List of celebs who did not turn up for Arpita’s wedding

The wedding of Arpita Khan – the little sister of Salman Khan with her fiancée Aayush Sharma at the famed Faluknama palace at Hyderabad was a star studded affair. Still, quite a few Bollywood celebrities were marked by their absence. Here is a list of celebs who either did not receive an invitation or did not turn up for the occasion.

1. The Bachchan family – The first family of Bollywood was notably absent at the festivities. Amitabh Bachchan is said to be busy with the last stages of the shooting of ‘Piku’ in Kolkata. Abhishek was on the same plane as many invitees, but chose to fly to Chennai. Is it the shades of the romantic past of Salman with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan that is the real reason?

2. Ranbir Kapoor – This was another prominent absentee. Ranbir is the current boyfriend of Katrina Kaif whose name has been romantically linked with that of Salman Khan in the past. Katrina is close with Arpita and was invited and did turn up for the festivities. Other prominent members of the Kapoor family were also not present.

3. Shah Rukh Khan – The reigning superstar of Bollywood failed to make it to the wedding, though he was seen at the Haldi Sangeet in Mumbai and was even clicked with Salman for showering blessings on the bride. So, his absence may not be significant.

4. Arjun Kapoor – Another handsome face that was missing from the guest list was that of the Ishqzaade star Arjun Kapoor. Kapoor was mentored by Salman Khan, especially in matters of physical look and he also dated Arpita for two years before his entry into Bollywood. It is reported that Arjun was omitted not because of any fallout with Salman but rather at the request of the groom who was not comfortable having the ex boyfriend of his bride at the wedding.

5. John Abraham – The Bollywood hunk, John Abraham has never enjoyed cordial relations with Salman, especially after a disagreement at a rock concert in 2006. He too did not make the guest list.

6. Vivek Oberoi – This ex boyfriend of Aishwarya Rai accused Salman of mentally torturing Aishwarya when she was going out with him. Obviously, his name was not in the guest list.

7. Sana Khan – Though she got a big break in Salman’s film, ‘Jai Ho’, it is probably her recent negative publicity which caused her to be excluded from the guest list.

Other prominent Bollywood faces who did not make the event include Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha, Kajol and Ajay Devgan and Hrithik Roshan.
