year-old fort took over a decade, incorporating two palaces and as many temples into the fortified fort. Now converted into a hotel, it has 48 one-bedroom suites designed in a contemporary Rajasthani style. Interestingly, the cheapest costume in this palace costs more than ₹75K per night on weekdays. The most exclusive costume costs the hotel more than ₹5.3 lakh per night.
Six Senses Fort Barwara Hotel in Rajasthan is a three-hour drive from Jaipur and a 30-minute drive from Ranthambore National Park.
There are 48 suites ranging from 753 square feet (70 square meters) to 3,014 square feet (280 square meters). The east wing overlooks the countryside and the west wing offers views of Barwara village and beyond, with each accommodation designed in a contemporary Rajasthani style.
Sawai Madhopur District Collector Rajendra Kishan had said on Friday that a meeting of district administration officials was held to discuss law and order arrangements for four days during the celebrity wedding. .
Keeping in mind the situation of the coronavirus pandemic, Kishan also said that instructions had been given that all guests had received the two doses of vaccination.
“As far as we have been informed, there will be 120 guests for four days from December 7 to 10. The RT PCR test is compulsory for those who have not taken doses of the vaccine,” he had said.
