‘My Niece’s Big Fat Delhi Wedding’ (2021) was inspired by the hit film ‘Monsoon Wedding’. The film showcases the Delhi high life of the Kohli family who live in its suburb called Gurugram. Filmed over a 10-day period, the documentary demonstrates all the ‘C’ words of an Indian wedding – the ‘charisma’, the ‘chaos’, the ‘crying’, the ‘colour’, and its ceremonies such as ‘choora’ and ‘caleeray’, and above all the comedy!
