Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli Mumbai reception: Star guests prefer Manish Malhotra for the Sabyasachi weave gala

Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli's Mumbai reception, as expected, was a star-studded affair. From the Bachchans and Shah Rukh Khan, to Katrina Kaif and Sara Ali Khan, the reception was witness to celebs turning up in gorgeous designer wears. Here's a look at who wore what.

Madhuri Dixit Nene

Madhuri Dixit Nene is the queen of saris. Be it plain chiffon or a heavily embellished one, every time she steps out in the six-yard-wonder, we go weak in our knees and this time too, it was no different. Madhuri looked resplendent in a Tarun Tahiliani sheer and emerald green lace sari with gold embellishments on it. we love how she paired it with a polka embellished long sleeve sheer blouse, a pair of jhumkas, a red lip shade. The fact that she tied her hair in a neat bun adorned with flowers added to her oomph. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

When it comes to ethnic looks, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan usually delivers. But this time, it wasn't exactly black and white. For the occasion, the Bollywood beauty picked a white lehenga set by Manish Malhotra which she teamed with a sheer dupatta. We love her thread lace and pearl embroidered outfit, but the styling could have been a little better. Maybe, romantic curls or a soft updo would have done the work here. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

Sara Ali Khan

Sara Ali Khan made an appearance in an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla creation. It came as a no surprise that the starlet would pick up something from her favourite designer. We love how lovely and light the dusty lime green tulle and white embroidered lehenga set looked matched with the organza dupatta.

Meanwhile, Karan Johar looked dapper in a bespoke Manish Malhotra creation. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

Katrina Kaif

Katrina Kaif picked an icy blue Manish Malhotra outfit. The embellished crop top and the mermaid hem skirt styled with her signature hairstyle, and nude make-up did not work for her at all. We wish she would have chosen something more flattering than this ill-fitting ethnic wear. (Source: Instagram/manishmalhotra05)

Siddharth Malhotra

Siddharth Malhotra picked up an interesting Prussian blue bandhgala jacket with white and black floral work on the cuffs. We think he styled the Manish Malhotra number well with a simple pair of black trousers. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

Kriti Sanon,

We love how Kriti Sanon channelled elegance in a Manish Malhotra ivory thread and pearl embroidered sari with a sequined off-shoulder blouse. The statement earrings and the beautiful hair accessory on her bun added an extra oomph to her look. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

Aditi Rao Hydari

Aditi Rao Hydari looked gorgeous in a Manish Malhotra lehenga. We love how balanced her look is even with the touch of gold in her outfit. She styled it well with jewellery from Mahesh Notandass. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan stuck to his all-time favourite black and looked handsome while doing so. We love the touch of a grey and white, honeycomb style pocket square and the gold pin on the lapel. It broke the montony of the outfit beautifully. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

Vaani Kapoor

Vaani Kapoor too picked up a sheer, floral embellished sari by Manish Malhotra. Even though her make-up was spot on, we wish she did something with her mane and moved away from her signature hairdo. The same old, same old can get really boring. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

Lara Dutta

Lara Dutta picked up a shimmey Tarun Tahiliani anarkali for the event. She paired it with a Louis Vuitton bag. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

Sagarika Ghatge

Sagarika Ghatge looked radiant in a multi-coloured lehenga set. Even though we are not a big fan of the ensemble, we think she managed to carry it well. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir Kapoor looked extremley handsome in a grey plaid print suit which he paired with a tie and a black stud. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

Bhumi Pednekar

Bhumi Pednekar picked an egg white lehenga with silver embellishments on it. Even though she looked pretty with the nude make-up, we wished she added a pop of colour to her look with a bright lip shade. (Source: Varinder Chawla)


Sridevi looked gorgeous in an electric blue Manish Malhotra sari. (Source: Varinder Chawla)
