According to an inside source, the wedding ceremony will kick-start on February 13 and will last till the 16th. There will also be pre-wedding festivities such as Haldi, mehendi, and sangeet included.
When asked about the remarriage announcement, the source said, “They got married in a court back then. Everything was rushed when it happened. The idea of them having a lavish wedding has been on their mind ever since. They all are very excited about it.”
Other than plans for the ceremony and festivities, it was revealed that the bride will wear a pristine white Dolce and Gabbana gown for the ceremony.
Hardik Pandya and Nataša Stanković Pandya first got engaged in January 2020 in Dubai. They held their court wedding in May 2020. In July 2020, the two had their first child, Agastya.

"I will come (back) when I feel (it's) the right time to play Test-match cricket," Pandya told reporters. He added, "Right now, I'm going to focus on white-ball cricket, which is important, and if time is right and body is fine, I'll give (the long format) a try."
