Ash and Abhishek's shaadi ka laddoo

Officially only 350 invitation cards are being sent out for the much talked about Ash-Abhi wedding. But there are some who are going to arrive at the Bachchan residence for the big day, without an invitation.

One of them is going to be sweet shop owner Prakash Pandey from Kanpur. Thaggu Ke Ladoo is the sweet shop in Kanpur that owes its claim to fame to Abhishek Bachchan's movie Bunty Aur Babli.

Some scenes of the movie were shot in this shop and now with the Ash-Abhi wedding just around the corner, Pandey is busy making plans to deliver ladoos for the wedding.

Abhishek had shot here. He had called me mama (uncle) so, I’ll take ladoos in another four-five days,” Pandey says.

But without an official invitation and news of tight security at the Bachchan residence, what are the chances that he'll actually be able to gift the ladoos?

“If they let me in then I'll give the ladoos or else will sit outside and send it thorough somebody else,” Pandey says matter of factly.

A Big B loyalist, Pandey claims to know Amitabh Bachchan since the day the star tried his hand at politics in Uttar Pradesh. So, now with the impending wedding, the sweet shop owner thinks it’s finally time to pay the Bachchans a visit.

“I have no invitation but I’ll surely go,” Pandey says confidently.
