Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal: The couple pictured at Mumbai airport

Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's wedding festivities have begun at Six Senses Resort, Fort Barwara in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan. Visuals of the fort lit up at night have gone viral. The mehendi and sangeet will be followed by a haldi ceremony and a sehrabandi before the pheras. The mehendi took place yesterday and the sangeet will be held tonight. Veena Nagda, mehendi artist to the stars, is trending after sharing an Instagram Story that the Internet has been quick to draw conclusions from. Katrina and Vicky's wedding guests flew into Jaipur yesterday - they include Kabir Khan and Mini Mathur, Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi, Sharvari Wagh, Radhika Madan, and director Vijay Krishna Acharya with his wife. Guests are banned from taking their mobile phones to the wedding venue and there is also a no-photo sharing policy in place. Performers at the sangeet include Punjabi singer Gurdas Maan and Shankar-Ehsan-Loy. The henna for the mehendi has been sourced from Sojat in Rajasthan and costs between Rs 50,000 and Rs 1 lakh. Katrina Kaif's wedding looks are being styled by Anaita Shroff Adajania, who flew into Jaipur on Monday - Katrina wore a yellow Anamika Khanna sharara set as her travel outfit. She was accompanied on the flight by mother Suzanne Turquotte; her sisters, including Isabelle and Natasha, flew separately.

Throwback to this viral Katrina-Vicky moment

Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal have been the most private of couples, managing to keep their dating life a secret until the Internet spotted the mustard T-shirt encasing the shoulder Katrina was leaning on in an Instagram Story on a certain somebody else. The couple reportedly began dating in 2019 and were outed by actor Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor earlier this year. In between, it had been rumours only... and this viral moment:

Vicky Kaushal, national crush

Safe to say that Vicky Kaushal, 33, has been adorable since birth - proof below. Vicky, who won a National Award for Uri: The Surgical Strike and was last seen in the well-received Sardar Udham, is one of Bollywood's leading talents. He's also hilarious - Vicky captioned this photo of him skipping out the way of mother Veena's raised hand, "Dodging them till date. Keep them coming Maa"

Performers at Katrina and Vicky's sangeet

Tonight's sangeet will likely have a distinctly Punjabi flavour - several musical stars stars have been spotted at Jaipur airport, among them Harrdy Sandhu, Toshi Sabri, Aastha Gill, DJ Chetas, and Manj Musik of RDB with his wife Nindy Kaur. Gurdas Maan arrived yesterday and Shankar-Ehsan-Loy are also expected to sing

Meantime, the Internet is very excited about this

Farah Khan and Karan Johar shared this hilarious clip of themselves dancing to Bole Chudiyan from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham - which is in its 20th year - and the Internet is losing it. Not because KJo looks so very KJo-like in an OTT jacket and massive sunglasses. Not because Farah Khan is killing us with her rose petals and hippy hippy shake - but because the action takes place in a hotel room and the Internet thinks it could well be a hotel room in Six Senses Resort, Fort Barwara.

Unlikely, we imagine, given that neither Karan Johar nor Farah Khan have been spotted anywhere near Jaipur and it's entirely possible, indeed probable, they are in a hotel or a set for new film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. But who are we to rain on the Internet's parade?

Watch Farah and KJo being epic here

Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's guest list - MIA

At least two filmmakers who have worked with Katrina are at the wedding - Kabir Khan directed her in films like New York and Ek Tha Tiger, and Vijay Krishna Acharya in Dhoom 3 and Thugs Of Hindostan. Not at the wedding is Katrina's Sooryavanshi director Rohit Shetty who is believed to be in Ooty prepping to film Cirkus with Ranveer Singh

Also not at the wedding is Salman Khan, Katrina's co-star in several films, most recently Bharat - his absence is glaring because Katrina Kaif is supposedly very close to his family. None of the Khan-daan have been invited, Salman's sister Arpita said recently and, indeed, none have been spotted at Jaipur airport.

Salman will be in Saudi Arabia with his Da-Bangg The Tour Reloaded this week - it is scheduled for December 10 in Riyadh

We cannot verify that this really is the actual wedding invite

Katrina Kaif, Vicky Kaushal and the Wikipedia mystery

Earlier today, the Internet spotted a change in the Wikipedia pages for Katrina and Vicky. The 'spouse' information for both had been updated to reflect each other's names. Prematurely, it appears because the changes were reversed soon after - but not in time to prevent a trending topic on social media

Meantime, another celebration

Maria Goretti is celebrating her birthday with a bunch of her girlfriends, minus a few, in Pench, Madhya Pradesh. Among them is her bestie Mini Mathur who is in Rajasthan attending Katrina and Vicky's wedding instead. Tough choices to make, Mini? Mini's husband Kabir Khan directed Katrina in films like New York and Ek Tha Tiger and, according to reports, Katrina and Vicky got engaged at Kabir and Mini's home over Diwali.

"I miss miss miss you," Maria wrote in her birthday post:

A celeb addition to Vicky Kaushal's baraat

Malavika shared this on her Insta Stories en-route to the wedding

Musical stars fly into Jaipur

Also spotted at Jaipur airport today - Manj Musik, formerly of the bhangra band RDB, and his Nindy Kaur. No confirmation if they are there for Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's sangeet but Vicky's love for Punjabi music is well-known. Plus, his big fat Punjabi family are meant to be rocking the wedding festivities by all accounts

See a picture of Manj Musik and Nindy Kaur at Jaipur airport here:

More arrivals at Jaipur airport - but are they for Katrina and Vicky?

Aastha Gill, who sang Abhi To Party Shuru Hui Hai in the film Khoobsoorat, and DJ Chetas landed in Jaipur today. Aastha is reportedly not there for Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's wedding, DJ Chetas might be - nether was telling. It's unclear if the sangeet took place last night or will tonight

Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's Wikipedia pages have been updated, FYI

The Internet noticed today that the spouse information on the Wikipedia pages for both Katrina and Vicky have been changed to reflect each other's names. The couple were reportedly meant to have a court marriage in Mumbai last week but if they did, they kept it as hush-hush as everything else about their wedding. No official announcement has been made unless this Wiki change is their subtle way to letting us know.

The Wikipedia pages have only partly been updated - the Personal Life sections say 'Katrina is to marry Vicky' and vice versa

Why the Internet thinks it has found Katrina Kaif's mehendi artist

Apart from having worked with Katrina and other actresses (like Alia Bhatt in Raazi) in several films, Veena Nagda has also been the mehendi artist for many celebrity brides.

Ms Nagda applied Deepika Padukone's mehendi when the actress married Ranveer Singh in 2018

See Veena Nagda's post with Deepika here:

Veena Nagda also applied Natasha Dalal's mehendi at the designer's wedding to actor Varun Dhawan in January this year. See her picture with Natasha here:

Katrina and Vicky's mehendi - That a helluva lot of henna

There are 120 guests at Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's wedding and both ladkiwale and baraatis will be involved in the mehendi ceremony (which may or may not have already taken place)

The henna is chemical-free and specially sourced from Sojat in Rajasthan. 20 kilos of henna powder and 400 cones are being used for the ceremony, reports news agency PTI

That's a lot of mehendi. Also, it costs between Rs 50,000 and Rs 1 lakh but the business supplying the henna will reportedly not charge Katrina and Vicky

Dec 08, 2021 13:15 (IST)
Katrina Kaif's mehendi artist - found?

Guess who else Veena Nagda has a photo with? Groom-to-be Vicky Kaushal whose film Raazi, co-starring Alia Bhatt, she worked on

Is this Katrina Kaif's Mehendiwali?

So, who is Veena Nagda? Ms Nagda is mehendi artist to the stars and she's worked with Katrina Kaif on movies like 2006's Humko Deewana Kare Gaye co-starring Akshay Kumar.

Here's a photo Veena Nagda shared of herself applying mehendi to Katrina on the set of the film

Veena Nagda also shared a second Instagram Story which is a clip of a drive through terrain that looks like it could be Rajasthan

Naturally, the Internet has jumped to conclusions

The only Instagram post Vicky Kaushal has ever shared for Katrina Kaif

The super-secret couple have never made it Instagram official (they went straight to wedding official). Way back in October 2019, Vicky posted this message congratulating Katrina on the launch of her beauty line Kay By Katrina. That is pretty much the only mention of Katrina on Vicky's Insta.

More on Katrina Kaif's 'ladies sangeet'

The only-women function was from Vicky Kaushal's mother Veena to Katrina. "Veena ji is very fond of Katrina. And while there will be the big Sangeet night later today, she wanted to do something more intimate and special and so she organized a small Ladies Sangeet ceremony just like the typical traditional Punjabi style," a source told Bollywood Life

"There were dholkis that the women from Vicky's family played and they sang some Punjabi folk songs which are all about marriage, married life and the life that lies ahead for the young couple. Veena ji wanted to give Katrina and her family from London a taste of Punjabi culture and this fun family affair was just the right way to do it. Katrina also danced a little to the Punjabi songs on dholki beats and was smiling throughout."

Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's guest list is very select

Among the invitees are Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi, who flew to Jaipur yesterday. Neha and Katrina are very close friends and co-starred in the films Singh Is Kinng and De Dana Dan. Before they flew to the wedding, Neha shared this post of the new parents - they welcomed a son earlier this year - partying or, rather, attempting to. The comments thread is full of questions asking if the pictures are from Katrina's sangeet - alas not.
