The first of Kareena Kapoor’s two wedding ceremonies today is complete and she and Saif Ali Khan are officially married.
The registered wedding took place at Saif’s apartment in Bandra this afternoon. Marriage registrar Surekha Ramesh told PTI, “It was a registered marriage with three witnesses – Kareena’s father Randhir Kapoor, her mother Babita and Saif’s mother Sharmila.”
Kareena, 32, wore a green and red salwar-kameez, while 42-year-old Saif was in a grey kurta-pyjama. Also present at the wedding were Kareena’s sister Karisma, who was dressed in white.
Kareena and Saif will have a nikaah ceremony at the Taj Mahal Palace hotel this evening. Kareena will wear a traditional gharara that her mother-in-law Sharmila Tagore wore at her own wedding. The outfit has been refurbished and brought up-to-date.
In addition to the reception in Delhi on October 18, there will be another ceremony at Pataudi Palace.
A sit down dinner and mehendi ceremony took place at the Taj Mahal hotel last night.
On Sunday, a private sangeet was held at Kareena’s Bandra home. Family and close friends, including Malaika Arora Khan, Amrita Arora, Karan Johar and Manish Malhotra, were invited. Today’s ceremonies are expected to be equally select. (With agency inputs)
