This puts self-written wedding vows to shame! A video of a groom serenading his wife with a Bollywood song is going viral, thanks to his heartfelt performance and the bride's emotional reaction.
Frank Gregoire and Simran Malhotra got married in a multicultural wedding on June 27 in Baltimore, Maryland, where 130 guests celebrated Gregoire's Christian roots and Malhotra's Sikh culture. During the reception, Gregoire, a "closet singer/piano player," sat at the piano and started playing a song that made his new wife's heart nearly burst.
"Tum Hi Ho," his song of choice, is from the popular Bollywood 2013 movie Aashiqui 2. The title translates to "only you are there," while the lyrics describe appreciating your one true love and not wanting to face life without them. Unsurprisingly, a shocked Malhotra cries within the first few bars as the crowd whoops it up around her.
"My heart sank when I first heard him sing in Hindi. It was a feeling I had never felt before," Malhotra told The Huffington Post Canada. "The only thing I was thinking was, 'How did he manage to do this?' I was the only one at the reception who knows how hard he truly works."
Gregoire reportedly planned to write or read a poem for his bride, but instead opted for something much more emotional. The Canadian couple met at work in 2012 in Baltimore, where they now live.
"All our family and friends are on cloud nine still. That moment is one I will never forget for the rest of my life," Malhotra said. We can only imagine!
