Neil Nitin Mukesh tied the knot with Rukmini Sahay in Udaipur on 9 Feb. It was a dreamy destination wedding, attended by only close family and friends. After a 4-days grand affair in Udaipur, Neil threw a lavish wedding reception for his B-town friends, yesterday in Mumbai.

The couple looked regal in colour-coordinated ensembles. While Rukmini looked gorgeous in a heavily embroidered green lehenga, Neil looked dashing in a green and white Jodhpuri sherwani.

Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan attended the reception and heartily congratulated the newly-wed couple. Surprisingly, Rekha was also present at the party dolled up in a golden sari. Abhishek Bachchan also joined in, but later.

Neil’s Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo co-star, Salman Khan also graced the party with his delightful presence. Salman’s alleged girlfriend, Iulia Vantur also marked her presence and looked adorable in a black-golden lehenga. But as soon as his ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif entered the venue, Iulia left to avoid an awkward situation. However, Katrina looked exquisite in a pastel sari.

Randhir Kapoor, who turned 70, just a few days back, also made an entry with his mother, Krishna Kapoor.

Among the others who visited to congratulate Neil-Rukmini were Bipasha-Karan, Dino Morea, Aftab Shivdasani with his stunning wife, Abbas-Mustan, Kabir Bedi and Urvashi Rautela. Everyone looked ravishing and posed heartily for the shutterbugs.

Nitin Mukesh, Neil’s father, was the happiest man and couldn’t hide his happiness throughout the event. Earlier during the wedding vows, he had told media, “I couldn’t have asked for a more humbling or happy moment. God has been so kind. We are getting my darling Neil married and I want to tell you this… What he has done for the family, for the family’s name and for his grandfather’s name… We owed him something, and that’s what we have done with his wedding”. His eyes filled up with tears of joy while talking about his daughter-in-law, “Rukmini is just what we had dreamt for… She is just every bit of what we had dreamt for Neil. I hope they have a very happy life. I do want to see many grandchildren.”

Neil-Rukmini met via families and fell in love with each other instantly. Best wishes to the so-much-in-love couple!
