The who’s who of Bollywood, especially music were there at Juhu Club Millennium, and Bollywood beauties were dressed in their traditional best.
Usha Uthup sang her super hit tracks and Alka Yagnik and Ila Arun entertained the audience with Choli Ke Peechey Kya Hai while Sophie Choudry performed to Jor Ka Jhatka Hai Joro Se Laga. Taneesha, was escorted on stage by her best friend, Shraddha Kapoor, and she and her friends danced to energetic numbers like Mast Kalandar and Desi Girl. She performed solo to Bole Chudiyan, and later the to-be-weds performed to the tunes of Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai. Many other friends of the family did impromptu dance performances.
