As the newlyweds arrived sharp at 7.30 pm, the guests were greeted at the entrance with “farshi adaab” (welcome) by Saif’s cousins. As a live band performed along with a singing opera, family and friends poured in and the mood was one of high exaltation.

Minus the Kapoors
A close friend of the Pataudi family also points out how the presence of Bollywood fraternity at the party was very limited. The source adds, “Rishi, Neetu and Bebo’s cousin Ranbir Kapoor skipped the event. The party however saw a lot of politicians rubbing shoulders with each other.
