The celebrity wedding of this year started with the pre-wedding celebrations on Sunday. The first and the foremost celebration was the Sangeet ceremony held on October 14, Sunday at Kareena Kapoor’s Bandra residence in Mumbai. Mehendi ceremony and a grand dinner took place at the Taj Mahal hotel last night.

These two wedding celebrations will be followed by a reception in New Delhi on October 18. There will also be another wedding ceremony at the Pataudi Palace in Haryana.
Actor Khan, 42 and actress Kapoor, 32 come from well-known families with established links to the film industry. Kareena Kapoor, who has done hits like “Jab We Met” (When We Met, 2007) and “3 Idiots” (2009), hails from Bollywood’s leading acting dynasty, started by the actress’s great-grandfather Prithviraj.
Marriage with Kareena Kapoor is Saif Ali Khan’s second marriage. He got married to actress Amrita Singh in 1991, but the couple parted ways in 2004. They have two kids, Ibrahim and Sara.
Saif Ali Khan became the new Nawab also called as the Muslim prince of the former princely state of Pataudi last year after the death of his famous cricketing father Mansur Ali Khan, famously known as “Tiger Pataudi.”
