One of the most awaited weddings of the year finally happened with a complete bang! Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor finally tied the knot on Tuesday and now are the royal Saifeena couple legally. They exchanged their wedding vows in a private affair at their suburban Bandra residence.
The registration of the marriage was done in the presence of three witnesses-Kareena’s parents Babita and Randhir Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore, Saif’s mother. Saif entered his original name in the registration as Sajid Ali Khan and Bebo’s age was given as 31 years old as the registration was filed before her 32nd birthday. Kareena wore a green shalwar kurta with minimal jewellery and make up and looked dashing while Saif donned a grey kurta and white pyjama. It was a cosy affair with just the immediate family, that night a gorgeous recpetion was held and then the nikaah followed by reception will be held in Pataudi later this week.
Even though the wedding was private and done in a very sober way, the pre-wedding functions grabbed the paparazzi’s eye and were glamorous and full of colour. The sangeet ceremony that was held in Bebo’s apartment in Bandra witnessed some of Bollywood’s favourite people there celebrating Bebo and Saif’s relation with them including Neetu Singh, Babita, Sanjay Kapoor, Manish Malhotra, Soha Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Malaika Arora Khan, Amrita Arora Ladak, Karan Johar and many more. Saif’s children Ibrahim and Sara were also present. Kareena looked gorgeous in an orange and gold lehenga by Manish Malhotra and Saif looked nawaabi in a white Nehru jacket over a kurta. Their friends and loved ones danced to songs from their films and they had a fun filled sangeet ceremony.
Twitter was full of Saifeena tweets yesterday, out of which one special person tweeting every 30 minutes was designer Manish Malhotra who is Bebo’s friend and has designed her trousseau. He kept tweeting pictures and about the happenings such as “So me and my team is here to dress Kareena as a bride”, “First we try and fit the vintage traditional outifit on Kareena” and a lot more. He also cleared the air about Kareena’s outfits made by him and no one else. As for Saif, Raghavendra Rathore has created a Benarasi brocade achkan with reference to his father’s wardrobe.
It has also been reported that Kareena will be wearing an INR 4 million necklace by traditional jewellery makers Kruti Jewellers from Rajkot. The designer has stated that such sets are made only for royal weddings.
There has been a lot of debate about Kareena’s name change after marriage, but she will be called Kareena Kapoor Khan. Also, Saif is not forcing her about changing her religion either and says he doesn’t want her to change anything about herself.
People from all across the globe are congratulating the couple. While megastar Shah Rukh Khan tweeted for them, Hollywood actor Brad Pitt expressed his delight and said he is very happy for them and wishes them a great life ahead. Kareena’s ex-boyfriend Shahid Kapoor also congratulated the couple and said he hopes Bebo continues to work after marriage. There was a special gift that the duo received from PETA, which is a flock of 5 vegan chickens made of chocolate without using chickens for eggs and cows for dairy milk. This was a gift that stood out and was made keeping in mind that Kareena is vegetarian.
We wish Saifeena an amazing married life ahead with joy and love in abundance!
