FANS, SECURITY AND BARAAT!
Newlyweds Shahid and Mira hosted a wedding reception away from flashbulbs but amid much fan frenzy
Considering his fan following, everyone expected some drama at actor Shahid Kapoor’s wedding to Delhi girl Mira Rajput on Tuesday, and drama there was. Teary-eyed girls dressed in bridal finery crowded the lobby of The Oberoi, Gurgaon, where Shahid’s wedding celebrations were underway, and waited for the actor for hours before the hotel security politely told them to leave.
With multi-tier security in place, the hotel was pretty much a fortress as the newlywed couple hosted a reception in the evening for 200 people at The Grand Ballroom. The menu was eggless-vegetarian and no alcohol was served, so we spotted many young guests walking out of the party to have drinks at the hotel bar that was just across the reception venue. The menu included Indian, Asian and European fare. While Shahid, 34, sported an all-black ensemble topped with a pocket square, Mira, 21, wore a caped golden Anamika Khanna outfit. Shahid matched steps with Mira as the two danced to Tu Mera Hero from Desi Boyz (2011). Later, the couple danced with Mira’s sisters, brothers-in-law and parents.
After wrapping up the reception, Shahid, Mira and their close friends moved to another venue at the hotel for an after-party that went on till late in the night.
