Cricketer Yuvraj Singh married actress Hazel Keech in a lavish ceremony. While everyone was happy with the marriage, it was Yuvraj Singh’s father Yograj Singh who was absent in the ceremony.
Yograj, who is a Punjabi film actor and former cricketer did not attend the marriage on November 30 at a gurdwara in Fatehgarh Sahib in Punjab.
“It is my misfortune that I will not be attending the traditional wedding of my son … I had told Yuvraj’s mother that I will not attend the wedding if it is solemnised at any gurudwara or dera sect or involves any religious guru. It’s destiny, I will not go. I only believe in God and not religious gurus,” Yograj said.
He also said people should spend judiciously at marriages and avoid spending crores while commenting on the money being splurged on weddings.
“Yuvraj’s mother Shabnam has a lot of money and it is her choice how she organises the wedding, but she should spend carefully,” he said.
Yograj and Shabnam divorced years ago. After his parents divorced, Yuvraj chose to stay with his mother.
Yograj was all praise for his would-be daughter-in-law Hazel and said that she is an “angel”.
“Even though she has been brought up in a western culture, she is rooted and gives a lot of importance to values and traditions. I know she will bring a positive change in the family and bring the brothers and sisters close to each other. Yuvraj and Hazel are like parents to their younger brother and sisters,” he said.
