JODHPUR - This time, no less than Hollywood’s power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are set to tie the knot amid the chanting of mantras in India and an ashram in Rajasthan could be the venue for their Hindu wedding ceremony, sources say!

“Jolie, 35, and Pitt, 46, will marry in the new year and Siddha Guru Ram Lalji Siyag of Bikaner will conduct the ceremony,” a source close to the guru told IANS.

He said though the date has so far not been finalised, chances are the wedding will take place in the ashram known as Adhyatma Vigyan Satsang Kendra of Guru Siyag, 83. It is situated in Chopsani area of Jodhpur.

“Guruji was asked to perform the rituals in a five star hotel situated in the city, but he refused to hold the ceremony there and suggested it could take place in his ashram,” he said the guests of the celebrities can stay in a resort near the ashram.

“We are waiting for a reply from the couple on this,” he added.

According to the source, Guru Siyag has been helping the couple find inner peace and harmony and strengthening their nearly five-year relationship by making them practice Siddha yoga together.

In October 2006, Angelina and Brad had visited Jodhpur and stayed at Umaid Bhawan Palace. During their two-day trip, they went for jewellery shopping and purchased traditional Rajasthani accessories.

The two have three adopted children - Maddox, Pax and Zahara - as well as three biological children - Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne.

Siddha Guru Siyag founded the spiritual organisation Adhyatma Vigyan Satsang Kendra about 20 years ago in Jodhpur. Siddha Yoga corrects disharmony of the body and mind. “Guru Siyag’s Siddha Yoga For Spiritual Evolution & Holistic Healing” is the tagline of the organisation.

India is fast becoming a favourite wedding destination for Hollywood celebrities. British comedian Russell Brand and singer Katy Perry had tied the knot as per Hindu rites in Rajasthan in November. Before that, Arun Nayar and Liz Hurley had also married in the state, but the couple have recently split.
