Bollywood actor Preity Zinta’s wedding reception was every inch the big, fat Bollywood affair it was expected to be. The actor, who got married to Los Angeles-based businessman Gene Goodenough in a hush-hush ceremony earlier this year, had all the industry biggies coming in.
Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar, Shahid Kapoor with wife Mira, Abhishek Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit and Farah Khan were just some of those who showed up to wish the newly weds. Cricket fraternity was also well represented with Yuvraj Singh making an appearance with fiancee Hazel Keech. The 41-year-old actor is the part owner of IPL team King’s XI Punjab.
Preity looked beautiful in a red gown while Gene was dapper in a suit. The couple had married in the USA on February 29. Gene’s family has flown in from the US to attend the bash. Preity earlier posted her images with the in-laws at the Taj Mahal.
Salman, who came in after midnight, caused a stir among the media when alleged girlfriend Iulia Vantur followed him in another car. There was buzz that the couple will make their relationship official at the reception.
Madhuri, looking radiant, was with husband Sriram Nene. Abhishek showed up without wife Aishwarya who is in Cannes for the film festival. Shahid and Mira walked hand-in-hand. Mira, who is in her second trimester, looked very much the glowing mother to be.
Lara Dutta came with husband Mahesh Bhupathi. Sushmita Sen and Dia Mirza were also seen at the event.
