Shahid tells Ranveer, he is “not invited” for wedding


Ever since the news about marriage of Bollywood heartthrob Shahid Kapoor was spilled, the actor had been making headlines. Apparently, Shahid will tie the knot with Delhi based Mira Rajput on July 8 in the presence of family and close friends.

The actor will later host a grand reception in Mumbai on July 12 for his friends from the industry.

Shahid received the Best Actor trophy for his role in ‘Haider’ at the IIFA Awards held earlier this month. The hosts of the awards function, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor had a fun time with the actor when he came on stage to collect his award.

Ranveer played a journalist and asked Shahid about his impending marriage. The ‘Gunday’ star also asked whether he was invited for the wedding. But Shahid replied he was “not invited.” Both the actors took the joke sportingly and had a good laugh. However, it would be interesting to see whether Ranveer makes it to the list of invitees for Shahid’s wedding reception in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, it is known that besides the actor’s biological parents Pankaj Kapur and Neelima Azim, his step mother Ratna Pathak and ex-step father Rajesh Khattar who was earlier married to Neelima, and Rajesh’s current wife Vandana Sajnani will also attend the wedding. Shahid’s half brother Ishaan Khattar will also be present.

The destination for the wedding was also under much speculation. According to latest reports, the wedding ceremony will take place in Amritsar near the Beas River. Both the families of the bride and groom are members of the Radha Soami Satsang Beas and therefore, have decided the current venue for the celestial knot.
