Celina Jaitley, Dharmendra, Manisha Koirala, Urmila were all seen shaking a leg. While Fardeen was dressed in white it was dad Feroze who stole the show and looked dapper in an all black ensemble.

The Wedding Ceremony
What was different and special about the wedding held at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai was that there was no Nikah ceremony or Hindu rites. It was a civil ceremony with a registrar performing the deed and the bride was walked down the aisle by her father. The brides lehenga was designed by her mother-in-law in red and gold while Fardeen Khan's outfit (a gift from his favorite designer Shahid Amir) was deep, electric blue in color with opulent resham and Lucknavi dhaaga work, highlighted with baadla thread and Swarovski crystal.

Cocktails set the tone with Barbecue Chicken, Cilantro Fried Fish, Pepper Spiced Corn Tarts and Falafel with Chili Tahina. Appetizers like Roast Chicken with Fusilli and Cherry Tomatoes, Grilled Mushrooms, Onions and Paprika were served.

The Hot Indian Food section offered Murg Tulsi Korma, Amchuri Bhindi Babycorn and Dhania Mattar Pulao to name a few. A special attraction of the evening was a Live Grill Station that had Teriyaki Sauce with Chicken Breast, Lamb Chops, and Parsley Potatoes, among other delicacies.

The Grand Hyatt also arranged for a Baked Potato live station, Risotto live station, Pasta live station and ice cream live station to cater to the crème de la crème attending the event. Apart from ice cream, the guests were also treated to a large variety of traditional Indian dishes like Gulab Jamun, Malpua, Jalebis, Walnut Tarts, and Mocharoulade.

For the reception, the hotel laid out an even more ornate menu. To spice up the cocktails, the chef and his team rustled up Spicy Shrimps with Remoulade Sauce, Murg Achari Tikka, and Babycorn Bezule among others. Keeping the veggies and teetotalers in mind, a live salad station was prepared to serve exotic salad concoctions.
