Since it was a Sufi night, the cuisine featured robust flavors and mouth-watering delicacies from the North West frontier.
The celebrations reached a full crescendo the next evening with a perfectly planned Bollywood Sangeet Night at Leela Kempinkski. There were huge posters from movies like Rab ne Bana Di Jodi, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge with bride and groom’s faces morphed on them.
