What he said:
“In India, when marriages take place, till last moment one keeps arranging for flower, vermillion till the last moment. Here we are welcoming not one, but 24 bridegrooms.”
Jaypee Sports CEO and MD, Samir Gaur, brushed aside questions from the press as to whether work on the Buddh circuit was still underway less than a fortnight before the much awaited Indian Grand Prix on October 30.
India’s first ever Formula One Grand Prix is the epee of Indian sport this year.
Narain Karthikeyan, praising the track, said:
“I have raced on all the major F1 tracks across the globe and I rate this track as one of the best in the world.”
What he really meant:
“The bride (Buddh) is being prepared for the Swayamvar. Surely, you’d expect nerves and last-minute palpitations?”
What he definitely didn’t:
“There’s enough wedding cake for all to go around.”
