Dia Mirza thanks the priestess for conducting her wedding rituals
The picture of a priestess performing wedding rituals from Dia Mirza and Vaibhav Rekhi was appreciated by the fans and media.
Actress Dia Mirza got married earlier this week and shared beautiful moments from her wedding with her fans a day later. While the pictures of the ceremony were mesmerising, one, in particular, caught netizens’ attention.
The picture of a priestess performing rituals from Dia and her prince charming, Vaibhav Rekhi, got wide appreciation from her fans and media. The actress delivered an important message against patriarchy by getting an elderly female priest to conduct her wedding rituals.
In a bid to create awareness on gender equality, on Wednesday, the actress tweeted expressing gratitude to priestess Sheela Atta with the hashtags #RiseUp and #GenerationEquality.
Dia tweeted along with a photograph of the priest conducting wedding rituals, and said, "Thank you Sheela Atta for conducting our wedding ceremony. So proud that together we can #RiseUp #GenerationEquality(sic)".
While Dia posted a thank you note way after her fans noticed the female priest, netizens have applauded and regarded her to be, "living feminism in true sense."
Here is what some of her fans had to say about the bold move:
The Bollywood actress married Mumbai-based entrepreneur Vaibhav Rekhi on Monday. On Tuesday, the actress took to social media to post snapshots from her wedding.
"Love is a full-circle that we call home. And what a miracle it is to hear its knock, open the door and be found by it. May all puzzles find their missing pieces, may all hearts heal and may the miracle of love continue to unfold all around us," Dia tweeted along with her wedding photographs.
