Wishes pour in for newly wed Saifeena

After a registered marriage, newly-weds Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor went in for an exchange of vows before hosting a grand reception that went on till the wee hours today.

While there were rumours that a nikaah was held, Kareena’s close friend and fashion designer Manish Malhotra said that there was a simple exchange of vows between the two actors, who have been dating for five years.

‘They just exchanged vows at the Taj Mahal hotel in Colaba. There were no saath pheras,’ said Malhotra.

The marriage at Saif’s residence was a simple affair, but the post-wedding functions saw a host of B-town celebs like Shah Rukh Khan with wife Gauri, Priety Zinta, Karan Johar, Tusshar Kapoor, Salman Khan’s sister Alvira, Anil Kapoor with daughter Sonam drop in.

Malhotra said that the 32-year-old actress wore Saif’s grandmother’s traditional gharara for the ceremony last night.

The actor’s mother Sharmila Tagore had worn the same gharara which was given to Bebo at her own nikaah.

‘I worked on the antique Pataudi gharara that was restored by Ritu Kumar for Kareena’s wedding... we did the final fittings and added a bit of touch of embroidery here and there,’ said Malhotra.

Later, Kareena changed into a Malhotra creation and Saif donned a Banarasi brocade achkan by designer Raghavendra Rathore. ‘Kareena wore a burgundy coloured embellished gharara with maroon dupatta. The party had 80-100 people and went on till 3 am,’ said Malhotra.

The post-wedding celebrations have reportedly not ended. There is a party in the Capital as well as one in Saif’s ancestral home Pataudi.
