The couple are getting married in Nagaur’s Khimsar Fort, Rajasthan. The grand palace had been decked up with lights as the mehendi and sangeet ceremonies were held on Wednesday.
Smriti travelled to Jodhpur on February 8 with daughter Zoish Irani to attend the festivities at the fort, where over 250 guests have joined in to celebrate the nuptials. Several pictures from the mehendi and sangeet ceremonies show that Shanelle and Arjun had an extravagant celebration.

Smriti wore a red and golden saree for the festivities, and was all smiles in one of the pictures posted on a fan page on Instagram. Shanelle wore a red bridal lehenga, while Arjun was seen in a white sherwani in their wedding photo that has been widely shared on social media.
