On Tuesday afternoon, Gurdas Maan arrived in Jaipur for Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal’s wedding. Vicky has referred to him as his “idol” in the past.
Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal, both actors, are going to marry on December 9 in Jaipur. A slew of Bollywood stars have been spotted at the Jaipur airport in the run-up to the wedding. Vicky had previously referred to singer Gurdas Maan as his ‘hero,’ and he was also seen arriving in Jaipur. Gurdas was spotted at the Jaipur airport, prompting speculation that he will be playing at the star-studded wedding. “Vicky’s Punjabi side coming through I guess,” one admirer wrote in the comments section of a paparazzi film. “Full Punjabi fever performance,” one person wrote.
The musician, however, stressed that he is attending the festivities as a ‘family friend’ in an interview with India Today, saying, “I have arrived as a friend.” Will be a guest at Vicky Katrina’s wedding as a family friend.” Gurdas has already performed at a number of high-profile weddings, including the reception for Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma in Delhi.
Vicky had previously spoken about his initial encounter with Gurdas. He informed mid-day that he saw Gurdas after the release of Masaan and told him that he has admired him since he was a child, after which he received a $500 note from him. Vicky had said in the interview:”I look upto Gurdas Maan. He’s my idol. He gave me a currency note once and since then I till date have it saved with me in my wallet. I have so much respect for him and in my lifetime if I can even achieve 10% of what he has achieved I would be satisfied as an artist.”
Vicky and Katrina’s wedding will take place in the Six Senses Fort Barwara in Sawai Madhopur district from December 7-9. Several celebs, including Kabir Khan, Mini Mathur, Angad Bedi, Neha Dhupia, Sharvari Wagh, and Shankar Mahadevan, were spotted at the Jaipur airport on Tuesday.
