Shilpa feeling low on her Sangeet and Mehendi day

Shilpa Shetty is all set to tie the knot with her fiancé Raj Kundra on Sunday, but the actress is feeling quite low today, on the occasion of her Sangeet and Mehendi ceremony. The reason is that Shilpa’s dad would not be able to join daughter on her Sangeet ceremony at her best friend Kiran Bawa`s bungalow in Khandala, as he is recovering from Malaria in hospital.

A source close to Shilpa said, "Poor Shilpa, her sister Shamita and their mother Sunanda are all feeling very low as her dad Surendra Shetty was suddenly taken to the ICU on Thursday night at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri.

However, he will hopefully be there tomorrow on the wedding day for Kanyadaan.

"Thank God everything was diagnosed overnight and her dad was given the correct treatment on time or he wouldn`t have been able to do the Kanyadaan. If that had happened, Shilpa would have been devastated. Even now, the whole thing has cast a shadow on the marriage proceedings, but Shilpa is happy that her dad will be able to give her away!" the source added.

Nevertheless, reports reveal that family members will be performing something special for her, and dance performances will rock the show. Special highlight of the evening will be a dance performance by Raj and Shilpa on the romantic song ‘Teri Ore’ from ‘Singh is Kinng’. Pop singer Daler Mehendi is also expected to add to the cheer with his act.

A source confirmed, "Shilpa will be wearing a hot pink silk kaftan with zari work and Swarovski crystals done by Tarun Tahiliani (who has also designed the wedding sari).”

Raj will also be casually attired. Shamita will be wearing a gold and peach salwar kameez designed by Manish Malhotra today, and for the wedding, an anarkali-cut salwar-kameez in mauve and blue by Tarun Tahiliani.

On the other hand, talking about her outfits, Shamita Shetty said, "I have barely had time to get my outfits stitched for Shilpa`s wedding as I left BB house only a week ago. For Shilpa`s wedding I have two options a lehenga or a sari.”
