Mumbai: If people were asked to point out one wedding in Bollywood they were eagerly waiting to watch, the answer would undoubtedly be that of Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor. Time and again instances of crying ‘Wolf!’ have happened, and wedding dates have randomly been scattered in the air. However, with Chhote Nawab and his Bebo finally having decided upon a date, the grapevine is now abuzz with other kinds of speculations.
From Kareena’s wedding dress which would supposedly be designed keeping in mind a certain sort of old-world charm to what exactly would be the menu for the once-in-a-lifetime event, the entire country has been on their toes. And now that an October date has been finalised, speculation has it that the entire extended Pataudi family might not be a part of Nawab sahib’s wedding ceremony.
A source close to the family revealed to a tabloid, “Saif`s first cousins and his aunt may not attend the wedding. While some of them are travelling, some have not been invited while the others don`t wish to be a part of the nuptials.”
Citing the wedding to be a “private affair”, veteran actress Sharmila Tagore has been exceptionally quiet about her son’s second wedding. Sources reveal that Tagore might have been “strictly instructed” to do so by the Pataudi family.
As they say, let time decide!
