Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Dawaat-E-Walima in Delhi was attended by political and Bollywood bigwigs. The reception began around 8 pm at a spacious government bungalow at Aurangzeb Road.
Cricketer Kapil Dev, Congress leader Digvijay Singh, former SP MP Amar Singh, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and designer Ritu Kumar, Prime Minister's wife Gursharan Kaur, Union ministers Farooq Abdullah, Rajiv Shukla and Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sitaram Yechury of CPI-M, BJP leader Arun Jaitley, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia, lyricist Prasoon Joshi and actress Nandita Das came to attend the party.
UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi was also among the invitees for the Dawat-E-Walima, organised by Saif's mother Sharmila Tagore.
Due to a lot of VVIP movement security around the venue has been tightened and only people on the guest list were allowed inside. The celebrations for the year's most-anticipated marriage began way in advance with a pre-wedding bash at Kareena's Mumbai residence on Sunday.
The wedding took place at Saif's Bandra residence in the form of a registered marriage yesterday afternoon, after which the couple exchanged vows at a Mumbai hotel in the evening and hosted a post-wedding party attended by family, friends and who's who from Bollywood. Shahrukh Khan with wife Gauri, Priety Zinta, Karan Johar, Tusshar Kapoor, Anil Kapoor with daughter Sonam were among the attendees at last night's bash.
