The hoopla over the Saifeena wedding, scheduled for October 16, kicked off on Sunday evening when the Bollywood power couple threw a 'fun party' for close friends and family on Sunday evening.
The venue was the terrace of Kareena Kapoor's Bandra apartment building. Dressed every inch like a bride-to-be, Kareena dazzled in an orange-yellow lehenga and a shimmering golden choli, teamed with green bangles and a low hair-bun decorated with gajras.
Beau Saif Ali Khan turned out more on the simpler side. He looked dapper in a white outfit.While a section of the press reported that the event was Saifeena's sangeet ceremony, it turned out to be otherwise.
'It was just an Indian-themed party with a desi feel and desi music. It was a fun party and everyone was there to enjoy,' Kareena's close friend, designer Manish Malhotra, who had designed the actress's outfit and was a guest at the do, told us.
Sara Ali Khan, Saif's daughter from his first marriage to Amrita Singh, arrived at the wedding looking dainty in a traditional outfit.
Incidentally, she was spotted showing the invitation card at the entry gate. The buzz is that Saif 's children will also be present at the wedding, which takes place today.
