At Shahid, Mira’s Blockbuster Reception: Amitabh Bachchan, Kangana and A-List Guests
Shahid Kapoor’s big, fat sangeet, wedding and after-party was followed by a bigger, fatter reception gala in Mumbai which the actor and his bride hosted for his friends and colleagues from Bollywood on the night of July 12.
The reception was a star-studded affair. The guest list was staggering with A-listers including Amitabh Bachchan, Kangana Ranaut, Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Genelia Deshmukh and Dia Mirza in attendance.
The newly-weds, who walked in hand-in
-hand, looked the picture of happiness. Shahid looked handsome in a three-piece suit by close friend Kunal Rawal. Mira looked lovely in blue and white Manish Malhotra.
Big B, who was among the first to arrive, was dapper in a black bandhgala and chatted amicably with the newly weds and Shahid’s father, actor Pankaj Kapur.
Sonam, who arrived with her father Anil Kapoor, looked stunning in a peacock blue and green anarkali. Kangana Ranaut was fabulous in pink. Alia Bhatt, who is working with Shahid in Udta Punjab and Shaandaar, looked fetching in a white and lilac Manish Malhotra lehenga.
Actresses Genelia Deshmukh and Shraddha Kapoor looked exquisite in delicately embroidered anarkalis. Dia Mirza managed to out-bling everyone else in a heavily embellished gold anarkali.
It had all the elements of a typical Bollywood film – soft lights, flowers, a dreamy setting by way of the five-star Palladium Hotel.
Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor were among the late arrivals.
Shahid Kapoor’s mother Neelima Azim and her son Ishaan Khattar were the first to arrive.
