On Sunday, October 14, the much awaited Bollywood wedding of the year was kick-started.
Lovebirds of more than 5 years now, ‘Heroine’ Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan threw a pre-wedding ‘Sangeet’ ceremony at Kareena’s terraced house.
The to-be Begum of Pataudi looked resplendent wearing an orange Manish Malhotra lehenga choli, her hair adorned with traditional flower garlands.
She also added a heavy polki set comprising of a choker, chandelier earrings and a maang tikka.
We hear that Kareena underwent a strict high protein – low carb diet and practiced Ashtanga Yoga to look glorious for the wedding week. Saif kept it clean and simple in a pure white ‘jodhpuri’.
The couple kept the event an exclusively private affair with a handful of select guests.
Kareena’s close friend Manish Malhotra who has designed the rest of her wedding outfits too commented, “Its just a fun party.”
Interestingly, with this wedding the three decade long feud between Rishi Kapoor’s wife Neetu Kapoor and Kareena’s mother has fizzled out, with Babita Kapoor extending the olive branch by sending out invites. (SEE PHOTOS)
