Kajal Fabiani and Gaurav Assomull were the most searched key words on WeddingSutra in March 2011. Everyone wanted to know more about the two rich kids whose wedding in Monte Carlo made such big news. While the Sindhi community around the world exchanged notes on the dream wedding which Kamal Fabiani and Madan Assomull organised for their children, the wedding managers Monte Carlo Weddings and Percept were besieged with requests from the media for pictures and more information on this high profile destination wedding, the highlight of which was a performance by Akon.

As soon as the society darlings got engaged, they evaluated several options for a destination wedding outside India, finally they zeroed in on Monte Carlo as it was Kajal’s dream wedding venue since long. Monte Carlo Weddings partnered with Percept DMark (who took care of hospitality during the four days of festivities) to execute this dream wedding. There was of course a lot of logistics support from the Tourism of Monaco, who were thrilled to host the Big, Fat Sindhi Wedding.
