Earlier, Lalu Yadav was granted three-day parole to attend his son's marriage though he had sought a five-day parole. Lalu was so happy that he told Aishwarya on the phone, "Bahut subhagyashali ho tum".
Among the baratis included Akhilesh Yadav and his wife Dimple Yadav, Union Minister and LJP Chief Ram Vilas Paswan, local MP and dissident BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha, veteran lawyer Ram Jethmalani, former Union Ministers Prafull Patel and Tariq Anwar, yoga guru Baba Ramdev.
The list doesn't stop with Nitish Kumar. While addressing the press, Nitish had said he was not able to work under the grand alliance due to the ideological rift. "We don't know the exact number but by seeing the crowd we can say that a large number of supporters also attended the wedding ceremony".
The hosts have invited 50,000 guests to the wedding ceremony at the sprawling veterinary college ground in Patna. The bride and groom exchanged garlands amid thundering applauses by those present there.

Baba Ramdev blesses Aishwarya Rai at 5 Circular Road in Patna on Friday. The bungalows of both the RJD leaders have been decorated with imported flowers while green chillies and lemons were tied at several points to ward off the evil eye. More than 150 cooks from Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and different districts in Bihar prepared 80-odd exquisite dishes for the guests.
He has been convicted in four fodder scam cases since 2013 - the latest being the Dumka treasury case in which a special Central Bureau of Investigation court sentenced him to 14-year jail term. "The marriage was finalized in March", said a member of RJD's women cell, adding Rabri personally selected Aishwarya to be her daughter-in-law. Yadav has been restrained by parole conditions from engaging in political activities during his stay in Patna.
The wedding is to take place in Patna on May 12.
