New Delhi: At a grand ceremony in Patna this evening, Lalu Yadav's eldest son Tej Pratap will tie the knot with his fiancee Aishwarya Roy, and the celebrations are on in full force. Younger brother Tejashwi, it seems, is enjoying himself the most. The former Bihar deputy chief minister has posted a video on his Facebook page, of him dancing with elder brother Tej Pratap.
While Tejashwi is sporting a brown kurta, his brother, the groom, is decked in beige with a white gamcha wrapped around his head.
And then, the two, let loose, huge smiles plastered across their face.
The 26-second video, titled "Desi boys on the floor...", has been liked 11,000 times, has 58,000 views, and shared over one a half thousand times. All this, in just an hour of being posted.
Tej Pratap Yadav's fiancee is the daughter of six-time Rashtriya Janata Dal lawmaker Chandrika Roy and a cabinet colleague of Lalu Yadav in many governments.
The Yadavs have ensured that the wedding is a grand affair. A member of the Yadav household said the guest list runs into several thousand - another suggested it could touch 10,000 - and includes top political leaders from across the country.
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who ended his party's grand alliance with Lalu Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Party and the Congress, is expected to set aside their political rivalry and make it to the wedding. So will Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, the senior BJP leader who played an instrumental role to get central agencies probe Lalu Yadav, sons Tej Pratap and Tejashwi and daughter Misra Bharti.
The wedding is taking place at the veterinary college grounds in Patna, at the same place where Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi's son was married after threats from Tej Pratap Yadav.
When Sushil Kumar Modi hosted a reception for his son's marriage, Lalu Yadav had made it a point to show up and spend two hours to bless the newly-weds. Mr Modi is expected to reciprocate that gesture.
Tej Pratap Yadav, the eldest of nine children, is a first-time lawmaker and was health minister until last July, when Nitish Kumar dumped the RJD and formed a new government with the BJP.
