They took a two-day break after the grand wedding they hosted for Arpita Khan in Hyderabad’s Faluknuma Palace, which was a lavish but private affair. On Friday night, once the family had recuperated from all the partying, the Khans threw a regal reception at a hotel in Bandra to mark Salman Khan’s little sister’s wedding to Delhi-based businessman Aayush Sharma. Members of the Khan family — Arbaaz, Sohail, Malaika, among others — greeted each guest as they arrived at the entrance.
Most of Salman’s friends and colleagues showed up, including Karisma Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Govinda, Ajay Devgn, Hrithik Roshan and Anil Kapoor, as did his ex-girlfriend Sangeeta Bijlani. Many from the young crop was invited too such as Shradhha Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, Aditya Roy Kapur and Imran Khan with wife Avantika. Also in attendance were Salim and Helen’s friends, Vinod Khanna, Ramesh Sippy, Waheeda Rehman, Dilip Kumar, Saira Banu and Asha Parekh. Javed Akhtar could not make it but Farhan and Zoya Akhtar attended the party. The limelight was stolen by Shah Rukh Khan who gave Salman a warm hug upon arrival and then greeted his mother Salma Khan.
