A video from Bollywood stars Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa's wedding is going viral (for all the right reasons). After hearing Rajkummar talk about Patralekhaa, their 11-year relationship and all, you get to the most unusual part. Watch the video first.


THE HIGHLIGHT: In the short video, Rajkummar fills Patralekhaa’s maang. Then he breaks away from tradition. He says, "Tum bhi laga do." Sindoor, that's what Rajkummar was asking Patralekhaa to apply on his forehead. As per Hindu tradition, the groom fills the maang of the bride with sindoor during the ceremony. Towards the end of the video, you can see both Rajkummar and Patralekhaa filling each other’s maang with sindoor. 

THIS TIME, IT’S DIFFERENT: From Sabyasachi’s mangalsutra campaign to Alia Bhatt’s Kanyamaan ad, out-of-the-box ideas during Hindu ceremonies have mostly sparked controversies all the time. But this time, it was quite a surprise to see folks on Instagram applauding the actors for what they did.

Unlike the previous incidents, this one received comments like “the cutest thing ever”. Here are some of them:

“Raj, it's been 11 years but I just feel like I know you since a lifetime and not only this lifetime. I am sure it has been many lifetimes,” Patralekhaa said while exchanging their vows. Rajkummar responded with, "It’s been 11 years but it still feels like we have just started dating. We are soulmates and I truly, truly believe that."

Then, in what reminded many of Virat Kohli’s famous ‘my wife’ remark on his wedding day, Rajkummar too said, “Thank you for being my wife!”
