The other guests included Aamir Khan, Yuvraj Singh, Mahesh Bhatt, Sachin Tendulkar, Rajkumar Hirani etc. The venue was blocked by fans and media personnel who were waiting for quite long to catch a glimpse of their favorite couple. Tight security measures were deployed as the party witnessed some of the most famed celebs in India.
The first one to arrive was family members of Virat’s family who posed together for the shutterbugs. After a few time, the newlywed couple arrived at the venue and once again stunned the audiences with their outfit and charming personalities.
