Finally, the big fat Indian wedding of the year took place with much gusto. The Nawab of Pataudi and actor par excellence Saif Ali Khan married his sweetheart of 5 years, Kareena Kapoor, granddaughter of Raj Kapoor on 16th October 2012.
While the wedding festivities began on 14th October as a private terrace party involving only family and very close friends of the couple, the entire nation had its eyes glued for the proceedings to follow. It was followed by a yet another close gathering for the mehendi function the day after. The nawab and his begum went for a registry marriage, with the bride’s parents Babita and Randhir Kapoor, elder sister Karisma Kapoor and groom’s mother Sharmila Tagore as the witnesses. The couple chose simple elegant attires (grey kurta for the groom and green salwar with red dupatta for the bride) for the ceremony.
The evening festivities took place at The Taj Palace in Mumbai which saw big names from the industry (Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Preity Zinta, Karan Johar and the likes) making a beeline to wish the couple. The wedding festivities did not end here as more celebrations followed in Delhi with politicos and Bollywood making a heavy presence. Some of the guests included Sheila Dixit, Shahnaz Husain, Gursharan Kaur, Amjad Ali Khan, Dilip Cherian, Kapil Dev, Anjali Ela Menon, Ajay Jadeja, Madhur Bhandarkar, Prasoon Joshi, Nandita Das and the likes.
