Bollywood grace Manish Malhotra's niece Riddhi's wedding reception


Mumbai’s JW Marriott hotel saw the wedding reception of Riddhi Malhotra and Tejas Talwalkar on Monday evening. The grand ceremony was attended by several famous personalities from both the corporate, as well as Bollywood world. Tejas is a well known personality as Talwarkar chain of gyms is a big name- he might be currently busy with his family business, but has his eyes set on filmdom as he is simultaneously working with filmmaker Ashutosh Gowarikar, while Riddhi is filmmaker Punit Malhotra’s sister and Manish Malhotra’s niece.

Their sangeet ceremony that was held on Sunday drew special attention as it was spiced up by a rumored romantic getaway. Oh no, the bride and groom did not elope! It was rather the lovebirds Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra. This ‘Student of the Year’ couple set the tongues wagging when they spent each moment of the ceremony together and they left together as well- giving an excellent chance to the media to cook romantic stories. Riddhi was dressed as the typical Indian bride- looking absolutely gorgeous in a maroon full sleeved lehenga adorned with golden sequins and matching heavy jewelry and Tejas wore an all black sherwani.

The celebration continued with the auspicious wedding ceremony on Monday, with the groom wearing white this time and the bride in classic blue lehenga with even prettier jewellery and hair tied up with the traditional gajra. Several prominent figures of B-town turned up to bless the couple. Rekha was clad in a golden sari while Priyanka Chopra was dolled up in a Manish Malhotra designed pink saree embellished with silver embroidery. Karishma Kapoor kept it simple with her sober white saree and Urmila Matondkar’s saree was a terrifc combination of white and velvety red with golden work.

Twinkle, seen with hubby Khiladi Kumar, wore quite a simple all- white salwar kurta and Vidya Balan wearing somewhat mix of red-purple-green appeared with Siddharth Roy Kapoor. Sridevi, with Boney Kapoor, was seen in lehenga having the same shade as Priyanka’s saree, but with more detailed work. But Esha Gupta seemed to outshine all the Bollywood beauties, credit goes to her more than perfect figure that looked even more captivating with her excellent choice of clothes- a designer white blouse paired with red desi skirt with delightful silver work.
