The Mehendi Ceremony of the Ash-Abhi wedding will take place at the Rais’ La Mer in Bandra. “As per tradition, the ceremony will be held at the bride’s house in Bandra. It will be a small, private ceremony with only close relatives and friends of the Rais invited while some members of the Bachchan family may also drop in,” sources close to Rais said.

Aishwarya Rai will get henna for her mehndi ceremony from Sojat, a place in Rajasthan. Over 15 kg of local henna will travel to the Rai’s place where the Mehendi ceremony will take place. The henna packets would be sent five days prior to the wedding day.
“We have received orders from an agent in Mumbai for the Bachchan wedding and we are preparing special packets for them. We will send these packets to wherever they decide to get married,” said Nitesh Agarwal, a Sojat-based mehndi trader.Sojat and its surrounding areas in the Pali district of the state boast of the most intensive henna cultivation in India. Up to 90 percent of Rajasthan’s commercial henna production is in this area.Over 100 henna processing units are in operation in Sojat.
