Neil Nitin Mukesh and Rukmini Sahay were in their best spirits one more time as they celebrated their happy reunion. Their love story was a private affair until it culminated into marriage, something only friends and family were aware of. And an lavish three-day long wedding fiesta in Udaipur last week, the newlyweds hosted a grand reception for their friends from Bollywood in Mumbai last night.
Neil and Rukmini made a glittering entry at their reception, catching eyeballs for their matching clothes. Neil was snapped greeting and smiling with all the guests, while his father Nitin Mukesh did the rest of hosting. Out of the first ones who came to bless the two, were none other than the Bachchans. Amitabh Bachchan arrived with wife Jaya and happily posed for the shutterbugs.
Neil and Rukmini’s big fat Punjabi wedding turned starry with every guest who arrived at the venue. Actors Jackie Shroff, Kabir Bedi, Neetu Chandra and Asrani also made it to the lavish reception. Superstar Salman Khan made a dapper entry. Interestingly, his two rumoured ladies – present girlfriend Iulia Vantur and ex Katrina Kaif arrived under the same roof too. But what came to be heard was that Iulia avoided Katrina and left soon after the Jagga Jasoos actor made an entry.
The entire venue had a European theme, and the decoration was done using white and pink carnations. While Enigma-the nightclub was kept for the youngsters to let their hair down, a separate banquet was allocated for celebrities to unwind while the couple met and greeted their near and dear ones.
Talking about the beautiful attire of Neil and Rukmini, which was in opulent tones of Ivory and emerald green, designer Manav Gangwani exuded sophistication and class. Handpicked from the ‘Begum-e-Jannat’ collection, the ensembles were an amalgamation of sentiments that were evoked by the word ‘Jannat’, meaning paradise with every design in the collection being a reflection of a visual piece of paradise to be owned and cherished.

Rukmini’s style and sensibility are simple and elegant keeping that in mind the ensemble selected for her reflects simplicity and elegance. Each garment has been tailor-made to perfection. I hope Neil and Rukmini enjoy wearing these outfits as much as I have enjoyed making it for them. Wishing the newlyweds all the very best for the future”.
According to Neil, “MG is family. He is like a brother and what better to have someone so close to you to be a part of such an important day in your life. Apart from that I personally love his aesthetics and style that each of his outfits exudes”
Adding to it, Rukmini said, “MG is synonymous with timeless fashion and every outfit tells a beautiful story. I always wanted him to design Neil and my reception outfit because his collection is subtle and yet makes a statement. It makes a wearer stand out in the crowd”.
