October 16 it is. While actor-couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor have remained elusive about their wedding date, the final date is the one Saif’s mother, actor Sharmila Tagore, confirmed to the press more than three months ago. And, she has started sending out the invites. The wedding ceremony will be followed by a reception in Mumbai on October 17 — to be attended by Bollywood’s star brigade — and one in Delhi on October 18, to which Sharmila has reportedly invited friends of the Pataudi royal family as well as those from political circles, and no Bollywood personalities.
At the wedding ceremony, to be attended only by family, Kareena will wear the sharara Sharmila wore at her wedding in 1969. For the two receptions, Kareena has chosen designs by her favourite designer, Manish Malhotra.
“I am very happy for Kareena and very excited about designing for her. I have designed a red sari for the Mumbai reception and I am designing the outfit for the Delhi function,” he says.
