India’s 2011 World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh, who is set to marry fiancee and Bollywood actress Hazel Keech, reached Parliament to invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other ministers for his wedding scheduled to be held on November 29-30.
Yuvraj and Hazel got engaged in a low-key affair in Bali, Indonesia earlier this year. But according to reports, the star cricketer has planned a grand wedding, wherein all the who’s who from the field of Bollywood, sports and politics are expected to be in attendance.
Yuvraj’s father had revealed that the couple will have a “small” wedding. The wedding is reported to be an intimate affair with 60 guests, which will include Yuvraj’s close friends, family and fellow cricketers from both the Ranji team and the national team. “We are holding the sangeet, mehendi and reception on the same day, followed by a gurdwara shaadi, after which we will take Hazel for ‘darshan’ of our guru Baba Deep Singh Ji,” Yograj Singh had said.

The traditional gurdwara wedding will take place in Chandigarh on November 30 which will be followed by another wedding as per Hindu rituals in Goa on December 2. Close friends and relatives are expected to be at this function.
The sangeet and reception will be held in Delhi on December 5 and December 7, respectively. While the venue for the sangeet is a farmhouse near Chattarpur, the reception will be at a city hotel.
Yuvraj is soon set to join the league of married Indian cricket stars. The likes of Suresh Raina, Harbhajan Singh and Rohit Sharma tied the knots with their respective partners pretty recently.
