ToI reports:

We hear Zaheer is planning to walk the aisle with his long time girlfriend and Bollywood actress Isha Sharvani very soon.

If you have seen Isha Sharvani dance, then let’s set the jealousy aside for a moment. What I find curious is the use of walk the aisle and how strange its usage is in an Indian context. We don’t walk down the aisle in a wedding ceremony; we sit like lazy bums for half a day* and please the gods.

Tying the knot is more apt in an Indian context. The phrase originated from Hindu ceremonies of North India where garments of the bride and groom are tied before they go around the holy fire.

Not really, but that was believable no?
