2020 was not an ordinary year. The year saw some of the biggest testing times for the human race, due to the pandemic owing to the novel Coronavirus. However, the lockdown and social-distancing norm did not stop celebs to get hitched. The year saw many successful and glamorous singles of Bollywood, as well as the small screen, settling down.
We look at some of the weddings of 2020, which made headlines:
Aditya Narayan-Shweta Agarwal:
Udit Narayan’s singer-TV host son Aditya Narayan got married yesterday, December 1, to his long-time girlfriend Shweta Agarwal in Mumbai. The nuptials took place at Mumbai’s famous ISKCON temple in Juhu.
Aditya Narayan shone as the groom in his royal sherwani and wedding safa. Shweta looked like the quintessential bride in her soft pink embellished lehenga, paired with statement jewellery.
On December 3, Aditya shared the first picture from their wedding and wrote alongside, “I will find you. And I will marry you.”

Sharing two dreamy pictures of themselves, this is what the couple wrote to tell the world about their wedding- “The year 2020 has been anything but ordinary, & our love story through it all has been nothing short of extraordinary! It gives us immense koi to announce that we are tying the knot and embarking on a journey of forever! Keeping the current scenario in mind, we will be celebrating the big day with our family in an intimate ceremony.

Neha Kakkar-Rohanpreet Singh:
Neha Kakkar took all her fans by surprise when she announced she was getting married to singer Rohanpreet Singh. At first, many weren’t entirely sure if this was really happening or if it was another publicity stint/prank like the one that Neha and Indian Idol host Aditya Narayan played on the audience when they hinted that they were going to get married.
Neha, however, did get married on October 24, 2020, and it was a treat for all her fans and social media followers to see pictures from all her wedding functions.
Kajal Aggarwal-Gautam Kitchlu:
On October 30, Kajal Aggarwal tied the knot with entrepreneur beau Gautam Kitchlu. The traditional ceremony was performed at a South Mumbai hotel with only close pals and family in attendance due to the prevailing scenario.
Kajal Aggarwal was resplendent in her red heavily embellished lehenga, traditional jewellery which included the red chooda and golden ‘kaleerein’. Gautam Kitchlu, too, looked dapper in his ivory sherwani with a baby pink dupatta. The whole theme of the wedding was soft, mellow colours, and the couple looked like they were made for each other!
Rana Daggubati-Miheeka Bajaj:
Rana Daggubati tied the knot with Miheeka Bajaj at the family-owned Ramanaidu Studios in Hyderabad on August 9, 2020. The Baahubali actor sprung a surprise on his fans and almost everyone in the industry when he made his relationship with girlfriend Miheeka Bajaj official on May 12, 2020.
