Bollywood stars Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor were pronounced husband and wife in a registered marriage on Tuesday afternoon, giving a filmy end to their their five-year-old relationship.
The marriage took place just a day after the couple organized sangeet ceremony at Kareena's Bandra residence that was graced by many big names from the film industry.
The Tuesday's marriage was a quite affair that was held at Saif's residence in suburban Bandra in the presence of the couple's close family members. Saif's mother Sharmila and Kareena's parents Randhir Kapoor and Babita were the three witnesses of the marriage.
It is reported that the newly-weds will throw a grand reception at a Mumbai hotel on Wednesday, followed by another reception at Delhi on Thursday. However, the ceremony at Saif's ancestral Pataudi Palace is expected to take place a little later.
It was earlier reported by a section of the media that the couple had booked several hotels for their big fat wedding, and that Sharmila Tagore had sent out invitations for the Dawat-e-Walima. It's also said that she has invited President Pranab Mukherjee to the event but he is unlikely to make it.
It may be recalled that Kareena ended her three-year relationship with actor Shahid Kapoor. She met Saif during the shooting of "Tashan" in 2007 and since then their relationship was going strong till they parted ways in 2010.
The marriage was Kareena's first, while Saif was earlier married to actress Amrita Singh with whom he has two children - son Ibrahim and daughter Sara.
