so my best friend’s wedding is over. this was my speech on her shaadi.
Hi! My name is Komal and I’ve been hired by Saima to make a speech at her wedding. So everyone better laugh at the appropriate times, for me to get paid!
For as long as I’ve known her, Saima’s been sort of a Bollywood queen…you could say she’s Bollywood Royalty. So I’ve tried to make incorporate a little bit of that in my speech. Warning: Due to severe cheesiness in Bollywood, there may be severely cheesy parts of my speech!
I’ve known Saima for about a decade now so basically….we are family! I’ve been looking forward to her wedding like I would to my own sister’s! Everyone I know within Ontario, outside Ontario, internationally, and overseas knows that mere yaar ki shaadi hai! But it wasn’t always that way. I didn’t always look forward to the day I would find out that my very best friend was getting married. I thought the day that happened would be the day that our friendship would have ek villain wedged in between it!
But when Saima met Nadeem and she described him to me….well I could never feel so badly about someone if my best friend was so happy with them! I understood at that moment from Saima that when you meet the right person for you, waqai kuch kuch hota hai! And although I am ELATED for her, my happiness is almost split into 2 states. There’s a part of me that also feels sad! Chalo, as Karan Johar says, in life kabhi khushi kabhi gham to hota hi hai. Now that Saima’s getting married, I feel like I’ll be losing a little bit of my friend forever. Dil chahta hai ke somehow, I could go back and relive all the times we had together so that I can solidify them in my memory.
But that’s not possible. Instead I’m going to soak in every last minute tonight and on Sunday as these dilwale dulhania lay jayenge. So at your wedding today, I just want to take this opportunity to say congratulations! And I want to wish you both a happily married life. May this new chapter in your life take you to all the places you want to go and may it give me and your family and everyone else an abundance of little nieces and nephews. And….I guess that’s all I have to say! Congratulations guys!
