Following an intimate mehendi ceremony at their Juhu home on Sunday, it was time for a grand celebration — bride Sonam Kapoor threw open the doors of Sunteck Hall in Signature Island Apartments in Bandra Kurla Complex for an elaborate mehendi session yesterday.

Sticking to the dress code laid down on the invite — "Indian festive shades of white" — Bollywood's glitterati came together for the pre-wedding function, ahead of the actor's wedding with Anand Ahuja today.

Sonam looked radiant in a white chikankari Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla couture lehenga while the groom complemented her in a white bandhgala.

Namrata Soni, who Sonam has trusted with her bridal makeup, said, "We kept the makeup traditional — a bronze winged eye with pink lips, and fishtail braid with mogras." Veena Nagra did the mehendi for all the ladies present.

Karan Johar

Guests started trickling in by 5 pm, with Karan Johar, Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Swara Bhasker being the early birds. Even a fractured leg couldn't dissuade Farah Khan from attending the function.

Jacqueline Fernandez

Though initially reluctant to have hennaed hands, Jacqueline Fernandez finally got a miniature design on her left hand at Sonam's behest.

Johar was the first on the dance floor as he grooved to Sukhbir who belted out his hits. Anil Kapoor dragged Shilpa to the dance floor as the trio jived together. Sonam shook a leg with Fernandez on Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan, before grooving to Tareefan.
