Mumbai, May 8: The pre-wedding festivities of the most anticipated wedding in B-town have begun! Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s pre-wedding festivities kicked off with a mehendi ceremony on Sunday, and then a sangeet at the Sunteck Signature Island, in Mumbai’s Bandra-Kurla Complex, yesterday (May 7).
Actress Sonam Kapoor was elegance personified as she chose to be in sync with the ‘shades of white’ dress code for her sangeet ceremony on Monday evening, a day before her wedding.
Sonam wore a traditional dress that featured a heavily-embroidered gold blouse and ivory-gold lehena. She matched the dress with traditional jewellery — jadau neckpiece, maang-tika and jhumkas. Her hair was neatly done up in a long braid and adorned with a white garland. While on the other hand, Anand looked dashing in a matching coloured kurta paired with a Nehru jacket and a large emerald broché.
Several celebrities and close friends turned up at the function dressed in different shades of white.
While one of Sonam’s close friends and co-actress of “Veere Di Wedding” Swara Bhaskar flaunted her beautiful Manish Malhotra designed white and golden lehenga, father Anil Kapoor and brother Harshvardhan Kapoor looked dapper in white kurta pyjamas.
Her cousins Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor, Anshula Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Mohit Marwah with wife Antara, uncle Sanjay Kapoor and Bonny Kapoor, friends like Jacqueline Fernandez, Masaba Gupta, Shilpa Shetty, Karan Johar, Rani Mukherji, veteran actress Rekha and designer Kumal Rawal were also present.

Director Farah Khan, who has a huge leg injury, arrived with her three children.
Here are the videos from the Grand Sangeet Ceremony:
Last but not the least Daddy Anil Kapoor shaking his legs.
Though media was not allowed to go inside, all the guests came out and greeted the photographers. Sonam’s fans will have to do with sneak peeks and videos shared by her friends and family on social media.
Sonam and Anand will set to tie the knot on Tuesday (May 8). The reception and wedding party will take place at The Leela in the evening.
