Recently, actor Dia Mirza tied the knot with businessman Vaibhav Rekhi, in an intimate ceremony that looked straight out of a fairytale.
While it was hard to take our eyes off the gorgeous bride, what still caught our attention was that instead of a priest, a priestess officiated the wedding ceremony.
Dia Mirza took to Twitter to share information about Sheela Atta, the priestess who performed her wedding ceremony, while advocating for "generation equality".
This definitely goes against patriarchal norms where rarely, if ever, are priestesses in charge of officiating ceremonies. And the internet certainly celebrated this break from tradition:
I am sure she conducted the rituals with pure dedication. May their tribe grow #womenempowerment Congratulations 👏— Jayanti Dey (@jdey63) February 17, 2021
