The winter wedding season kicked off in Mumbai last week with a glittering, four-day, big fat wedding involving families of a business tycoon and a realty major - the hot topic of discussion among the city's glamorous people.
The biggest wedding ever in recent years saw Kunal, son of a top city realtor and 'mall maharaj' Champalal Vardhan, tying the knot with Ritika, daughter of leading business tycoon Neeraj Rawal, a family source said.
The four-day wedding bash, rumoured to have cost around Rs.50 crore (Rs.500 million) attracted the top names from the celeb crowds ranging from industrialists, builders, film stars, politicians and other high-fliers from the city's who's who.
The most talked about marriage started with celebrations Nov 21, with the mehndi ceremony. However, a close family friend declined to comment on whether there was any added fervour to the festivities, owing to the hanging of Pakistani terrorist Kasab that morning.
Nevertheless, the celebrations spilled over to the next day (Thursday, Nov 22) with a fun-filled Bingo Night and an array of games and mischief, with eye-popping prizes for the winners: Mercedes, BMWs, Audis, paid foreign and domestic holidays, besides other expensive gifts.
Friday was the big wedding-eve 'sangeet' ceremony with live music, dance, fun and frolic in the presence of family members, friends and distinguished guests from different fields lending their weight to the event, held at Grand Hyatt, Santacruz.
Some of the prominent names spotted were: Ram Jethmalani, his son Mahesh, Sonam Kapoor, Ujjwal Nikam, Arshad Warsi, Rajeev Kapoor, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, Ujwal Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Narendra Baldota, Pradeep Rathod, Arvind Poddar, Raj Purohit, Anand Jain, Dilip Piramal, Jaydev Mody, Ankita Sheorey, Amit Bhosale, Pradeep Jain, Gautam Pokarns and many others.
These three days of 'starters' culminated in the Big Wedding Day Saturday night with a mega reception at the RWITC Grounds, famous as Mahalaxmi Race Course.
