New Delhi: Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja's wedding is just round the corner and this big fat Bollywood wedding has intrigued everyone. Everybody wants to know where's the wedding, whose wearing what, whose performing on Sonam's sangeet and who is on the Kapoors and Ahujas guests list and of course, who all are not attending. We have most of these questions covered for you. Sonam Kapoor's wedding will be as per Sikh tradition - the wedding card which went viral a few days ago states that the "Anand Karaj" ceremony will be held in a Bandra bungalow (which reportedly belongs to Sonam's aunt Kavita Singh).
- The Ahuja and the Kapoor men are reportedly roping in Raghavendra Rathore
- Janhvi has reportedly planned a special performance for the sangeet
- Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor will dance to Anil Kapoor's song
Unlike Anil Kapoor's Mumbai home which lights-up like a starry sky during the night, Sonam's aunt's bungalow did not display any exterior decorations as of Thursday. The 2-storeyed building has several Bougainvillea bushes in the open space and we're sure the place will look like a dream once the exteriors are aptly decorated.
What The Groom's Wearing:
According to an IANS report, the Ahujas are reportedly giving designer Raghavendra Rathore the charge of the groom's wardrobe. In addition, the Kapoor men have also reportedly approached Raghavendra to dress them for the wedding functions.
Raghavendra Rathore is a favourite of Kapoor men, who've donned the designers' achkans and suits at several other family events. We know that the dress code for the mehendi function and wedding ceremony is Indian traditional and of course, Raghavendra Rathore seems like an apt choice. Raghavendra Rathore's association with the Kapoors goes back to 2014 film Khubsoorat, in which Fawad Khan wore the designers' bespoke outfits.
Sonam Kapoor's cousins are reportedly leaving no stone unturned to give their sister a Bollywood-style sangeet ceremony (which hasn't been mentioned on the viral wedding invitation). Arjun Kapoor, Shanaya, Anshula and others are reportedly prepared to dance to Sonam's hit tracks such as Abhi to Party Shuru Hui Hai and songs from her upcoming Veere Di Wedding. According to a mid-day report, Janhvi Kapoor will perform to a medley of her late mother Sridevi's popular songs while Ranveer Singh (Sonam's maternal cousin) and Arjun will dance to Anil Kapoor's My Name Is Lakhan
Farah Khan was in charge of choreographing the sangeet (she said so on a television show) but will her fractured foot come in the way of her making Sonam's sangeet night spectacular?
The Kapoors and Ahujas are very well connected and of course, a bevy of stars from the Khans to the Bachchans are expected to attend the wedding/reception. However, Deepika Padukone may not have RSVP-ed to the Kapoors. As per a mid-day report, Deepika will be attending the Met Gala on May 7 -the same day as Sonam's mehendi function.
Sonam Kapoor will walk the Cannes red carpet a day after Deepika Padukone this year. Both Sonam and Deepika will attended the film festival as L'Oreal brand ambassadors.
Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja are getting married on the morning of May 8 and a reception for the newly-weds will be hosted later in the day.
