Newly-weds Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput were the cynosure of all eyes at the Palladium Hotel in Lower Parel, Mumbai where a flurry of stars from Amitabh Bachchan, Anurag Kashyap and Anil Kapoor to Kangana Ranaut, Sonam Kapoor and Preity Zinta attended the couple's wedding reception on Sunday night.

A live band welcomed all the guests with some groovy music at the entrance of the hotel.
Among the first guests to arrive were Shahid's mother Neelima Azeem, aunt Ratna Pathak Shah with her sons Vivaan and Imaad, Tusshar Kapoor and designer Masaba Gupta.

Others like Arjun Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Genelia Deshmukh, Sajid Nadiadwala, Shraddha Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, Alia Bhatt, Sonu Sood, Abbas-Mastan, Vishal Bhardwaj, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Vikas Bahl and more arrived at the venue just before the couple made an entry.

Mira looked elegant in Manish Malhotra creation, and teamed it with jewels from Nirav Modi's Luminance Collection, wearing a bracelet, cascading earrings and ring. Shahid matched up with her style in a suave tuxedo with a bow.
Actresses, who Shahid dated in the past and was linked with, including Kareena Kapoor Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, were rumoured to have been invited at the reception but none of them were spotted at the function.
The duo married in Delhi on July 7 in a closely guarded affair. A day before that, they danced away during a sangeet ceremony, where Shahid even went down on one knee to match steps with 21-year-old Mira.
Following their wedding, a post-nuptial celebration was held in Gurgaon, but Bollywood's glitterati was mostly missing throughout. Nevertheless, the party on Sunday seems to have made up for the lack of glitz and glamour.
On the work front, Shahid is busy with celebrity dance show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded". The actor will next be seen in "Udta Punjab" alongside Kareena and Alia, with whom he has also worked in the upcoming Vikas Bahl's film "Shaandaar". He will be sharing screen space with Kangana and Saif Ali Khan in Vishal Bhardwaj's next "Rangoon".
