We have all the details. Save yourself from the information overload that is consuming our social media feeds right now, and scroll down to find 7 things you should know about their wedding festivities ahead of their main event.
1. An Intimate Mehndi Function
The Kapoor-Bhatt wedding festivities have officially begun with an intimate mehndi ceremony at Ranbir Kapoor’s Vastu residence in Mumbai. Images of their star-studded mehndi surfaced (none of the couple’s, mind you!) earlier today that included Karan Johar, Kareena Kapoor, Karishma Kapoor, Ayan Mukherjee, and the duo’s immediate families. By the looks of it, the function was for close friends and family only and the couple will be following an intimate theme for all their wedding functions.
2. Haldi Ceremony
According to reports, the star duo’s Haldi ceremony will take place today before their main wedding ceremony at 3 pm. Neetu Kapoor and Ridhima Kapoor talked to the press post the mehndi function where they confirmed that the wedding is today. We can’t keep calm, can you?
3. Where’s The Wedding?
Pinkvilla reports that all the events will take place at Ranbir Kapoor’s Vastu Residence, including, haldi, choora, and the main event.
4. Wedding Arrangements
Ghar sajj gaya! Not only ghar, but the entire street! Stunning images of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s houses and the Pali Hill road in front of Vastu are making rounds on social media & they are lit up with gorgeous lights all over, giving us proper desi shaadi vibes!
5. Prateek Kuhad Performed At Their Mehndi!
Major FOMO! Indian singer Prateek Kuhad was reportedly spotted outside Vastu before the duo’s mehndi and the media is speculating that he may have performed at the ceremony. Which song do you think he sang for the couple? We are guessing Kasoor!
6. Who Is The Bride Wearing?
A question that everyone has on their minds, an imperative one at that – Which designer did Alia Bhatt choose to wear on her big day? Well, keeping up with the Bollywood tradition, Alia Bhatt has decided to be a Sabyasachi bride (just like many other mainstream Bollywood actresses) & we already know we’ll be gushing at her bridal look. Sabyasachi never disappoints and that’s a fact!
According to reports, Sabyasachi carry bags were spotted outside their wedding venue. How very exciting!
7. Ace Indian Make-Up Artist, Mickey Contractor To Glam Up The Couple
Pinkvilla has revealed that India’s much-acclaimed makeup artist, Mickey Contractor will be styling the couple for their wedding. How glamorous! (We didn’t expect anything less from the couple either).
Do you know what’s the cherry on top? Brahmastra, which is a highly anticipated Ranbir Kapoor & Alia Bhatt starrer, releasing on September 9, 2022, will be their first movie together as a married couple, and as a gift for the much-loved duo’s fans and to congratulate them as they embark on a new journey, Dharma Productions posted an audio teaser of one of the songs from the movie, Kesariya.
The timing is spot on, was it a coincidence? We think not! Planned or not, it has struck a chord with their fans and the excitement level has increased tenfold.
