"Jodhabai doli mein baith chuki hai"

I went for a second watch of 'Jodhaa Akbar' and came across something very peculiar that has relevance in 2008 as well.

Whenever these members of the royal family, Akbar (a king who makes sure that he looks erotic - even when he's exercising..), Jodha or the rest of the family do something - even if it is really really trivial, a 'sevak' shouts it out by saying, "Jodhabai doli mein baith chuki hai", "Jodhabai prasthaan kar chuki hai.."

And why do we blame news channels of today for broadcasting news like "Aishwarya wears pink for her wedding", "Aishwarya smiles at Jaya Bachhan during the wedding", "Abhishek Bachhan says hello to Rekha.."?

It is very much a part of the 'Indian culture and history', isn't it?!
