Reel-life turned real-life couple Aiman Khan and Muneeb Butt tied the knot in November last year. The star duo tied the knot in an intimate nikkah ceremony with close friends and family in attendance.
This was followed by individual mayouns, a wedding party, mehndi, baraat and reception. In a recent appearance on the Samina Peerzada show Speak your Heart, Khan spilled the beans on her extended nuptials.
While many Twitter users termed it a “marathon wedding”, others called the artists out for wasting money on over-the-top and extravagant festivities.
“We received a hefty amount of criticism over our long wedding but we didn’t pay any heed to the haters. People are meant to say bag things and so we did not ponder over much on the critics,” shared Khan.
“From where did you gather the courage for your wedding events that started off with an engagement and went on for a month until the final reception?” questioned Peerzada.
Responding to her, Khan revealed the couple did not plan on having such a lavish wedding initially. “We did not plan to have a pomp and showy engagement ceremony but almost all of Minal (her sister) and my friends are in showbiz and so they had to be on the guest list. No one in mine or Muneeb’s family has had such a big engagement.”
Aiman revealed the couple hosted a total of 10 events, running from November 17 until December 2.
“Just like the engagement, we had not planned a month-long wedding either. But, it all happened itself. Muneeb and I were extremely tired by the end of it too but we enjoyed ourselves a lot.”
She continued, “We had decided not to have any extra events, other than the mehndi, baraat and valima. But, several ladies gatherings were held during the time and we always celebrated my birthday in the same month.”
