Sonam Kapoor’s wedding with Anand Ahuja is a week away. And the invitations have been sent out to some of the closest friends of the Kapoor’s including Anupam and Kirron Kher, Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and wife Bharti, Jackie and Ayesha Shroff, Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
From among Sonam’s colleagues from the film industry, Jacqueline Fernandez, Swara Bhaskar and the cast of Sonam’s new film Veere Di wedding are expected to show up in full force. In addition, all of Anil Kapoor’s brothers and their family are expected to attend. Boney, however will not participate in the celebrations. There are rumours floating around that Anil’s lately-bereaved brother Boney’s daughters will be dancing to their deceased mother’s songs. But a friend on the invitees’ limited list says the wedding would be “extremely low-key.” There will apparently be around 300-350 guests.
Says the friend, “Sonam wanted it even more low key. But Anil and Sunita have spent close to 35 years in the film industry. They can’t leave out their close friends, of which there many.” One of the invitees said, “We haven’t been served a detailed itinerary for the 2-day wedding. All we’ve been told is to be there at the venue on May 7 and 8. We’ve also been requested not to share any of the details with any media person.”
