2. There will be a grand Bolly-reception in Mumbai on July 12th

Shasha’s wedding shall be a small, intimate affair in Punjab but he will return to the city of dreams soon after and throw his industry friends a big, lavish reception party. This reception shall reportedly take place at a beach-facing hotel with the who’s who of the film industry in attendance.

3. And the groom will be wearing…

For his big day, Shahid will be styled by designer Kunal Rawal and the newly married Masaba Gupta. Not only will Kunal ensure that the actor looks dapper on his ‘vivaah’ day but the designer has also set about working on Shahid’s ensembles for his bachelor’s do, sangeet, and other pre-wedding functions.

4. The bride’s trousseau is being done by

Masaba Gupta. Yes, Masaba is styling Shahid’s ‘dilliwali girlfriend’ for her big day and we sure can’t wait to catch a glimpse of the ‘pretty woman’ who will soon be claiming our heartthrob as her own!

5. Although the groom is having pre-wedding jitters

Yep, Sasha is reportedly losing sleep and having restless nights before the wedding. He even posted photos of himself looking wide awake in his bed, on his Instagram account. “Sleepless,” he captioned one picture, while with the other one, he wrote, “Whattodonosleepcomes.” [sic]

6. He is SO-litaire in love

Yep, that’s true. With Shahid sure of having found ‘his girl’ in Mira in just a couple of meetings at Radha Soami Satsang Beas, it is hardly a surprise that the ultra-romantic man would leave no stone unturned to make this a fairytale affair. Reportedly, Shasha has set a big solitaire-adorned custom ring on the finger of his lady love and it is worth a whopping 23 lakhs!

7. The couple will be blessed by Shahid’s mom-trinity

Shahid and his bride-to-be will be blessed by Shahid’s three mothers who are going to be an integral part of the wedding festivities – his biological mother, Neelima Azim, his step-mother and father Pankaj Kapur’s current wife Supriya Pathak, and Vandana Sajnani, the current wife of Rajesh Khattar, Neelima’s ex-husband.

8. And the whole FAMILY will be there too

Yep, this is obvious. But when Shahid’s biological mom Neelima Azim, her son Ishan Khattar (who has reportedly become ‘best buds’ with ‘bhabhi’ Mira), Pankaj Kapoor and Supriya Pathak with kids Sanah and Ruhaan Kapoor come together for the Shasha-Mira wedding, the grand union would be one thing to watch out for.

9. It is a card-free wedding

Yep, wedding on the cards. Check. Wedding cards? Nope, no check. There are no invitation cards for the Shahid Kapoor -Mira Rajput wedding as it is a small, intimate affair with just about fifty guests in attendance.

10. The menu is all-vegetarian

Since both families are followers of Radha Soami Satsang Beas and their Guruji is going to be a part of the happy union, the food spread is a simple vegetarian one.

11. The guest-list is …

Filmmakers Vishal Bhardwaj, Vikas Bahl, Imtiaz Ali, friend and choreographer Ahmed Khan (who Shasha is upset with, as he cannot make it to the wedding), co-stars Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, Shraddha Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha are all on the guest list. Reportedly, an invite to Saifeena has been sent too! And that’d sure be one of the BIG things to watch out for.

12. Honeymoon is not happening anytime soon

Since Shahid is replacing dancing diva Madhuri Dixit on the dancing reality show Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa, Shahid is unable to take off with lady love for a LOVE-ly honeymoon. His shoot for Udta Punjab, Shaandaar, and another unnamed project make a mini-moon impossible too. So, I guess the speculation about Shahid’s honeymoon destination would be rife with countless guesses and conjectures, well after the wedding brouhaha ebbs.

13. There is a blatant eX-factor to this wedding

Apparently, Shahid’s breakup with the-now-Mrs. Saif Ali Khan had not only left him but an entire nation heartbroken. But seems like all is well between the two now, as they come together for Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab. In fact, a report quoted Bebo saying,

“Both of us were performing at a Femina event. We chatted. So he actually told me about him getting married before he told the media. I’m very happy for him. He’s doing very well professionally… I haven’t seen Haider yet, but my sister saw it and loved it. And I can vouch for marriage being cool. I’d just like to wish him well.”

This apart, some of his alleged link ups in the past aren’t peeking in from the corners but might be attending the several functions. Among them are PeeCee, Vidya Balan, and Dabbang Sonakshi Sinha.

14. There are endorsement offers flowing in already

Many brands have already started raining offers on Shahid to feature in their commercials with wife-to-be. The report quoted a source saying that though Shahid represents few brands, his team has been getting inquiries from companies asking if he is open to endorse products along with Mira. Further to the report, matrimonial websites and companies dealing with paints, home décor and furniture have approached Shahid for the same.

15. And ohh, Shahid seems to be well on his way to be ‘joru’s and all joru’s,’ well ahead of his Vivaah

Shahid has already let the confirmation be afloat B-town that he shan’t be kissing on screen anymore. Furthermore, he has turned down Ekta Kapoor’s offer of XXX, an erotic thriller. Seems like Mira has dug out the honesty from amidst the ‘Kaminey’ quotient in our Shasha. All’s good, even so – for the nation loves SRK that way too. So we are good Shahid. Truce!

Stay tuned for the ‘vivaah’ of the year. Coming soon, on NLT! :)
