#Sonamkishaadi was indeed a carnival not only for the Bollywood industry, but even for her fans as well. She married her long time beau Anand Ahuja in a Sikh wedding ceremony on 8th May. And, the wedding was attended by many of her close friends from the industry. All her fans were excited to know which designer will she wear at her wedding? How will she look at the d-day? But, as the day came closer Sonam’s bridal pictures and her wedding album went viral. And, now that the wedding ceremony is over, it’s time we talk about the star-studded reception.
Sonam Kapoor’s reception was hosted at The Leela in Mumbai on 8th May post the wedding ceremony. The wedding ceremony observed very few celebrities, but her reception was certainly a star-studded affair.
Before we talk about who all attended the reception, let’s welcome the couple of the night:
Mr & Mrs Ahuja
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja opted for Anamika Khanna. Whereas, the groom decided to wear bandhgala from Raghavendra Rathore’s collection. What we liked about her ensemble was, she ditched the blingy outfits and went for something elegant. The offbeat thing about Anand’s ensemble was his pair of Nike sneakers.
The Celebrity Guests
Bollywood’s King Khan came along with his wife Gauri Khan at the reception. Gauri Khan wore Tarun Tahiliani’s collection, an ombre jacket which had a jewelled neckline. The couple was complimenting each other perfectly.
And, you must see how Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan rocked the reception night. Both were seen dancing on a song from Karan Arjun with Sonam’s mother Sangeet Kapoor.
Also, watch SRK dancing with Anil Kapoor:
Kareena Kapoor Khan attended the reception with husband Saif Ali Khan and unfortunately we couldn’t find the cute Khan baby (Taimur) with them. But, we must say mommy Kareena Kapoor Khan was slaying in her golden saree from Manish Malhotra collection.
And, see how bebo showing us her dance moves at the reception.
Not to forget about her obsession of pout.
The Caste of Veere Di Wedding
Sonam’s close friend Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania decided to wear Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla collection at their veere’s reception. Swara’s black and golden ensemble with umbrella sleeved blouse was a perfect pick for the reception. And, Shikha’s lemon dress with mirror work was another stunning dress last night.
