Bachchans, Akshay, Deols at Smita Thackeray’s son


Smita Thackeray’s son tied the knot last week and the reception was held on 13th February. Rahul Thackeray got married to Aditi Redkar in Sahara Star in Andheri, a suburb in western Mumbai. The bride dazzled in a black dress, while Smita Thackeray wore a shiny golden outfit. The wedding was attended by several politicians and big names of B-town. Many celebrities turned up to shower the newlyweds with blessings. Well known families like the Bachchan and Kapoor khandan were spotted at the event.

Actress Juhi Chawla came all dolled up in a pastel sari and some exquisite jewellery. She was seen with husband Jay Mehta. Amitabh Bachchan was spotted in white kurta and a shawl. He waved at the cameras as he stepped out of the car. He was accompanied by Jaya Bachchan, dressed in dark pink sari. Big B was then seen greeting politician Chhagan Bhuhbal on the occasion. Actors Rakesh Roshan and Jitendra posed for pictures as they arrived. Priya Dutt came with husband Owen Roncon. The Kapoor brothers Randhir and Rishi Kapoor came together. Actor R Madhavan looked stunning in satin trousers and an elegant jacket. Singer Sonu Nigam appeared with wife Madhurima.

Actors Retiesh Deshmukh, Dharmendra and Akshay Kumar came to the reception without their better halves.  Retiesh Deshmukh kept it simple with a white pajama and blue kurta, but looked handsome nevertheless. Dharmendra Deol came too, but he was alone as Dream Girl couldn’t be seen anywhere. Akshay Kumar sported a black suit with blue shirt. Sunil Shetty turned up with wife Manna Shetty. Former cricketer S Sreesanth was accompanied by wife Bhuvaneshwari.

Sunidhi Chauhan was a total head-turner in her elegant black sari paired with pink blouse. Shaina NC was seen escorting Salman Khan's father Salim Khan. Also seen was politician Sushil Kumar Shinde along with Satyapal Singh, the former Police Commissioner of Mumbai. Other personalities present were veteran adman Prahlad Kakkar, music composer Anu Malik, Rajkumar Hirani, Sajid Nadiadwala, Satish Kaushik, composer-singer Bappi Lahiri and choreographers Ganesh Acharya and Shiamak Davar.

Aditi Redkar is Rahul Thackeray's childhood sweetheart. The two know each other since kindergarten. The couple got engaged last year. The engagement ceremony had been a simple one at Levo Restaurant in Andheri. The couple tied the knot earlier this month at a simple wedding ceremony held in Bandra Kurla Complex. Just like the sangeet, it was attended by few family members like Uddhav Thackeray, Rashmi Thackeray, Aaditya Thackeray and some close friends.
