The Pataudis were dressed in their finest for the reception
The Pataudi family, stars of high society, hosted a nawabi-style gathering for their newly married beti Soha Ali Khan and her husband Kunal Khemu in Mumbai yesterday. While the marriage ceremony was an in-house affair, a host of celebrities attended the reception held thereafter.
Soha’s mother Sharmila Tagore, brother Saif Ali Khan and sister-in-law Kareena Kapoor welcomed the guests.
Kareena who had looked ravishing at the wedding, notched up another fashion high in glittering white and pink Manish Malhotra while Saif topped off the aristocratic look with a blue bandhgala.
Also present were Kareena’s sister, actress Karisma Kapoor, who looked equally pretty in an ornate Manish Malhotra creation, and her mother Babita. Kareena’s good friends Amrita Arora, Malaika Arora Khan and Arpita Sharma were also present. While Amrita looked lovely in a Shantanu and Nikhil creation; Malaika raised the glam quotient in a cream and gold Preeti S Kapoor floor-length anarkali.
Soha’s close friends Neha Dhupia and Konkana Sen Sharma, who had thrown a bachelorette party for her a few days prior to the wedding, were also in attendance. Neha looked ravishing in a black Payal Singhal creation and Konkana was a vision in a white and pink Raw Mango sari.
The new bride’s sister, jewellery designer Saba Ali Khan added a dash of colour to the festivities in a yellow lehenga-choli.
Saif’s ex-wife Amrita Singh and their daughter Sara, who were absent at the wedding, weren’t a part of the reception either. His son Ibrahim, who had put in an appearance at the wedding, was later sighted at the after-party.
Cricketer Yuvraj Singh, actors Sophie Choudry, Sandhya Mridul, Arshad Warsi and Gaurav Kapoor, filmmaker Karan Johar and Dia Mirza’s husband Sahil Sangha also formed a part of the celebrity guest list. Sophie donned an embellished cream and pink Anushka Khanna outfit and Sandhya Mridul wore a Nikasha sari and gold jhumkis.
