3 min read

Sonam ki mehendi that took place at Sonam Kapoor’s residence in Bandra, Mumbai was nothing less than a fashion parade. In attendance were everyone from the likes of Rani Mukerji, Rekha, Karan Johar, Jacqueline Fernandes, Varun Dhawan, Swara Bhasker, Katriana Kaif, Pernia Qureshi to the adorable Janhvi Kapoor.

While we saw several celebrities attending the ceremony to soak in the festive fervour, here’s a list of the ones that gave it a miss:

Ranveer: Because He Loves His Girlfriend?

A cousin to Sonam from her mother’s side, Ranveer must have been invited. So, why miss the occasion? Earlier, he was in Switzerland and hence there was an excuse. However, an image of the actor has emerged on social media – Instagram and it seems he is in Mumbai. Could it be because Sonam Kapoor and his girlfriend and Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone allegedly don’t get along with each other?

Meanwhile, Bollywood stars Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez posted a video on social media requesting Ranveer Singh to come for the event, watch below:


Ranbir: Ex-Files?

While Sonam Kapoor received a beautiful pre-wedding gift from Ranbir’s sister Riddhima Kapoor Sahni in the form of an emerald bracelet, the Sanju star skipped Sonam ki mehendi. Meanwhile, Ranbir was snapped with Ayan Mukherjee by the paparazzi at the big Ambani-Piramal engagement party on Monday night.

Deepika: Leading Ladies Rivalry?

This may come as a shock to many who saw the great camaraderie the two shared when they came together for an episode of Koffee With Karan (mainly because it was about Ranbir Kapoor). However, what most people missed was Sonam’s remarks on Deepika’s fashion sense in an episode the following season. And ever since, it surely hasn’t been a joy ride for the two leading ladies of Bollywood.

Buzz has it that Deepika, who was attending the MET Gala in New York is set to arrive in Mumbai on Tuesday and may attend the Sonam Kapoor-Anand Ahuja wedding reception in the evening at The Leela Hotel. Lets see if the two gorgeous ladies are all set to bury the hatchet or no!

Kareena: Veere On a Vacation

Well, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor may share an extremely close bond with each other, but we missed the former at Sonam and Anand Ahuja’s mehendi and sangeet ceremonies. While it was assumed that, Bebo will give Sonam’s wedding a miss since her holiday pictures wearing matching trench coats in London with husband, Saif Ali Khan were doing the rounds on social media. But Kareena and Saif were back on Monday night and made their presence felt at the Sonam-Ahuja wedding on Tuesday.

Alia: Work Life Crisis

Alia Bhatt seems to be extremely busy with Raazi promotions, which is why she had to give Sonam Kapoor’s mehendi ceremony a miss. Alia, during the promotion of Raazi, revealed that she will be present at Sonam's wedding on Tuesday, but she is not performing at her sangeet.
