The Hush Post: By now everybody has repeatedly seen Virushka’s picture-perfect video of their marriage in Italy. All had some beautiful things to say about the wedding — from wedding trousseau to floral arrangements to bride-bridegroom’s looks, everything, including the background music which was played when Anushka walks in to take the wedding vows. By now the song has become a must-do in every would-be bride’s wedding wish list. Not many know the much-popular song now, it wasn’t noticed as much in the film ‘Phillauri’ though, that was played in the background ‘ din shagna da chhariya, aao sakhiyo nee verra..’ was a promise made by the bride Anushka to the Ludhiana-born Bollywood singer Jasleen Kaur Royal.
