A chunk of actors got hitched to tie a nuptial bond in heritage venues in Rajasthan. Recently Bollywood stars Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani tied the knot in Jaisalmer. They chose the Suryagarh fortress in Jaisalmer. In the Thar Desert, the splendid hotel was decorated to resemble a 17th-century palace and is known for hosting opulent weddings.

Another biggest Bollywood wedding was that of gorgeous Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal, who entered into holy matrimony at Six Senses Fort Barwara in Sawai in Madhopur district. The splendid wedding was the highlight of the year.
