Dharmendra and Hema Malini's younger daughter Ahana Deol got engaged to enterpreneur Vaibhav Vohra on June 24. The two got engaged at their Mumbai residence. As the ceremonies took place at their home, it seemed like quite a family affair where only close family members and friends were present, including her fathe Dharmendra, mother Hema Malini, sister Esha Deol, brother-in-law Bharat Takhtani.... and ummm....that's it.
Where were Ahana's three brothers? Where were Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Abhay Deol? Too busy to attend? Recently, Sunny and Bobby were spotted partying with dad Dharmendra to celebrate the success of Yamla Pagla Deewana 2. While their half sister's ring ceremony was also no less than a grand celebration, the three brothers were conspicuous by their absence.
That can be a coincidence, what with the two of them shooting for their respective films (if there are any, ahem ahem). But what about their family? Did we spot Sunny Deol's wife and kids or wife and kids of Bobby? Well, no.
Last year (July 2012), when Esha Deol got married to diamond merchant Bharat Takhtani, Sunny and Bobby were not present. Coincidence or the not-so-good old family feud that kept the brothers away from the family function?
Not just on the sangeet and other ceremonies preceding the wedding, the two skipped attending the marriage as well. Her wedding ceremony that took place at the Hare Rama Hare Krishna temple in Juhu had an eclectic mix of B-Town celebrities, spiritual gurus, industrialists, close friends as well as family of Dharmendra and Hema Malini.
Amongst those seen at the ceremony were Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Nita Ambani, Subrata Roy, Rani Mukerji, Anu Malik, Fardeen Khan, Vinod and Kavita Khanna and Vyjayanthi-mala (who specially flew down from Chennai to bless the couple).
However, Abhay Deol, who is known to be close to Esha, was present at all the functions.
Here's how the brothers skipped the much talked about engagement:
