The marriage preparations of Bollywood's much awaited wedding of Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan have begun in full swing. Actress Sharmila Tagore is said to have started distributing invitation cards of her son's second wedding.

Though Saif and Kareena are yet to confirm the news, the wedding plans have already started in both families.   

"Begum of Mansoor Ali Khan of Pataudi aka Sharmila Tagore aka Rinku (her pet name) has sent out invites of her son's wedding to family and friends and the preps are going on in full swing in the Pataudi household," Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying.

Last month, the actress told Mid Day that the wedding will be a low-key affair and only close friends and family member are invited. "You'd be disappointed. No extravagant celebrations are planned. It would be a small family affair," she told the daily.

The wedding will take place in Delhi followed by a grand reception in Mumbai, putting all other venue rumors to rest.

However, Sharmila has not yet disclosed the wedding date. "D-day is in October, sometime. I am not at a liberty to disclose the date. You'd have to ask Saif," she said according to The Times of India.

According to Deccan Chronicle, the grand wedding day is scheduled to take place on Oct 17 and the reception will take place the following day.

Saif and Kareena have been dating for five years. Earlier this year the couple has officially announced that they will tie the knot after the release of their film "Agent Vinod".
