Saif weds Kareena at a grand ceremony
Mumbai: Bollywood star couple Saif and Kareena who started dating since 2007, decided to take their journey to new level by marrying each other. Today Saif tied the nupital knot to Kareena at his residence in suburban Bandra through a registered marriage. During the occasion close friends and relatives were present in the afternoon. The couple had officially declared their intention to tie the knot in the beginning of 2012 after the release of their film Agent Vinod in March.
A media source reports, “It was a registered marriage with three witnesses — Kareena’s father Randhir Kapoor, her mother Babita and Saif’s mother Sharmila.”. After the marriage both of them greeted the crowd and their fans who gathered in huge numbers as husband and wife. Saif looked dashing in a green kurta while Kareena wore a green salwar-kurta with a heavy embellished red dupatta wrapped around her. She teamed it up with minimal jewelry, red bangles and left her hair open. Kareena and Saif will have a nikaah ceremony at the Taj Mahal Palace hotel this evening. It is also known that Saif and Bebo will have a Christian wedding too, as Babita is a practicing Christian and that’s why the couple wants to go ahead with this ritual.
The registry marriage will be followed by a grand reception at a five-star hotel in the city today itself. A nikah has been planned at Saif’s ancestral house in Pataudi on October 17th while another reception is scheduled to take place in Delhi on October 18. Kareena and Saif’s best friend Shah Rukh Khan congratulated the couple by tweeting, “Happiest marriage bond to my friend Saif & Kareena. May Allah keep ur family healthy & happy. Just saw it is registered,sealed & delivered.”
Saif Ali Khan, who is 42, was previously married to actress Amrita Singh and they have two children who are now teenaged. For the 32-year-old Kapoor, it is her first marriage.
