Mumbai, Oct. 15 -- Over the last two weeks, designer Manish Malhotra has been working painstakingly on the antique Pataudi gharara that has been restored by Ritu Kumar for Kareena Kapoor's wedding, doing the final fittings and adding a touch of embroidery here and there.
He has also designed Kareena's other outfits, and made clothes for her sister Karisma and her two little daughters, which they will wear at the various wedding functions including tonight's private sit-down dinner. The nikaah and registered wedding will take place tomorrow at the Taj Mahal Hotel, Colaba.
After the roughly 15minute long ceremony, Bebo will change into a Manish Malhotra creation for the dinner. "She'll wear a elaborately embellished gharara. I have given a very old world charm to all the ghararas she'll be wearing," says Manish.
Last night, the couple's sangeet and dinner, which was held at Saif Ali Khan's Khar residence, was attended by 50 guests, including their families and friends, and close associates of Sharmila Tagore. The theme for the party was 'Indian'. On October 18, at the reception in Delhi, Kareena will wear a Manish Malhotra creation once again.
