Imran Khan’s ‘Big Indian Wedding’
Posted by Indian Fashion Police on February 6, 2011
Imran & Avantika Khan’s wedding reception was held on 5th February, 2011 at Taj Lands End in Bandra, Mumbai. The party which was thrown by his uncle Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao was a grand affair with the entire Bollywood industry attending it. Here is your sneak peek of the event with the bride, the groom and the hosts.
Oh how excited I am to see an Indian wedding of any relative or any celebrity for that matter. The amazing colours on gets to see the entire crowd wearing, the beautiful jewellery, the fragrant flowers all over, the delicious food and tons of enjoyment. Coming back to wedding, the recent celebrity to get hitched was our very own ‘chocolate boy’ Imran Khan to Avantika Malik who is daughter of Vandana Malik CNBC-TV 18 head honcho. The wedding took place on 10th January, 2011.
The bride wore a beautiful ash grey colour lehenga with pink, maroon and golden border which looked like one from Manish Malhotra’s latest collection and ethnic indian jewellery. The groom wore a bandhgala designed by Karan Johar-Varun Bahl looking every bit handsome. The ceremony took place at Aamir’s residence was a registered marriage attented by close family members only. While Mama Aamir Khan went for an black achkan with a stole also designed by Karan &Varun. Kiran Rao went for a black and blue outfit with silver work but the outfit is too much of a mess. On the whole the bride and the groom looked like a pair made for each other……………………………Congratulations to the newlyweds.
The Sangeet party was held at Karjat were the Malik’s own a farm-house. Avantika was all dressed red ‘Manish Malhotra’ Lehenga looking radiant. I liked her styling which was very mughal era inspired. While Imran wore a velvet Karan Johar - Varun Bahl Achkan with embroidery work. But I do prefer Avantika’s look over Imran’s. Nonethless many celebrities came in the sangeet party and gave their best wishes to the couple.
Aamir Khan also dressed in Karan Johar - Varun Bahl attire looked very good since the light colour suits him well while wife Kiran Rao was dressed in ‘Sabyasachi Mukherjee’ Lehenga. I like the way Kiran’s outfit works here since it is not too blingy yet very traditional. Love her jewellery though.
For the mehendi cermony the couple came very simply dressed where Avantika wore a Patiala Salwar-Kameez,Imran was dressed in a kurta over formal pants. Good to see that these guys have kept the ceremonies very simple, classy and real. As a fashionista I would say that the entire wedding affair was not at all over the top and done with some good taste in fashion sense.
The engagement took place last year in a private ceremony saw Avantika wearing a Varun Bahl creation and Imran in a Karan Johar - Varun Bahl Achkan. I am gravitating more towards Imran’s look since I feel that Avantika’s look is a bit too messed up especially the corset with an extended sleeve. But at the wedding the bride looked every bit graceful. Cheers to the newly weds.
