Talking about her experience on the show, India’s top fashion designer, Anita Dongre said, “Shooting for Yaari Dosti Shaadi has been a very special experience for me. Being a part of someone’s special day and making it perfect has always been a dream. The experience was a roller coaster of excitement, drama and romance. The memories of shooting for this show are extremely close to my heart and there is so much I’m taking back. Weddings have gone beyond the cultural etiquettes that have been practised for centuries. We have had instances of cricket matches being played at a mehendi ceremony, a bride runaway on a bike and a sangeet in a Parsi wedding. People are picking and choosing from the variety of cultures embodying them as a form of personal expression.”
Anchor Aalekh Kapoor said, “Being at weddings is a very positive feeling. It is a beautiful occasion, everyone’s happy and I like to absorb and feed off that energy, and Yarri Dostii Shaadi on NDTV Good Times is all about that”
Sharing her excitement, anchor Harleen Sethi also added, “Yarri Dostii Shaadi brings you the best of wedding rituals from different religions and cultures along with mad friends, crazy stories, funny relatives and all the last minute action. Shooting for this show has been the most entertaining and fun-filled part of my career.”
