It’s just a matter of days when Kareena Kapoor will become a begum and Saif Ali Khan her husband. The wedding is slated for October 16 and will be followed by Dawat-e-Walima which is traditionally a wedding reception hosted normally a day or two after the wedding. The host could be the bride’s or groom’s family.
An invite given to the Nawab and Begum Kazim Ali Khan of Rampur has made it to the net and it looks pretty simple and without any ostentation of a big fat Indian wedding. The wedding reception invite is extended from Saif Ali Khan’s mother Sharmila Tagore, referred to as Begam Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi.
The Dawat-e-Walima is dated October 18. On top of the card is presumably the royal insignia of the Pataudis.
Meanwhile, the Pataudi palace is being renovated and decorated for the wedding, which will be a very private affair to be attended by the families of the bride and the groom. The wedding reception in Mumbai would be a grand affair and have the Bollywood’s who’s who in attendance.
